Yeah, we have at least 6 major ones. There are a lot of smaller cities with skylines also.

If not Ohio, I would say between Florida, Texas, and California. Not too many other states have collections of skylines. NYC is great, but theres only a couple other skylines in the state, and theyre not that good. Illinois has Chicago, which is top 2 in the US, but only a few other small skylines in the whole state.

All it's missing is the humidity and the clear warm waters haha
We have these oil islands that have these huge colorful facades and waterfalls which almost gives the beach a surreal feeling at night


And of course Rainbow Harbor and the Lighthouse with all the color changing lights add to the experience.
