Zipping down to Ohio
As a bit of an adventure seeker, I must admit that I love a spot of ziplining.

Flying through the trees at more than 100 metres above the ground, it's exhilarating.

So if you're planning some backpacker travel around Ohio this summer, why not check out Ozone Zipline Adventures in Warren County.

Part of YMCA Camp Kern, it is opening on July 1st - with the date having been pushed back so they can make some additions.

The zipline tour is the largest in the Midwest, includes seven sky bridges and lasts between two and three hours - so it could be a great way to spend an afternoon if you're staying in hostels in the area.

But if you do prefer to keep your feet on the ground, you might want to check out next week's Street Fair in Yellow Springs, where street performers and international cuisine are the main attractions.
