A S H L A N D A welcome sign greets visitors to Ashland with the proclamation that the city is "The World Headquarters of Nice People." Groups can meet Ashland's friendly citizens by strolling through the northern Ohio city's well-kept downtown, where they'll find local shops, cafes and restaurants. From fresh-baked pies sold from roadside Amish wagons to the Candy and Nut Shoppe, visitors with a sweet tooth will have ample opportunities to indulge. Other stores that sell antiques, clothing, wine and gifts make for a pleasant afternoon for groups that desire a shopping break. G A H A N N A The air smells sweeter in Gahanna thanks to the fresh herbs and wildflowers that grow downtown. Gahanna celebrates its distinction as Herb Capital of Ohio with 45 culinary and shopping venues, herb gardens and eco-learning opportunities. Many herbal attractions are within walking distance of downtown along the Herbal Garden Walking Path. The trail starts at the Ohio Herb Education Center, where guests can schedule workshops on cooking with herbs and other herb-related topics. From there, groups can engage their senses in Creekside Park's herbal gar- den before browsing numerous local cafes, shops and other attractions along the route.
