After crossing into Ohio i headed east to Marietta. I have been to this area before. Back in 99 I spent a few days here for an HSTA rally in Marietta. Back then I was mostly interested in riding as many curvy roads as I could and as fast as possible. I was riding a new SV650 back then. I still enjoy riding as many curvy roads as possible but I have slowed down a little and also I wanted to take the time see some of the sights in the area. In this case I was interested in checking out old historic downtown Marietta. As I entered Marietta I saw a visitor information center and stopped and talked to the people there. They gave me some info on downtown Marietta and off I went. I found a place to park, put my helmet and jacket into my tail trunk, and walked down to the Ohio River.



One of the places they had recommended seeing was the Lafayette Hotel.



Unlike most businesses which discourage non customers from using their restrooms, the Lafayette has a sign saying public restrooms available in the hotel. So i went in and checked the place out.

Then i walked around taking more pics.
