Breathe in the moonlit air as you wander down lamp-dotted bridges crisscrossing the waters below, perhaps pausing to listen to the lapping of the tide against the pilings beneath your feet. The scent of potential hangs richly in the wind, and there are only contented smiles as far as the eye can see. You’ve reached Tiffin, Ohio, and all of its unexplored streets await.
Tiffin—an arcadia in the northern echelons of Ohio—continues to attract visitors with its pervasive dedication to a carefree way of life. Towering oaks line the shores of the Sandusky River. The waters gently pass through town, past the brick facades of bustling riverfront shops, authentic local pubs where the scent of malt vinegar and sizzling sausages perpetually linger, and Tiffin hotels where doors open to reveal plush entryways and down-stuffed pillows to guide you towards the land of Nod. No schedules dictate your day (or night); wandering wisely is the only way to visit here.
Nearby Columbus awaits your untimed arrival à la one of the available Tiffin rental cars. Journey from the forest-swathed hotels in Tiffin, OH southward toward the increasingly delectable aromas drifting from the big city. Follow your nose to the center of town, then deposit your automobile to continue your appetite-driven expedition on foot. Pasta aficionados will sigh with delight; selections range from cumin-heavy Somali fusion to the curious local “chili”—tender meat infused with piquant cloves, cinnamon and a drizzle of dark chocolate (but never beans) and served atop spaghetti noodles, crowned with a heap of shredded cheese. Once the soporific post-meal waves begin to wash over you, head toward the inviting hotels near Columbus for a night filled with pleasant dreams and a day that promises new surprises.
