We have had a fun couple of days while my husband attended a conference in Steubenville, Ohio. While not exactly a tourist hot spot area of the US, it was very quaint, refreshingly quiet (I am always surprised at the difference in traffic in cities outside of Toronto) and fun to explore. Here is the quickest of glances at our whirlwind trip:
We visited the Good Zoo in neighbouring West Virginia. Small-ish, manageable zoo with a decent train ride and fun interactive bird feeding area. Best part was the robotic dinosaurs (note my son’s tentative expression! Had to explain they were pretend!) and the expansive model train set.
For 8 months in the late 1700’s Fort Steuben was erected to protect US surveyors from mapping out this area of Ohio. They have reconstructed the fort in great detail and as a bit if a history nerd (and lover of old interiors) we had fun exploring each part of the fort.
How is your summer going? What fun adventures are you up to?
