Sandusky, Ohio, United States
Make sure to visit Cedar Point while you are there, go on the Rip Chord. If you can get 3 people to do it, it's only $15 a person. It's so much fun!

Put-in-Bay, Ohio, United States
Put-in-Bay is a wonderful place to visit from the Sandusky Bay area! I took a wonderful ferry ride there with a bunch of my friends, then rented bikes on the island of Put-in-Bay! Highly recommended spot to visit for anyone who happens to be in this area, ever! It's absolutely gorgeous...somewhat old fashioned, and the history culture are well preserved on the island. The dining is somewhat limited, but it's mostly local catch of seafood...and that happens to be great! The people of Put-in-Bay are EXTREMELY friendly...if you ever lose your way they will gladly point you in the right direction (although chances of that are slim as it's not a big island and if you have a map with you - which I always recommend - you won't get lost easy)! Also, if you need pointers to local sights - the Put-in-Bay-ers will happily show you the place they are very proud of! The marina is one of the great things to see there, so are multiple historic houses (more like mansions!) which have been on the island (and extremely well preserved) for a loooong time! Biking the island proved a great thing to do, instead of brining the car along on the ferry! This way I saw way more than I would have from the car, I got some exercise (there are some steep spots on the island, but not many), and the air on the island was wonderful! Overall - I highly recommend any sight seer, ferry island lover, or just about anyone traveling in the vicinity to visit Put-in-Bay! What a great place! Have fun!!!

Newark, Ohio, United States
Newark, OH is very beautiful and peaceful. within 5 minutes from the city you are in the country. There is less pollution there and many people feel so safe that they leave their personals unlocked- can you say the same about where you live? I know I can't

Toledo, Ohio, United States
Things to do downtown Toledo
Toledo is one of the cities that has been reviving its downtown in the past few years... successfully! There is the Mudhens baseball stadion for the sports fan, for the hungry lots of fun places to eat with certain cultural peculiarities: e.g. Tony Packos, Easy Street Café and several great restaurants at the Docks downtown (afterwards take a nice walk in the Owens Park along the river).
The Toledo Zoo is also quite nice and big (and features open-air concerts in its amphitheather in the summer), the Museum of Art (with a world-renowned glass exhibit) is also worth a visit. If you want to shop for some glass (which would make sense in the "Glass city" that Toledo is often called), I recommend the Libbey Factory Outlet also located downtown.

Fun at Lake Erie
Just one hour east from Toledo you'll find one of the largest and coolest amusement parks "Cedar Point" in Sandusky. They keep breaking world records with speed, height and inclination and just really crazy creative rides (a lot of them are built by Swiss companies!). My favorite is the "Raptor", which includes several loops and you ride with your legs hanging down. If you want to be thrilled, ride the Millenium Force (hold on to your head and neck!). Unfortunately, I did not get to ride all the funky new coasters built after 2002, but they look really cool (get a taste on the cedarpoint.com website). They have several water rides in the park, but if you need a real cool down there is also an entire waterpark "Soak City" right next to it or if the weather doesn't play along the indoor water park Castaway Bay.
Also fairly near are a few interesting Islands such as Put-in Bay and Kellys Island both with interesting history and beautiful nature to enjoy an easy vacation near the water.

Cleveland, Ohio, United States
Cleveland is the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum. A must see for any music fans. Of course home of the Browns and Indians for any sports fans. The city is also right on Lake Erie for plenty of recreational fun like charter boat fishing or a nice day of sailing.

Ohio Sports 
Cleveland, Ohio, United States
Cleveland Rocks, Clevelands what its made of. Not a bad city, the downtown was a bit of a ghost town in some places, the waterfront area near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is quite nice. Over buy Jacobs Field there are a few good Sports Bars and restaurants. Do not take advice on the train when to get off as we were given bad advice and had to walk thru one of the worst neighbourhoods I have ever seen. All in all had a great time there watching the 25th Anniversay Grand Prix of Cleveland.

Avoid Akron at all costs during the winter months. Way too cold and snowy for my taste!

Oberlin, Ohio, United States
College town, if you are a dirty hippie, an ultra-feminist, a lesbian, gay, worry about things like gender stereotypes and/or play an instrument really well this is the place for you. For some reason there are a few Republicans here. There is a well funded club for them, it's membership is approximately 10, quite a bit less than the gay socialist vegans club. I don't know shit about the town.

Ohio Economy 
Yellow Springs, Ohio, United States
Activities, Food Restaurants, its a very small town. South West of Columbus. The people are very laid back and a working class community. a regular public school and very interesting stores. such as antique shops and small space toy stores and a farm attraction called thomas' farm.and is also the birthplace of dave shepelle. antioch college is also located there. the sports that are popular in yellow springs are soccer, football, basketball, softball, swimming. Downtown is filled with family businesses and boutiques and a very old fashion feel. however the cost of living is high. On the upside the economy is very good. if you are the type of traveller who looks for old fashion town with a small amount of people that live close together that has a lot of agriculture then yellow springs Ohio is a good place to visit to take some photos.
