It’s the 6th Annual Hocking Hills Comfort Food Cruise and 2019
brings more choices than ever!


comfort food cruise

Thanks to the popularity of this event it has grown to 16 restaurants serving up classic comfort foods, both savory and sweet.  This year your $18 purchase will provide you with a ticket book of 12 tickets. You pick the restaurants you want to visit.  Buy one ticket book or multiple – it just depends on how hungry you are.  Ticket books may also be shared.

Whether it feels like home, or it’s your first time in our neck of the woods, there’s no better way to explore the region than on a cruise through the Hocking Hills. Enjoy the beauty of winter while indulging in some of your favorite comfort foods. For six days, you can taste these dishes all around the region. Go for the gusto and try to taste all in a day or take a leisurely tour and take as long as six days. Best of all, there are plenty of things to do in Hocking Hills. At the first guilty twinge, just set out for a hike on one of our trails toward a popular site such as Old Man’s Cave, Ash Cave, Rock House and Conkle’s Hollow, Cedar Falls and Cantwell Cliffs. In addition to using some of that comfort food fuel, you will be treated to a feast for the senses as you pass cave walls covered with ice beards and waterfalls frozen in suspended animation.

Ticket Books are $18.  $5 of every ticket book sold will benefit local food pantries.
