It probably won’t surprise you to learn that the car lovers who work here at Statewide Ford Lincoln have spent plenty of time cruising the roads to make the most of a free afternoon. What might surprise you if you’ve been staring at the same commute day in and day out, though, is just how exciting many of Ohio’s roadways can be!
Now that spring is in the air, it’s the perfect time for you to branch out, discover near routes, and enjoy the drive! If you’re not sure where to start, be sure to check out the top picks from the team at our Delphos area Ford dealership.
Accommodation Line Scenic Byway
Just a few hours south of Delphos, the Accommodation Line Scenic Byway memorializes the early 19th century stagecoach route of the Accommodation Line. The route spans from Spring Valley to Waynesville, making it the perfect destination for your next day trip.
You’ll find a number of historic towns and state parks along the way, adding a nice variety to the sprawling, green landscape. In Waynesville, you’ll have the chance to enjoy self-guided tours of historic buildings, festivals throughout the year, and plenty of shopping.
Heritage Corridors of Bath
Composed of several different rural roads that roll through hills and fields, the Heritage Corridors of Bath are a fan favorite for the team at our Ford dealer serving Delphos. The network of roads works its way through a number of exclusive areas, including natural preserves that are home to some of Ohio’s rarest plant life.
If you’re looking to make a true road trip out of your drive, this is a great place to start. You’ll find yourself just a stone’s throw south of Cleveland and the coast of Lake Erie, so there’s plenty to love!
Historic National Road
Our list wouldn’t be complete, of course, without mentioning this monumental byway! Defined by modern day Route 40, the National Road was commissioned by Congress in the early 1800s and ran from Maryland to Illinois, passing through our beautiful home state along the way.
A road trip lover’s delight, the National Road spans several states and includes original bridges and historic landmarks along the way. Museums and attractions along the way make it easy to spend several days soaking it all in!
Whether you’re headed out for a week-long road trip or a leisurely Sunday drive, the important thing is to take it all in and to enjoy the ride.
