Peebles, Seaman, Manchester, West Union, and Lynx Professional Review and Guide
"Adams County is the kind of place where someone can tell you to turn left at a certain hill and go right at stand of trees, and you’ll locate your destination. The region consists of several small towns and rural areas amid mostly untouched, gently rolling land. Some might call it Amish Lite: About seventy Old Order families can be found in the villages of Unity and Harshaville, which are so minute they fail to appear on a conventional map (they’re in the Wheat Ridge area near West Union). So you’ll need to watch for buggies and cap the camera, unless permission is obtained.
The locale also offers a bounty of outdoor options, including sacred Indian grounds, preserves, prairies, wildlife refuges, and state forests. Quality shopping, dining, and bed-and-breakfasts can also be found. No bright lights, big city, but a great place to commune with nature and recharge. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Columbus. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
