The Sweetheart Dinner at Pine Tree Barn just gets better each year. This was our tenth year that we have attended this event and always walk away looking forward to next year's dinner. There were ten in our party and our service was excellent. With music and candlelight and superb food the evening was so very enjoyable. Dinner was limited to three entrees but each one was outstanding. Their signature dessert is the raspberry pie but the other desserts were just as pleasing. They offer several seatings which easily fits into your schedule. Their Granary Restaurant is open each day for lunch and the same superb food is offered and is always delicious. And don't leave without a lemon muffin.

Ohio Light Opera

Reviewed By j25aj - Cleveland, Ohio

Being only an hour away, Wooster summer Light Opera is a must.Once again enjoyed the venue-The Freelander Theter and the wonderful performance The live orchestra is an added treat. The parking was a bit difficult as they had a Symposium week in progress but the 2 performances we attended were most enjoyable. We also stayed overnight at a Boutique hotel and enjoyed the restaurants and antique shops.

We did not allow ourselves enough time to enjoy everything this place has to offer! There's so much to do! - 2 corn mazes, a hayride, slides, karts, trampoline, and more. We successfully conquered the mystery maze, after getting turned around a time or two. We didn't have enough time to do all of the trivia and get all of the stamps in the ohio maze. Some annoying kids (i hope they were kids and not adults who should know better) had gone thru and ripped off some of the signs in the ohio maze. I felt bad for the owner. She was very apologetic. Allow about half a day here, if not longer, to really enjoy everything!

Wooster Memorial Park

Reviewed By robi32 - akron oh

The city obviously loves this park, as they do a great job with it. The trails are well maintained and marked and the variable terrain is nice since they are all small trails that loop together. Pretty little streams run throughout the park, you will probably get wet feet crossing them if you don't have waterproof shoes. I saw some deer, birds and squirrels. Other reviewers reference 8 miles of trails, seemed more like six to me, but I may have missed sections of some as they were out of maps so I was working from a cell phone picture of one on the bulletin board. Another review mentioned trash and disrepair. I didn't see a single piece of trash anywhere and the bridges were all in good shape .

Blue Barn Winery

Blue Barn Winery is located in a beautifully restored 19th century barn in the rolling hills of Wayne County, Ohio. Our 75-acre horse farm is home to our family and our rescued donkeys, horses, cats and dogs. We close for the Winter months and re-open each year on Earth Day (mid-April). As scientists and activists, our passion is protecting and preserving the environment. Our normal days of operation are Friday (2-8pm), Saturday (noon-8pm), and Sunday (1-5pm). We generally have live music every Saturday evening. We also host numerous fundraisers throughout the year for the local community.

Blue Barn Winery is fairly new to the area but it is well worth a trip. Last Saturday night they provided a Frank Sinatra Night and it was very entertaining and interesting. Their wine is very reasonable and we like it - I believe two whites and two reds. We prefer the "Reserve". The owners are personable and willing to please. Our story begins several years ago when we went there in the Fall to buy some Mums. Each year since we return and inquire about when their winery will be open. Finally, this year it happened and they have done a magnificent job in renovating the Blue Barn. We have been their several times now and would recommend it highly.

Troutman Vineyards

Reviewed By Sally S - Wadsworth, Ohio

We stopped at this winery on a recent local tour of the same. Looked like it was a popular spot, lots of cars in the driveway. The building seemed to be a farm type building complete with young goats in a pen that I had to go see and pet. The wines were fine. I enjoyed a dry red that was actually made at their sister winery, Wolf Creek, closer to where we live. A nice little ride

Secrest Arboretum

Reviewed By Paul S - Marion

The Secrist Arboretum is a fine and free attraction on the Wooster agricultural campus complex just south of hwy 30 and immediately west of hwy 250. Most people on southbound 250 whiz right on by and don't even notice the sign for the Secrist Arboretum just off the shoulder of the road. That's too bad because the arboretum has a network of roads and trails that is worth a short detour off the highway. The orientation center has restrooms available during the hours it is open. The grounds themselves are open daily dawn to dusk. Where else in Ohio can you see a bald cypress, a redwood grove, and a magnolia tree on the wrong side of the Mason Dixon line?

Killbuck Marsh Wildlife Area

Reviewed By Paul S - Marion

Killbuck Marsh was probsbly viewed as an obstacle to early settlers and farmers who turned the rest of the region into a thriving agricutural area. Today it remains a vast undeveloped swath and a refuge for wildlife including trumpeter swans. The state wildlife area is nearly 6000 acres while the marsh itself extends over a much larger area. You can view it from your car by driving south of wooster along nwy 83, south and west to Killbuck along hwy 62, then north through Shreve on hwys 60 and 754, then back to Wooster on 226.Even if you don't see a swan that is still a very scenic drive and there are lots of attractions in the towns along the way. There are no amenities within the refuge and the acreage is not accessible, although there are a couple of rough hiking trails if you want to get out of the car and explore. They can be found west of hwy 83 off Clark Road and Harrison Road. Make sure you have a good map as many roads deadend or disappear into the wetlands.

Took my grandson to try skating since I loved to skate as a teen. We had fun and everyone was ver helpful.
You can also go to semi pro hockey games, watch local hockey teams[adults], and just have fun skating. Ask locals why the rink was built. Interesting story and typical of Wooster.

This is a really neat store in downtown Wooster. Profits benefit Hospice. Items are donated from various sources. They have really unique items along with typical donation items. Kind of like an upscale Goodwill store with a lot of antiques.
