Located in America’s heartland, Ohio is home to the Buckeyes, rolling hills, a Lake Erie coastline, and the Allegheny and Appalachian mountain ranges. Ohio can be roughly broken down into 5 sub-regions: The flat agricultural land surrounding Toledo; the rolling foothills of the Allegheny Mountain range towards the shores of Lake Erie; the flat agricultural land surrounding the capital of Columbus; the hilly areas around Cincinnati and the Kentucky border; and the hilly, coal-mining country in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, rolling into Pennsylvania and West Virginia and including the Wayne National Forest.
Ohio has several major cities that offer travelers a variety of different things to see and do. You can attend the All American Soap Box Derby in Akron, check out the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, check out the largest historical district in the U.S. in Cincinnati, check out the Wright Brother’s home town of Dayton or visit the Toledo zoo.
Hotel options will vary from city to city across the state. Those looking for reliable chain hotel options, will find all the major hotel chains like Hilton, Holiday Inn and Super 8 in Ohio. For those looking to enjoy the outdoors in Ohio, you may want to consider staying at one of Ohio’s Resort Lodges (which offer outstanding locations and amenities) or even pitch a tent and camp in one of the many State Parks.
