FREMONT — Summer is just around the corner, and everyone is ready to travel.

To help spur tourism in Sandusky County, the Sandusky County Visitors Bureau partnered with Ohio. Find It Here, and joined nearly 100 other attractions from across the state for the 2022 Ohio Tourism Day, held on May 11 at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. About 1,000 people, looking to make summer plans, attended the event.

Every year, Ohio Tourism Day celebrates Ohio’s tourism industry and provides the opportunity for consumers to plan their Ohio vacations while visiting with tourism destinations and attractions throughout the state. Sandusky County Visitors Bureau set up a display promoting the Sandusky County Historic Jail & Dungeon Tours along with our many other attractions, including the Rutherford B Hayes Presidential Library and Museums, our Historic Barn Mural Trail and promoted the many events planned in our communities in 2022. Our goal was to talk to potential visitors to Sandusky County eager to learn more about all the exciting things to do in the area.

“Given the current economy and high cost of fuel this year we believe there is going to be a big demand for day trips or Staycations this year,” said David Thornbury, of the Visitors Bureau. “Our team met with dozens of potential first-time visitors as well as individuals and families who plan to take a trip to Sandusky County, but also spend time at nearby restaurants, retailers, hotels and other attractions.”

Sandusky County is filled with many exciting trip ideas and our website has lots of upcoming events and festivals listed on our website. For information, visit

Ohio. Find It Here has a website,, and an annual travel guide that both provide information about attractions, events and destinations all around Ohio, not to mention inspiration for planning day trips, weekend getaways and long vacations in all regions of the state.
