3 Stops You Need to Make On Your Road Trip From Michigan


Prepare For the Trip

The drive from Michigan to Central Ohio isn’t a long one. If you’re starting in Detroit, for example, it only takes about three and a half hours. (This is the perfect amount of time to enjoy the ride without getting weary!) Before you hop in your car and turn the key in the ignition, here are a few things you need to think about.

  • Make a list of all the items you need for the weekend and only pack those. You don’t have to overpack for a short getaway!
  • Store some water bottles and snacks in your car. It will save you a trip to the gas station.
  • Make a playlist! A road trip is more fun with great music playing in the background.
  • Use a map or make sure your itinerary is loaded on your phone before your departure. You never know when you might lose service along the way.

Lunch in Toledo

The first stop on your way to Central Ohio should be Toledo, OH. Hop on I-75 and drive south for about an hour. This fun city is a great place to grab lunch on the way. Taste some of the best food in town at Real Seafood Company Toledo while enjoying gorgeous river views. Before you get back on the road, treat yourself to a trip to the zoo and marvel at all of the incredible animals.


History in Upper Sandusky

The next stop on the map is Upper Sandusky. It’s an hour and a half from Toledo, making this the longer portion of the road trip. Once you get to Upper Sandusky, head to the Indian Mill Museum and learn about the fascinating history of the region! You can stretch your legs and enjoy a variety of fun activities. Plus, you’ll love all the exhibits featured in this historic landmark, which was built in 1861.
