Nestled in the Midwest region of the United States, Ohio is bordered by Lake Erie to the north, the Ohio River to the south, and the states of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, all of which combine to create landscape which varies from glacier planes in the northwestern parts of the state, to the Allegheny and Appalachian mountain ranges in the eastern regions of the state. With plenty of state parks, the Wayne National Forest, Lake Erie, the Ohio River, the North Coast Beaches, and cities like Cleveland, Cincinnati, Newark, and Columbus, Ohio is a state of great diversity, and one of great adventure just waiting for you to experience.
Ohio can be broken down into five major regions, each of which has its own unique advantages. The agricultural portion of the state is around Toledo in the northwestern section, while the northeastern is known as the Greater Cleveland portion of the state, with Lake Erie and the rolling hills and gently forested slopes of the Allegheny Mountains further north. The middle of the state is more agricultural in nature, while the southwest portion is rolling hills around the Ohio River and Cincinnati, down into Kentucky. The southeastern portion of the state is probably the most rugged, with the Wayne National Forest, the Appalachian Mountains, and plenty of coal-mining operations and history in the foothills.
Cincinnati boasts the largest National Historic District in the United States, and was the first boomtown in U.S. history. Between Cincinnati and Cleveland, not to mention the various other cities like Toledo and Akron, Ohio offers a unique look at Midwestern culture and history, while the rest of the state offers an up-close-and-personal view of some of the best natural landscapes that America has to offer.
