What part of Ohio? In or around what city?
I grew up in a small town in northwest Ohio, also lived in Dayton and Cincinnati (both in southwest Ohio), and my husband is from Cleveland.
Ohio in general is very pretty. Changing of seasons is beautiful. . .warm summers, beautiful leaves in fall, very cold winters, and unpredictable springtime. Generally speaking, the people are good, nice, and easy going.
Cedar Point is an amusement park in northern Ohio that we went to a lot as kids and teens. Kings Island is another amusement park that is in Cincinnati. Both are a lot of fun for all ages.
Ohio is home to Ohio State University - Go Buckeyes! Great school in Columbus (the state capital).
In to horses? University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio has one of the greatest Equestrian programs in the nation. Also Quarter Horse Congress, the biggest breed horse show in the United States is held in Columbus every October.
My husband grew up in downtown Cleveland - probably one of the "rougher" areas of the state, but great, big city overall with lots to do. "The Flats" are there - a big area full of bars and night clubs, great for the younger crowd. Cleveland is also home to the Cleveland Indian baseball team and Cleveland Browns football team.
Feel free to email me if there is anything else you'd like to know.
I lived in Ohio for 22 years. Grew up and graduated from college there.
