Head to Ohio, known as the Buckeye State and you can discover the lighthouse-dotted coastline or plunge to the depths of Lake Erie in search of shipwrecks. The Lake Erie Islands are also the place to go for a really relaxing break - perfect for fishing, boating, hiking, birding, wine tasting or just getting away from it all. Throughout the state there is plenty to see and do as Ohio is home to numerous ‘one and only’ destinations including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum; the National Inventors Hall of Fame; the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, the birthplace of professional football; the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, the world’s largest aviation museum; and the world’s largest Amish population. Ohio’s world-record-holding theme parks offer their share of exhilaration and excitement too with some of the tallest, fastest coasters and rides on the planet. Among those worth making a date with are Cedar Point Amusement Park, Kings Island and Geauga Lake and Wildwater Kingdom. No trip to Ohio would be complete without visiting one of the Buckeye State’s metropolises. Ohio’s big cities, such as the state capital, Colombus, garner attention for their nightlife and arts" attractions as well as for the wide range of shopping opportunities on offer.
