PIT is nice for a short visit, but man you couldn't pay me to live here.

They have some pre-made in the fridge at Milky Way. It's not awesome.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio (slightly out-of-the way) has some thrilling roller coasters. Nice "beach line" along Lake Erie, as well.

I thought that Milky Way was pretty decent though the menu is downright overwhelming

Falafel and Pizza Fries were very solid
