Travel and Leisure, a national publication, just named this small Central Ohio town as a top vacation destination in the United States. Any guesses which town it is?

Here are some hints: It’s not Worthington, it’s not German Village, and it’s not Delaware…

Still stuck?

The answer is Buckeye Lake, one of the premiere Ohio towns for unlimited water sports, summer parties, and classic American scenery.

Travel and Leisure gave Buckeye Lake this distinct honor thanks in part to the adorable cottages surrounding the lake that are available for rent and the Buckeye Lake walking and biking trails, amongst other things.

If you’d like to read more about why Buckeye Lake was chosen and how it stacks up against other small towns across the United States, read the full article here.
