Wally World Riverside Resort
In a peaceful valley setting along Ohio’s Mohican River, Wally World Riverside Resort offers a rustic beauty and charm to all its visitors. About midway between Columbus and Cleveland, the resort is in Ohio’s vacation center, with the Great Lakes only a two-hour drive to the north.
The Mohican State Park and Dam provide a large lake for seasonal water activities, and the extensive Mohican Memorial State Forest provides year-round hiking and many other activities.
The closest area attraction is Malabar Farm State Park where displays review the state’s agricultural heritage. Its sustainable agricultural library maintains volumes of historical information, and the 32-room country home of author Louis Bromfield, located here, is open for tours.
Bromfield was a man of many passions and interests, and his lovely farm, which he reclaimed from ecological collapse, was one of his most abiding interests. The house is in mint condition, the fields are prosperous, and it’s a marvelous place for collections of paintings and sculptures including works by Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, George Bellows, and Frederick Remington.
To the east of the resort, in Holmes, Wayne, and Tuscarawas Counties is the largest population of Amish in the world. The best way to enjoy Amish country is to simply explore it, traveling the back roads and lanes at the same pace that the Amish do, which is gently, indeed.
No trip to Amish country would be complete without visiting Lehman’s Hardware store in Kidron. It caters to the particular needs of the Amish and stocks such items as sad irons, propane refrigerators, and huge copper and cast-iron kettles. In nearly every community you’ll find the Amish making clocks, chairs, desks, carriages, harnesses, and more.
