What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

In no particular order:

This is a fantastic little place. Comfy, welcoming and local. My husband and I love to come here for food, good drinks and Keno. As a native Cincinnatian as well, their goetta special for breakfast is the best. By far one of the best places at Indian Lake. - Yelp Review

If you like thin, crispy, flavorful, made from scratch and easy to eat squares, then this is the place to eat pizza. I love Cassano's. There is no other pizza I've had that tastes like theirs. Family tradition and always takes me back to my childhood.- Yelp Review

Bailey's Landing Ice Cream

Indeed Bailey’s Landing is another dessert place. But since you'll most likely be on vacation - there is no shame in indulging. This place is clean and will surely satisfy your sweet tooth. Check out their awesome specials to see what day you should stop by. Stop in to cool down and treat yourself.
We usually don't make it over to Lakeview (spend most of our time near the islands), but we're glad we made the drive around the lake this time. The store is clean and well-maintained, and the couple who runs it were very friendly. The ice cream itself was tasty. This would be a great place to take the kids. - Yelp Review
Address: 250 E Lake Street, Lakeview, OH 43331
Padrone's Pizza is another great place near the lake to grab a pizza to go. What separates this shop from the other pizzerias is their sweet tomato sauce. If you like a thin crust pizza with a sweet sauce, you'll become a regular at this place. So come order a pizza and sit by the lake while you eat.
I love their pizza. Some people do not like pizza with a sweeter sauce, but i personally love it. Nice long slices also. I always enjoyed coming here since I was a kid, before it was Padrone's. - Yelp Review
