It is the home of Patti at Crystal Rose Cottage.
It is the county seat for Muskingum County and sets on the banks of the Muskingum River.
It is an unusual place to try to drive. I stayed at the new Holiday Inn Express. It's a beautiful hotel sitting atop a hill overlooking downtown. The problem? I couldn't figure out how to get to it. I could see it, but could not for the life of me figure out how to get to it.
I tried to follow my Google directions, but I didn't arrive at the hotel. I stopped for dinner at Wendy's and asked how to get there. I had three different people tell me different ways.
I had to chuckle because one of the teens said to another, I'm trying to tell her how to get to Mike's house. I interjected, I'm trying to get to Holiday Inn Express. My understanding is that Mike's house is the only house on that road.
I left Wendy's even more confused. I drove around a few moments and finally found the drive leading up the hill. Sure enough, there was Mike's house to the right of the hotel. I felt better the next day when all my co-workers had the same difficulty and they had GPS.
Speaking of confusing directions, it is also the home of the Y-bridge. The historic Y-bridge spans the confluence of the Licking and Muskingum Rivers in downtown Zanesville. It has been re-built several times since its first construction in 1814.
Although it is a challenge to navigate, it is a beautiful city and the people were so friendly. If you ever visit and stay at the Holiday Inn Express, be sure to wave at Mike's house.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
