Ohio is a Midwest state on Lake Erie (north); Ohio River (Seneca Native American for good or great river) forms south/southeast border with West Virginia and Kentucky (southwest). Pennsylvania is to east and Indiana is west with Michigan on northwest. Although Ohio is surrounded by 5 states and mostly landlocked, it has more than 5,000 natural or manmade lakes for a range of waterways from Lake Erie to the Ohio River, providing outdoor recreation such as boating, fishing, swimming, kayaking and more. Many lakes are within State Parks offering additional recreation such as camping, hiking, picnicking, and hunting. Some manmade lakes are shallower and freeze in winter for ice skating, ice fishing, snowmobiling.

Major cities with large metropolitan areas are Columbus, capital of Ohio and largest city located in the state’s center and site of Ohio State University, Columbus Art Museum, and Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum Collection. Cleveland, on Lake Erie in the northeast, is known for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Rhythm & Blues Music Hall of Fame, American Classical Music Hall of Fame & Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Playhouse Square (with 10 theaters), and the Cleveland Orchestra, one of America’s “Big Five.” Cleveland is the headquarters of the renowned Cleveland Clinic owned and operated by the non-profit Cleveland Clinic Foundation established in 1921. Cincinnati is on the Ohio River across from Kentucky in the southwest corner. The Cincinnati Art Museum showcases a comprehensive collection of over 100,000 works spanning 6,000 years of human history. Some other major cities are Toledo located near the Michigan border and Lake Erie; Dayton is located west of Columbus and north of Cincinnati; and Akron is south of Cleveland. Canton is the location of the Professional Football Hall of Fame. Wayne National Forest consists of 3 units of public land spread across 12 Ohio counties covering about 250,000 acres of Appalachian foothills in southeast Ohio and is the state’s only national forest. Picnicking and a wide spectrum of camping is available seasonally from May – September. Trails for OHVs (off highway vehicles) and horses are open mid-April to mid-December; hiking is permitted year-round.

Ohio’s Buckeye trees (also known as Horse Chestnut) became the state tree in 1953. The nut resembles the eye of a deer, hence the name. Unlike the unrelated Sweet Chestnut, the leaves, bark, and fruit (nut) of the Buckeye tree are extremely toxic to animals and people.

Ohio is also called the “Birthplace of Aviation” as officially declared by Congress in 2003 (instead of North Carolina) for a number of reasons; mainly, Dayton, Ohio was the hometown of aviation pioneers Wilbur and Orville Wright, brothers who were credited with inventing and flying the first controllable aircraft. The Wright brothers had a bicycle shop on the west side of Dayton where they did their aeronautical research, drafted design plans, and built early aircraft prototypes that were tested in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on the soft sands of the beach, in case of a hard landing. The 1905 Wright Flyer was the world’s first practical airplane; able to stay aloft and controllable—a design they patented. They also established the world’s first test flight facilities at Huffman Prairie northeast of Dayton, which is the current site of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, one of the largest air force bases in the US, spanning Greene and Montgomery counties in Ohio. Dayton is the site of the National Museum of the USAF and Ohio generated the most astronauts of any state in the union, including Neil Armstrong and John Glenn.

Ohio’s central location on the navigable Ohio River, along with its railroads, made the state strategically significant to the Union during the Civil War. Ohio contributed more soldiers per capita than any other state and included the Union’s 3 top generals—Ulysses S. Grant, William Tecumseh Sherman, and Philip Sheridan. Like neighboring Pennsylvania, source of the Ohio River, Ohio rapidly industrialized in the 19th century, adding a “second frontier” to its agricultural base. One of its first iron manufacturing plants with a Hopewell Furnace opened in 1804 in the east near Pennsylvania. By the mid-19th century, 48 blast furnaces were operational. The discovery of coal deposits accelerated development of Ohio’s steel industry and by 1853 Cleveland was the third largest iron and steel producer in the nation. And by 1892, Ohio ranked second largest steel-producing state after Pennsylvania.

The great depression of the 1930s hit Ohio hard and the state suffered heavy losses along with all manufacturing states at the close of the 20th century, but Ohio has since rebounded, especially in the 2010s by transitioning into advanced technology industries, dubbed the “third frontier” (agriculture – 1st frontier and industry – 2nd frontier). Ohio won the International Economic Development Council’s “Excellence in Economic Development Award” and was hailed as a national model of success. Ohio is also known for its excellent Universities/Colleges and High Schools. Ohio’s location proved an asset to its economic growth and expansion, linking the Northeast to the Midwest, with much cargo and business traffic passing through. Ohio has 312 miles of coastline on Lake Erie giving it many cargo ports (Cleveland, Toledo). Its southern border is the Ohio River, though most of the river itself belongs to Kentucky and West Virginia. Other significant rivers are Cuyahoga River, Great Miami River, Maumee River, Muskingum River, and Scioto River.

The Pioneer Route known as Main Market Route 3 in the early 20th century, was chosen to become part of historic Lincoln Highway, connecting New York City to San Francisco, linking many of Ohio’s towns and cities together greatly impacting development of the state. In 1926, Lincoln Highway became US Route 30 and the Historic National Road with 228 miles in Ohio became US Route 40 in the newly created federal numbered highway system. Ohio features a highly developed network of bicycle routes—many follow rail trails (Ohio to Erie Trail, US Bicycle Route 50). Ohio features long distance hiking trails such the Buckeye Trail, which is a 1,444-mile loop around the state, North Country Trail (longest of 11 National Scenic Trails), and the American Discovery Trail which is a system of recreational trails and roads that together form a “coast to coast route across the mid-tier of the United States.” Ohio’s Water Trails are Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) designated trails in partnership with local communities to promote awareness of public paddling access and safety. Water Trails are Blanchard River, Cuyahoga River Water Trail, East Sandusky Bay Water trail, Great Miami River Water Trail, Kokosing River Water Trail, Lake Erie Water Trail (Cuyahoga County), Lake Erie Islands Water Trails, and Mad River Water Trail.

Lake Erie is the premier lake to visit; it is the shallowest and warmest of the Great Lakes for enjoyable swimming and fishing for Lake Erie perch and walleye.
