Weekend Things to Do in the Hocking Hills - May 11-12

It's another weekend full of fun things to do in the Hocking Hills!

Whether you want to get outside to explore or check all of the fun things you can do indoors here, there is a lot going on. Here's what you should plan on doing this weekend:

Go for a Hike

It's going to be a great weekend for a hike. You have two chances to explore the Hocking Hills with others this weekend. There is a moderately strenuous hike at Whispering Cave. Or if you are looking for an easier hike, get to Old Man's Cave to learn about this cave's history. 

Stop at the Naturalist Cabin

You can always learn something interesting at the Naturalist Cabin. This weekend, it's all about the wildlife that call the Hocking Hills home. A naturalist will be on hand to answer all of your questions. 

Go on a Date

The Ridge Inn Restaurant is hosting Sweet Second Saturday. This is your chance to take the one you love on a date with live music and dinner specials. 

Pick Up a New Hobby

You can check out the Second Sunday Beadmaking at the Ohio Glass Museum. Here you will find demonstrations and chances to try your hand at the craft. Or try paper quilling at The Bowen House. 

Make a Stop at the Farmers' Market

Get started eating local with a stop at the Athens Farmers' Market or the Lancaster Farmers' Market. And even better, you'll get the chance to shake the hand of the person that made your food. 

See the Work of Local Artists

Want to see some local art? The Can Do Creations Annual Art Show is here! This is a great opportunity to support local artists while also a local nonprofit. 

Hear Live Music

Let the music of the Hocking Hills warm you up this winter. Make a stop at Brewery 33,  Hocking Hills Winery or RockSide Winery & Vineyards to hear great local music while also drinking local. 

See the Stars

There's nothing quite like a beautiful starry night. And that starry night looks even better at the John Glenn Astronomy Park. Bring your whole family to marvel at the beauty of the night sky.
