REAL New Year's-2013 plans?

Just wondered if there was anything going on for New Year's Eve. My boyfriend and I aren't big partiers or drinkers, but we want to go somewhere different and get out of town. I can't seem to found ferry service that travels in the winter nor anything online about events. Are there any?

You could check out state lodges. Especially if you like hiking, Mohican State Park Lodge would be good, and also would offer Malabar Farm State Park. See Mohican region here.


Other possibilities might include Niagara Falls, Pittsburgh, or German Village in Columbus.


Locally, there is Punderson State Park Lodge, with access to Geauga County Amish country, Holden Arboretum, etc.

The ferry stops running when the lake ices over in the winter. The two options after that are to either charter an air boat or an airplane. Do you know someone on the island that you are visiting and do you have a place to stay? The reason I ask is because PIB pretty much closes (for tourists) on Halloween. There is literally nothing to do there in the winter unless you know folks on the island. Just don't want you to get there and expect sun and crowds and bars open! I would recommend Cleveland or Erie for winter getaways in the area. Happy New Year!
