Ten Reasons You Need a Hocking Hills Winter Getaway

Old man winter seems to have arrived already! With the holiday season upon us, don’t skip out on giving yourself a gift! In fact, we’re highlighting the top 10 reasons you need a Hocking Hills winter getaway.

Time away from work

Step away and clear your mind. You’ll be a better manager or employee when you return to work.

Time to decompress 

Put your new planner to good use and fill it up for more fun things to do. Shoot for one fun activity a month!

Reconnect with Nature

There are numerous options for hiking with walking trails and gorges to explore. Or, just try sitting on a bench and watching the snowfall; the cold can actually feel stimulating.

Time away from the kids

Everyone loves their kiddos, but time away makes for better parenting.

Pamper yourself

Enough said! It never gets old!

Reconnect with your honey

Spend quality time with your significant other. One-on-one time never gets old.

Breakaway from the day-to-day grind

It’s good to break the daily routine and it can improve your focus and your outlook.

Put the car in park

Driving in the snow or on the ice isn’t anyone’s favorite part of winter. Save mileage (and gas) and skip driving for a few days; stretch your legs with a brisk walk instead.

Binge-watch movies

Old classics or “girly” flicks are best enjoyed without distractions and “to-do” lists nudging you to finish.

Vow renewal 

It seems like a romantic gesture any time, but winter is quieter and less crowded with breathtaking scenery too.


Between work, family, exercise, and chores, it can be very easy to forget about the simple things that fulfill us. When you take time for yourself, you’re more likely to recognize what surrounds you. So, rediscover the beauty of relaxation with a Hocking Hills winter getaway at Glenlaurel.
