The summer is always full of surprise invites and events and this summer proved to be no different. My girlfriend posted that she had two tickets to attend the #VintageOhioWineFestival and was looking for someone to use her tickets. I have never been to the event before and inquired immediately. My husband and I have toured a few wineries before and even visited one on our honeymoon so this was perfect for us.
There were hundreds of people in attendance enjoying the weather, food, music and drinks. We received a card that listed the available vendors serving wine and each tent offered 6 samplings. There were over 20 tents so we were in for a treat! We started at the closest tent and made our way around the grounds until sunset. I prefer sweet dessert wine but found a few semi-sweet and dry wines that I enjoyed as well. My husband tried a bit of everything with few complaints. We both agreed on a few selections and purchased several bottles before we left.
The wine was fabulous for the grown ups but there was music, vendors selling all types of items and carnival rides for the whole family to enjoy. We split a funnel cake and enjoyed a dessert wine (of course) with it. This year marked the 25th anniversary of the #VintageOhioWineFestival.

On our way to our second vacation destination of the summer, we passed an interesting museum in Spartanburg, SC. It was the @BMW Zentrum Museum! The sleek white building stood out in the otherwise green landscape. The museum is free and houses some very unique pieces of luxury vehicles.
There were cars from the 1930s up to 2018. There were motorcycles, race cars and even model cars. My favorite car in the museum was a micro car with a single cylinder engine! We were able to sit in a couple of cars as well and there was café and shop on the premises as well. We didn't grab a bite to eat but everyone selected an items to take home as a memento. If you are ever in the area and have time to check out some exclusive cars then stop by.
