The best vacations often combine beauty, relaxation and fun. Our family thinks Lakeside, Ohio fits the bill perfectly. It has been our long-standing tradition to be there for the annual Fourth of July festivities. But a huge part of my enjoyment comes from visiting the non-stop flower displays generously sprinkled across the grounds. Lakeside's lakefront has been declared as the "Most Beautiful Mile" in Ohio.
