Just in time for the holiday season, TourismOhio has launched the Holiday Lights Trail on “Ohio.org/Holidays,” featuring three Greater Akron venues: Deck The Hall at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, 37th annual Akron Children’s Hospital Holiday Tree Festival and Christmas in Peninsula.
“The Ohio Holiday Lights Trail is a fantastic way to help travelers find outstanding light displays and activities to enjoy with those who mean the most to them,” said Jim Mahon, Akron/Summit Convention & Visitors Bureau’s VP of Marketing & Brand Management. “We are thrilled that Akron/Summit County is part of TourismOhio’s Holidays In Ohio campaign by encouraging visitors to travel Ohio and share what makes our state special.”
Deck The Hall at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, 37th annual Akron Children’s Hospital Holiday Tree Festival and Christmas in Peninsula are three of 30 distinctive light displays across Ohio where visitors may enjoy millions of twinkling holiday lights.
