TRAVEL GUIDE: OHIO

A visit to Ohio might include a stop at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland or a night on the town in one of the state’s two other metropolises, Cincinnati and Columbus. But Ohio has more to offer than just its cities; it is also home to the country’s largest Amish settlement and dozens of Native American and Civil War historical sites. Hiking, hunting and birding are also popular activities throughout the state known for its many lakes and rivers.
