When exploring a new city, many visitors' first stops are likely the same places that everyone goes. Though these spots, from historic landmarks and major music venues to must-try restaurants and theme parks, are popular tourist spots for a reason, sometimes one may want to visit a low-key attraction that will provide a much-needed break from the hustle and bustle of a metropolitan area.
Casago searched for destinations around the country that are worth a visit but still offer a peaceful experience compared to popular tourist-heavy locales. The site compiled a list of the "most peaceful" tourist attraction in each state, with The National Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche in St. Augustine, Florida earning the title of the most peaceful tourist spot in the entire country, with 41% of reviews using the world "peaceful."
According to the site, the most peaceful tourist spot in all of Ohio is the Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum in Cincinnati, established in 1845 and self-described as "hidden gem" in the city with more than 700 acres to explore, per its website. This beautiful locale has plenty of green space, ponds and stone bridges to enjoy a peaceful walk while reminiscing about lost loved ones.
