Ohio is a Midwestern state of the US and part of the Great Lakes region. It has long been a cultural and geographical crossroads. Ohio is better known for its cold winters and less than desirable industrial areas than it is for its retirement hot spots. However, the state's low cost of living, friendly Midwestern residents, and Great Lakes recreation areas deserve a second look.
The Ohio River, which runs along the south side of the state, is a favorite for canoeing and kayaking. Miles of bike trails and paved streets roll through beautiful plains and rolling hills. The state is bordered by Lake Erie, one of the Midwest's top tourist attractions and a popular spot for boating and fishing.
