Johnstown, Ohio

 

Look no further than Johnstown for evidence that central Ohio’s rolling fields are more than corn and soybeans

Equestrian centers, vineyards and golf courses are just a few of the ways Johnstown is sharing its wide-open space. Stop downtown to peruse antique and artisan shops and sample a local microbrew before snapping a few photos of the Johnstown Opera House, one of only five in the state.

If you happen to plan your visit with Swapper’s Day, the village’s popular long-standing flea market, you’re sure to go home with a gem or two. Johnstown is also the western trailhead for the T.J. Evans bike trails: Hop on here to stroll past the ancient site where mastodon bones were found, and it’s a scenic 15-mile ride to Newark.
