I grew up in Ohio. In recent years I have adopted Montana as my home state but I love Ohio and may move back someday. Why? It's pretty, is inexpensive to live, has a sense of history and diversity of cultures, comparatively mild weather, and it has good food. And the people are great too.

Ohio's big cities are dripping with character ... try finding that in the South.

Ohio's small towns are some of the most quaint, picturesque, comfortable places in America.

Ohio has fresh water.

Ohio is close to the East Coast.

Ohio has all four complete seasons.

Ohio has some of the best arts in the world.

Ohio has a definite sense of history.

SE Ohio has lush green forests.

Ohio's small towns are some of the most quaint, picturesque, comfortable places in America. Boone, Blowing Rock, NC, Oxford, MS...but loved Chagrin Falls..

Ohio has fresh water. hmm, that's great

Ohio is close to the East Coast. and your point is?

Ohio has all four complete seasons. I prefer 3 seasons

Ohio has some of the best arts in the world. Cleveland has some good arts, wouldn't make this statement about Ohio arts though

Ohio has a definite sense of history. not sure if OH has monopoly on this, Philly, Boston, Savannah, Charleston, SC come to mind..

Party cities don't pay the bills.

The fact of the truth is that it's the businesses that are leaving Ohio and the people are just following the companies.

Wonderful. I can't even post things I love about Ohio on an Ohio forum without some hater chiming in as to why my opinions are wrong.

Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga., do not have anywhere near the amenities of Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus, which are just on an altogether different level.

Ohio's small towns are some of the most quaint, picturesque, comfortable places in America. Boone, Blowing Rock, NC, Oxford, MS...but loved Chagrin Falls.. I believe I said Ohio has "some of the most quaint, picturesque, comfortable places in America," not all. You can go from great small town to great small town one after the other in Ohio. It's is interesting is that you cherry picked two Southern towns that are a 10-hour drive and almost three states and 600 miles apart.

Ohio has fresh water. hmm, that's great If you think this is a joke, you probably haven't been paying attention to the severe water crisis that many parts of the South have been suffering through in recent years. Atlanta's reservoirs were in such dire straits just two summers ago that massive water restrictions were in effect. As the South's bloated population continues to swell, you can expect a lot more of that and even Western-style state water feuds starting. So feel free to mock Ohio's abundant fresh water all you want - for now.

Ohio is close to the East Coast. and your point is? I happen to love the East Coast, which is why it's nice that some of the world's great cities (NYC, Washington DC, Philadelphia), are accessible from anywhere in Ohio.

Ohio has all four complete seasons. I prefer 3 seasons I prefer all four. And some people prefer only one, hence the existence of Yuma, Ariz., and Barrow, Alaska. Your point?

Ohio has some of the best arts in the world. Cleveland has some good arts, wouldn't make this statement about Ohio arts though I'm confident the elite museums, orchestras and cultural institutions of Cleveland, Cincinnati and Columbus will survive without your endorsement.

Ohio has a definite sense of history. not sure if OH has monopoly on this, Philly, Boston, Savannah, Charleston, SC come to mind.. I never said American history was confined to Ohio. Certainly every state in this country can stake claim to its share of history. But not everywhere is it as obvious as it is in Ohio and older East Coast states.

SE Ohio has lush green forests.seems you can find this in most states[/ Again, I never said Ohio cornered the market on forests and trees. But after having lived for five years out West, I can assure you that I don't take this for granted anymore. quote]

Easy to spell.

Don't have to worry about spending lots of money on sports champion T-shirts.

No big cities to slow down your drive through the state (on your way to prettier, neighboring states. Indiana excepted).

High roller coaster per capita rate.

The aroma of livestock is never far away.

Close to Pennsylvania

Close to Michigan

Ontario is really close if you have a boat (or are a really good swimmer).

Definitive accent (Ohioans love their vowels! Go figure the state name is 75% vowel).

Note: Ohioans, I was born and raised in Ohio. Please do not take offense to this post. It was meant all in fun.

Don't feed it. "It" is a NC troll.

Yes, so many people are going to Michigan's broke, decaying, and dead cities. Your terrible roads, pathetic economy are so attractive. I always love seeing all the Michigan cars down here everyday. Not to mention all the former Michiganders who now live here... But really no offense.

As I said, it was meant as light-hearted humour. Don't get your panties in a bunch.
I think as far cities, economy, roads the two are nearly identical. Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids are far from decaying, Youngstown and Toledo are far from the picture of wealth. Plenty of Ohioans up here also. Can't help but notice the cars as they are driving 10 mph under the speed limit in the left lane everywhere.
