Moderately heavy rain falls throughout the year. The best time to visit the state is during the early autumn (September-October) when temperatures range from 15.6°C to 26.7°C (60.08°F - 80.06°F).

Celebrate rock ‘n roll

Over the years, Ohio has produced many musical artists, including Marilyn Manson, John Legend, Art Tatum, and Stanley. Learn more about American music at the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland, which pays tribute to rock music by displaying instruments, souvenirs, awards, and other cultural artifacts.

Admire some antique planes

To learn more about American aviation history, head over to the National Museum of the US Air Force in Dayton – you’ll find preserved aircraft from several decades ago! This museum has gliders from the Wright era as well as stealth fighters from the Cold War.

Discover football history

If you enjoy sports, you’ll love the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. This building showcases some beautiful sports memorabilia – jerseys, trophies, and so on. It’s a fitting tribute to the state in which the National Football League (NFL) was formed.

Visit the Cuyahoga Valley National Park

The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a beautiful place to spend a vacation. It is complete with 70 waterfalls and several sandstone formations. The park is home to many species including the American Beaver – an animal over which entire wars were once fought!

Eating Out in Ohio

 

For some premium dining in the sort of place that an American President would visit, dine at the Golden Lamb. Voted Ohio’s top restaurant by MSN.com, it serves some amazing sauerkraut balls and shepherd’s pie in an antique dining room. For something very unconventional, drive to the Buckeye Express Diner in Bellville. This fast-food eatery is located inside a vintage train!

No matter how far you are from Mexico, you can find some great Mexican food – like at Mazunte Taqueria, in Cincinnati. Chef Josh Wamsley makes some epic tortillas with meat stuffing. Finally, taste Ohio’s signature dish, the Polish Boy, at Whitmore’s BBQ. It’s a sandwich with sausage and french fries.
