Reviews
If you've have a day, longtime television travel reporter Neil Zurcher has a destination . . . Whether you are new to the state or you've lived here all of your life, it's a pretty safe bet that Zurcher, who shares more than 500 of his stops and what made them worth it, will show you something in Ohio you've never seen or heard of. — West Life
Neil Zurcher mixes trivia and insight in yet another Ohio travel book, finding the tasty and strange in-out-of-the-way towns throughout the state. Ohio Road Trips divvies the state into five sections, and then catalogs the weirdness and intrigue that just might be worth a visit. In fact, a college kid with a road-trip jones could do worse than randomly picking destinations from this guide. — Free Times
Zurcher certainly has the knowledge and experience to attest to the regional excursions that can provide new, fascinating and at times, conscientious experiences without breaking the bank. — Balanced Living Magazine
Whether you fancy watching workers at the Coblentz Chocolate Co. hand dip chocolates in Walnut Creek or finding solitude in Ohio's least-known state park (Beaver Creek State Park, north of East Liverpool), Zurcher's book will satisfy the pickiest wanderlust. — Morning Journal
