Rainy day suggestions for kids and adults

Hello,

I’ll be visiting Hocking Hills (staying in Logan) this weekend and am looking for rainy day activities for three adults and two kids (ages 7 and 5). The kids are from Columbus, and this is their first outdoor getaway that is not a beach vacation. We’re hoping to have enough dry weather to visit Old Man’s Cave, Ash Cave, and maybe Conkle’s Hollow. The kids want to play mini-golf, go to a petting zoo, and swim in the hotel pool. The adults want to visit a couple of wineries. It looks like the weather may not cooperate with our outdoor plans. Can you please offer suggestions for indoor activities that are not in the Columbus area, since three in my travel party live there and are looking forward to new/different things to do?

Thank you!

Thanks, superposer. The waterfalls were nice last weekend,

Here’s what we ended up doing:

Day 1 - Our first stop was the visitor center and pencil sharpener museum in Logan. The kids had fun looking at all of the pencil sharpeners. It stopped raining, so we went to Old Mans Cave. We didn’t get far before it started pouring, so we turned around and went to the hotel so the kids could swim in the pool. It was still raining in the late afternoon/evening, so we went wine tasting at Hocking Hills Winery, then got dinner at Millstone BBQ.

Day 2 - We started the day with Cedar Falls, then went to our candle making appointment at the Wind Chime Shop. We spent about an hour checking out the shops and making candles, which was just long enough for the rain to end. Next up was Ash Cave, then a stop at Grandma Faye’s for some food. We were going to try Old Man’s Cave again, but it started raining again, so we just went back to the Wind Chime Shop to pick up the candles. It stopped raining by the time we got back to Logan, so we took the kids to Remples Grove for mini golf, ice cream, and to feed the goats. We took dinner back to the hotel and let the kids swim in the pool for the rest of the evening.

Day 3 - We finally made it to Old Man’s Cave, and we’re able to see both waterfalls and the Cave. The kids enjoyed the tunnels on this hike, and had fun building a rock tower at the lower falls. Rock House was our second stop, then we drove over to Laurelville to visit Muddy Boots Farm.

It ended up being a fun weekend!
