Take the Ohio Turnpike to exit 118 and wonder to US 113 and that will take you right through downtown Millan. Milan Ohio that is.
Milan, is a small town that was once the busiest grain port in the nation, that was back in 1867 until the flood came and effectively wiped the town off the map. In 1965 it was put back on the map as a tourist destination to visit the home of one of America’s greatest inventors; Thomas Alva Edison.
After you take a guided tour of the Edison house, stroll down the country road to their neighbors’ house, the banker and industrialist J.C Lockwood who helped put Milan on the map by building a canal that would allow grain to be transported to the ships in Lake Erie.
While driving into Milan on US113 you will come to the center of town and at the intersection of North Center St and East Church St
you will find the quaint little local museum of Milan, showcasing all of the local history.
When visiting Milan, plan on staying at the Angel Welcome bed and breakfast and be sure to ask for Barb’s famous German Apple Pancake, you won’t be disappointed after the 15 minute bake time.
Milan is situated between the vacationing water destination of Sandusky to the North, and the drag racing track in Norwalk to the South. When visiting either I suggest staying at the waterpark resort of The Kalihari, but make sure you bring your bathing suit.
After drying off from relaxing in the lazy river, get ready for some fast paced action at the Summit NHRA drag racing track in nearby Norwalk where you can watch cars race down the track at 300 miles an hour, but make sure you remember to put your earplugs in, because the jet fueled cars are not just fast, they are also very loud!
