" McDonald's restaurants are a stop for many Ohio travelers, and working with McDonald's and Coca-Cola allows us to provide those travelers with exclusive deals to help them stretch their travel budgets and maybe stay an extra night," said Interim State Tourism Director Pat Barker. "This program also is launching at a perfect time of year to help stimulate some early Ohio travel planning."

Travelers can visit to find a full list of discounts and deals, as well as a list of nearly 400 participating McDonald's locations. To receive the discount, travelers should follow directions on the website for each offer and present the clean, empty cup upon arrival at participating attractions, including:

"Our partnership with TourismOhio and Coca-Cola is an extension of our commitment to providing a great overall experience for our customers," said Shirley Rogers-Reece, vice president and general manager, McDonald's Ohio Region. "In addition to quality food and beverages, this promotion allows McDonald's to provide our guests with an added value they won't find at other restaurants."

"As a long-time partner of McDonald's, the Discover Ohio To Go partnership offers a great opportunity for Coca-Cola to provide ice-cold refreshment to on-the-go road trippers this spring and summer," said Pete Maguire, Coca-Cola Business Development Director. "We're proud to support TourismOhio and create moments of happiness for Ohio travelers this year."

Specially marked "Discover Ohio To Go" cups are available at participating McDonald's locations while supplies last in Greater Cincinnati, Central Ohio, Dayton/Miami Valley, Lima and Toledo/ Northwest Ohio.
