Ohio is a transition state in that Northeast Ohio Ithe Western Reserve aka Connecticut territory) has eastern roots while Southeast Ohio has eastern/southern roots. Southwestern Ohio is more southern/midwest while Northwest Ohio is the beginning of the midwest. Geographically, Ohio lies in the eastern U.S.; Cleveland lies further east than Atlanta and is on par with Jacksonville geographically. Travel due south of Cleveland (I-77) and you end up in the Carolinas.

This map discloses northeast Ohio along the southern shore of Lake Erie to be a part of Minnesota and the eastern Dakotas as the northern/upper midwest - completely different regions altogether. Instead of doing the map with north-south distinctions I would create one in an east-to-west orientation.

Yes, Cleveland is a Northeast city just like Buffalo, Rochester, Scranton, Pittsburgh. Not Midwest at all.

More eastern with a midwest influence...the city was planned as a New England style place...ie Public Square...don't worry, not saying it is east coast or applying the pretentious stereotype used to describe cities in "the east".

Ya, Cleveland is more Buffalo-style "east" than Boston-style "east." It's still down-to-earth, but it's not the Midwest.

There are Cleveland natives that would disagree.
I have friends from Cleveland, they identify as midwesterners.

Because they've been told that...historically and geographically, Cleveland is in the eastern U.S...even the weather.com has Cleveland in the northeast category...
