One of the biggest things that Chillicothe is known for is our square, this is where all the magic happens, well I guess where it did happen! Preserving the integrity and character of our historic downtown is an important part of what they do around the square. It is full of mind-boggling murals (thanks to Kelly Poling) and restored and preserved old buildings.
Plus they added a park called Silver Moon Plaza where they have community events and even concerts at! A perfect place for a family to take a walk and go sightseeing! By now you’ve probably worked up quite the appetite, so just walk around the corner to the best place for lunch, Boji Stone 612 Washington St! DIRECTIONS
Ok, the next thing I’m about to talk about is irresistible!! MOVIE POPCORN!!! If you and your family happen to be around Chillicothe and are looking to have a memorable night! I have just the place to start! You can kick off your night by going and hitting the bowling alley and getting some awesome food at Fast Lanes and Jerseys Sports Bar & Grill!
Let’s just say you did everything on the top attractions tour up to this point! You could finish your night by staying in a 5-star hotel, with a pool and a hot tub!!
