I second everything above! But don't forget the Wright Brothers!

Oh and we're the only state without a state flag. We have a state pennant!

Let's not forget Walleye fishing on lake Erie in the summer time. It just don't get any better.

I love it here in Ohio.

Can't forget those Bengals, worst team in the world. Oh yeah!

Cleveland, it's like Detroit without the glitz.

Did you know that in Zanesville there is a Y shaped bridge? It is the only place in the world where you can cross a bridge and stay on the same side of a river.

Did you ever see the Simpsons episode where Homer goes on tour with the hulabalooza? At one point the bus comes to a fork in the road, one sign says Cleveland, the other says Cincinnati. The bus turns around. That about sums up Ohio.

I think it's time to move.

I've traveled a fair amount and I am always struck when I come back home to Ohio how genuinely decent and down to earth the people are.

Opening Day of the baseball season in Cincinnati.

The best ice cream in the universe (Graeters)

Early May in Hocking Hills State Park.

A cool, crisp Saturday in late September with 100,000 of your closest friends tailgating and watching an OSU game. If you've never done it, it is truly an experience to remember.
