COLUMBUS, Ohio – The 2016 Ohio Travel Guide is now available for digital download or as a print magazine. The 2016 guide has been modernized to better reflect the new Ohio. Find It Here. brand and create a more engaging and inspiring resource for travelers.

“The new travel guide has been reconstructed to feature a magazine format boasting rich visuals and stories which share the emotional connections that can be made in Ohio,” said Mary Cusick, director of TourismOhio. “We want to turn people’s heads toward Ohio as a tourism destination and pique their interest in visiting Ohio.org for information and tools to plan their trips.”

Changes to the 2016 Ohio Travel Guide include:

  • Appearance – The new guide is one-half inch wider than previous versions allowing for larger, more beautiful and expressive photos.
  • Content – The guide content has been revamped to highlight feature-length stories, interviews and even background on the writers. Each of the five regional sections includes more content focused on authentic experiences including dining, shopping and lodging. In keeping with consumer trends, the guide contains fewer listings for services travelers research online.
  • Timing – The 2016 Ohio Travel Guide is available a month earlier than previous years to help prompt spring and summer travel planning.
