I LOVE to plan trips. In fact, sometimes I think that I may enjoy planning a trip more than actually taking the trip. Mr. O-P is from New Jersey so this means many trips east. Many, long trips DRIVING east. After ten years or so, this same trip can get pretty boring. A couple of years ago I decided to attempt to make the drive less monotonous by looking for another route and something interesting to see off of our usually beaten path. It was then that I stumbled upon Zoar, Ohio.
Zoar is a village in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. It was founded in 1817 by German religious dissenters called the Society of Separatists of Zoar. A former communal society, it features numerous German-style structures that have been restored and are part of the Zoar Village State Memorial. For a taste of Old-World charm in east-central Ohio, it is well worth a visit.
