This week we head southeast to Barnesville, Ohio to visit not only the biggest longhorn cattle ranch in Ohio but the whole eastern US. The best part is that you can tour the ranch too. We also stop at one of my favorite eating spots in southeast Ohio, Mehlman’s Cafeteria in St. Clairsville. So saddle up and join us on this week’s One Tank Trip
Kennywood Amusement Park is near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Its been around for over a century and mixes many historic rides with new thrills and adventures. When I made this visit several years ago they had just released one of the tallest chair drop rides in the world. Don’t forget that the new book “The Best of One Tank Trips” is now available in bookstores and other shops or can be ordered online here on www.OneTankTrips.com
Buffalo New York is home to not only the largest warship on the great lakes, but the largest collection of warships.
Naval Park is located on the Buffalo Waterfront. It has been a major attraction for many years, still a great place to visit as you can see from todays Classic One Tank Trip.
Did you know that Youngstown, Ohio is home to the second-largest park in the United States that is inside the city limits of a major town. Mill Creek Park, is second to Central Park in New York City in size. Mill Creek is also Ohio’s oldest metropark. Hit the play button and join us on our adventure today to Youngstown for a look at the park and a treat at my favorite ice cream stand.
Its a unusual way to explore a city, but several communities are using these World War II amphibious vehicles as a Tour boat/bus to show off their town. Several years ago we took one of the first rides when the DUKW came to Dayton. Jump aboard and come along.
Just a reminder our new book “The Best of One Tank Trips” is now available in Northeast Ohio bookstores, Acme and Fishers stores in Akron and Canton, and online from Amazon.com. Autographed copies are available here.
Over the years many people have asked the question “What is my favorite trip?”
As I point out in “The Best of One Tank Trips” I have many favorites. But, the one that always got my adrenaline going the most was the Niagara Whirlpool Jet Boat ride. It takes you up the Niagara river to the Devils Hole Rapids, and across the top of the giant whirlpool just downriver from Niagara Falls.
Our trip this week is a repeat of a story we did a couple of years ago. A good friend, former US Senator, Ohio Governor, Cleveland Mayor, George Voinovich, agreed to join us as we filmed a One Tank Trips to Marietta, Ohio. George, his wife, Janet and two of their Granddaughters met us for a day-long tour of the riverboat city. As you probably are aware, Senator Voinovich passed away this month. This was our tribute to a man who did so much for Ohio tourism and was a friend.
