The best way to explore a new place is by bike, unless that place is underwater or in the sky. This land is your land with this Groupon.

Tours take place at noon on Saturdays and last 1–3 hours, depending on speed. Cyclists bring their own bikes and helmets and trek 14 miles, which includes paved and dirt roads, three bridges, and some short, steep climbs. Groups are followed by a car that allows for breaks and assistance, and tours stop twice for snacks and water, in addition to stops to look at the scenic Conneaut Creek, a waterfall, and other scenic, countryside views.
Tarsitano's Artisan Winery
Tarsitano's Artisan Winery used to be a dairy farm. "But I would rather squeeze grapes than cows, so I started a winery," Ken Tarsitano says. This isn't the only reason Ken turned his 17 acres—which has been in his family for five generations—into a vineyard. His grandfather, Michael Tarsitano, "always had something bubbling away in his cellar," and it was Grandpa's ability to transform elderberries, apples, and even dandelions into wine that inspired Ken.
Today, Ken is the owner, vineyard manager, and winemaker at his eponymous winery and vineyard, whose 25 grape varieties have been organic since its 1998 inception. Wine isn't the only thing visitors dine on here: winery goers savor flatbreads and cheese plates. Tarsitano's Artisan Winery even hosts events, such as moon-viewing parties, where guests gather to launch sky lanterns in the light of a waxing moon.
If you are anywhere near here and you like wine and food you must stop.Reviewer, 10/17/12
