Welcome to Ohio

With Lake Erie to the north, the Ohio River to the south, and scenic lakes and rivers in between, Ohio is the perfect state for every form of freshwater recreation. The parks are ideal for hiking and bird watching, as well as cross-country skiing. Columbus, the state capitol, is the state’s largest city and holds the nation’s largest university, Ohio State. Visit the historic German Village with the adjacent Brewery District and celebrate the city’s German heritage. Cincinnati’s attractions include the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the Cincinnati Reds Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. In the heart of Cleveland, visit "The Flats," home to over 50 fine restaurants and nightspots. Whatever you prefer, Ohio has a friendly balance that you’re sure to enjoy.
