As one of Ohio’s most beloved and most visited destinations, Hocking Hills invites visitors to enjoy a slower pace while surrounded by some of Ohio’s best landscapes. Although visitors flock to this region to view gorgeous scenery and to enjoy an assortment of outdoor activities, the area’s food scene has become an attraction of itself. To showcase the region’s enticing food scene, the fourth annual Hocking Hills Comfort Food Cruise welcomes foodies to indulge in the flavors of the region!
