The Tourist Attractions in Ohio:
Columbus is both the largest city and the state capital of Ohio. It’s an attractive city with a lively personality and plenty of things to see and do.
Attractions include the Ohio Statehouse which was built after the Civil War, in the Greek-revival style. Tours are available. Franklin Park Conservatory is a popular attraction which includes gardens, biomes and more, whilst the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has an excellent collection of endangered species. Animals include Siberian tigers, cheetahs and lowland gorillas. Other attractions include an ancient burial mound outside the city, called Adena Conical Burial Mound; Columbus Museum of Art and a variety of festivals and events held throughout the year.
In the north of Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie is the city of Cleveland. Cleveland is best known for its association with rock music and a popular attraction is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Other attractions include architecture through the years – attractive Victorian era structures like the Old Arcade, built in 1890. Terminal Tower is a landmark building, built in 1930. There is an observation deck though this has unfortunately been closed since 9/11. Museums, art galleries, sports, parks and more are some of the other city attractions.
Cincinnati is the third largest city in Ohio and is located in the south west of the state. Although Cleveland’s Terminal Tower observation deck is closed, Cincinnati has the Carew Tower and Observation Deck. The Carew Tower was actually the inspiration for the Empire State Building. Other attractions in the Ohio city include the John A Roebling Suspension Bridge which was built in 1866. Cincinnati has many museums and parks, including Taft Museum of Art, Cincinnati Museum Center and Union Terminal, and Sawyer Point park.
Ohio isn’t all about cities though. There are some lovely scenic attractions here too: Cuyahoga Valley National Park, for example, which is the only national park in Ohio and a very popular destination. There’s some picturesque scenery here, though there are also many historic buildings within the park too. The North Coast Beaches on Lake Erie are great in the summer and feature a number of State Parks, and the Wayne National Forest is a scenic area too.
One more place of interest in Ohio is Holmes County. If you’re interested in seeing Amish people this is a great place to do it as it’s home to the largest population of Amish in the world.
