The Ohio State University Extension Office of Highland County and the Visitors Bureau of Highland County partnered to develop and implement an interactive experience for the Tourism Ohio Day on the Ohio Statehouse lawn on May 8, 2019.
Tourism Ohio Day is an annual event held in Columbus that highlights locations for visitors and residents to plan Ohio vacations. Annually there are more than 100 booths displayed on the statehouse lawn.
The Extension Office helped develop a virtual reality experience highlighting locations to eat, play, and stay in Highland County. The virtual reality experience was shown at the Tourism Ohio Day and is also available below through YouTube.

For more information about Tourism Ohio Day, the virtual reality experience, or any of the upcoming Extension programs, contact the Highland County Extension Office at 937-393-1918.
