COSHOCTON – In celebration of National Travel and Tourism Week, The Coshocton Visitors Bureau will join 90 attractions, visitor bureaus, restaurants, lodging, retail, and other tourism businesses exhibiting at Ohio Tourism Day on Wednesday, May 9, as proclaimed by Governor John R. Kasich. Hosted by TourismOhio, Tourism Day encourages visitors to plan their Ohio getaways by showcasing the Ohio experiences families and friends can enjoy. Ohio Tourism Day is a free event and will take place on the Ohio Statehouse West Plaza in Columbus.

“Ohio Tourism Day is a wonderful opportunity for the Coshocton CVB,” said Mindy Brems, executive director. “It’s exciting to be featuring Coshocton attractions at the Statehouse. We can reach potential travelers with information about the experiences we have available to share with their family and friends. We will be promoting Coshocton trails, but not the hiking variety,” said Brems. “Guests can come to Coshocton to experience the Three Rivers Wine Trail, Coshocton Crow Geotrail,  and the new Coshocton Antique and Unique Shopping Trail. It’s the perfect way to make your visit to Coshocton more than just a quick stop. Also joining us this year are Coshocton Village Inn & Suites and Pearl Valley Cheese.”

“Ohio Tourism Day is the perfect opportunity to Find It Here.” said Ohio Tourism Director, Matt MacLaren. “The weather is getting nice, school is almost out, and it is a great time to plan your next trip at Ohio.org!”

During Ohio Tourism Day, visitors can enjoy live music, see animals from the zoo up close, hop on a wave runner simulator, tap their feet along with Irish step dancers, take a trip to many of Ohio’s incredible destinations through virtual reality and more. The event will be emceed by Emmy award-winning TV personality Cameron Fontana. A full list of participating attractions and events is available at Ohio.org/TourismDay.

Ohio Tourism Day showcases the depth and diversity of Ohio’s travel offerings while providing a taste of the joy, togetherness and exhilaration they can find by traveling in Ohio.
