Many people consider Ohio one of the most beautiful places in the world.

If you want a representation of the entire United States in one state you would get the the 7th largest state in the union, The State of Ohio. It's known in the U.S. to be the Microcosm of America. Ohio is a multi-regional, cultural and geographical crossroads, with elements of the Midwest, Northeast, Appalachia, and the South.

Great Lakes to the north, green fields throughout the countryside, and rolling hills south onto the Ohio river are all beautiful. This state has lots to offer if you are open to looking around for the hidden wonders. You can also try visiting the stock attractions: river towns, Amish markets, indigenous heritage sites, historical areas and state parks, you can also explore 'really progressive' towns like Columbus, Athens or Yellow Springs. The north coast and the quaint island of Put-in-bay host vineyards and bed and breakfast's as well as a lively bar and restaurant district. Ohio has alot of amusement parks. Cedar Point in Sandusky contains one of the best roller coaster parks in the world and is one of the biggest international tourist attractions. The Rock n' Roll Hall of fame and Indian burial grounds are other big attractions.

Unlike most states Ohio has not one but five fairly large urban cities with plenty to do; Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, and Dayton each has its own unique flavor. Another great thing about Ohio is that 50% of the United States population lives within a 500 mile radius of the state.

Along with being the birthplace of aviation, Ohio is also known as the mother of presidents, an astonishing 7 U.S. presidents were from the Buckeye State and all have memorials here. Thanks to its size and independent minded residents, Ohio usually has the dubious distiction of being the state called upon to solve disputes in national elections.
