Halfway between the bigger cities of Cleveland and Columbus, Mansfield is rightly known as the Fun Center of Ohio. Grab a craft beer at Phoenix Brewing Company before catching a show at the 1,400-seater Renaissance Theatre. Ride the hand-carved merry-go-round at Richland Carrousel Park, then experience high-octane thrills at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. See biblical stories recreated in 300 waxworks at the BibleWalk museum or check out the State Reformatory, the Shawshank Redemption filming location modeled on a 19th-century German castle. Whatever you’re in town for, stay at one of the best hotels in Mansfield, Ohio – bookable with Culture Trip.
