The Best Things to do Around Baltimore, Ohio
Let your inner child (and real children if you have them) roam free in Baltimore, Ohio.
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.
Baltimore is a quaint town and a great place to raise a family. If you’re interested in living in Baltimore or know you’re going to be traveling there and are looking for some cool ways to spend your time, HER realtors has got ya covered with this guide.
Schaffner’s Drive In
During warmer months, make sure you stop by Schaffner’s Drive In, an old school ice cream shop that’s been one of the highest rated ice cream joints since they were established in the 50s. Walk inside to order soft serve (I hear the peanut butter flavor is a must-try), drinks, or hot food like a cheeseburger. They even have gluten-free and low-fat options so every stomach can get a taste. The Drive In has lovely patio seating and great food for low prices so you can enjoy a warm weather treat any time you want!

Ohio Glass Museum
In this museum, Ohio’s history of glassmaking comes to life. Go on a tour of the exhibitions and check out their movie, “Born of Fire” to learn their story. Each display features unique glass creations from collectors and artists in the local, surrounding areas, and even out-of-state.
Also be sure to visit the “Glass Studio” where they perform glass blowing demonstrations during regular museum hours. Interested in getting a more hands-on experience with creating glass art? You can schedule a hot glass class to learn the craft, and even forge a piece of your own!
Victoria Opera House
Once upon a time, the Victoria Opera House was built to be the venue for silent films, vaudeville shows, lectures, and religious events. Although for a while it was closed down, in present day it’s once again a focal point for the community. It has been undergoing restoration processes since 2011. Plans for the future include having screen and stage productions, conferences, weddings, recitals, after school activities, art installations, and more.
Currently, the opera house hosts different events, like craft beer and wine tastings, or live music. You can check out the monthly activities on their website. Even if you don’t plan on going to one of the events, you should still drive by just to see the 3 story italianate structure.
Buckeye Lake State Park
Buckeye Lake is Ohio's oldest state park. It has long been a popular vacation spot for families and today offers endless water-related recreational opportunities including swimming, skiing, boating, and fishing. It’s a great place to go on a picnic then explore the trails with your family or friends! During the winter, you can enjoy ice skating, cross country skiing, ice fishing, and ice boating.
Pigeon Roost Farm
During the fall season, Pigeon Roost Farm is a place you’re going to want to visit. They celebrate fall hard and host a ton of activities like wagon rides, face painting, and arts and crafts. Their biggest event, PumpkinFest, occurs during September through the end of October. It’s basically a month of good food and family fun just waiting to happen. Seriously, they have giant slides, mazes, forts, and fantastic displays of pumpkins. You’re going to want to take your kids to this, and if you don’t have kids, you’re going to want to take the kid in you to this!
