Hoover dam in Ohio? This was the first thing that came to my mind while we were searching for a place to spend our last day in Ohio. We were visiting friends. After parking the car, when I saw the stairs to the dam, I said I will stay here while you all go up and enjoy. I am afraid of heights and just looking at them gave me palpitations. But the others wouldn't let me be and once I started the climb, it wasn't bad. And when I got to the top, I was glad. The view is beautiful. The lake created by the reservoir goes for miles with lots of boats bobbing up and down and activities galore for families and loners alike. You can walk, hike, run, ride a bike or just play in the water. Lots of paths to get to the lake. The kids 2 and 3 year olds enjoyed seeing the ducks frolicking in the water, the boats etc.The main concern I have about the dam is the small openings near the rails. A kid can fall through the opening. I know the openings are there for a reason, but you have to be extra careful if you have a very curious child as mine.
