My personal favorite is Cincinnati, as you come down the "Cut in the Hill" on I-71/75 in Northern KY. But the others aren't bad, either.

Eh? Meh. None of the above. Way to much rust in Ohio skylines and not nearly enough density or smaller eye candy.

This is no competition at all, Cleveland has the best and pretty much only skyline. Cincinnati doesnt have any really tall buildings, and neither does Columbus. Akron, Toledo, and Dayton, Youngstown all have small skylines. Cleveland is the only city to have a real skyline but the 3 really tall buildings make the other high rises look really short when actually there taller than most of Columbus' or CIncinnatis' buildings.

Cleveland's three tall buildings, along with the Shoreway and stadiums, takes the cake. Cincy rocking down to the river is a close second,
although I don't care for the buildings so much.

Most definitely agree with this. It's the best skyline view of any Ohio city. Sadly, you have to be in Kentucky to see it from this angle -- UGH

Cleveland's skyline is #2, and then there's a decent drop-off from there: Columbus is OK, nothing really exciting, and then the other cities' skylines are boring.

I personally have to say Cincinnati for overall cohesiveness and the look of a real downtown. The different views really make it stand out - especially from the NKY side of the river. The problem with Cincinnati is that it lacks height. All the buildings look so similar, and if they would add a soaring tower - say over 750' - it would spice it up a LOT.

As for height of buildings alone, obviously Cleveland wins in that category. But it's only 3 buildings that really stand out. If it weren't for those three, you really wouldn't get the true feel of a downtown skyline.

Columbus has great looking towers, but there's some sort of spark missing from it that really grabs my attention.

Columbus has a skyline of all medium-tall buildings. They are all in a row, it is impressive from the west. Columbus also has the beautiful Leveque Tower, and Columbus' skyline is very long and can be impressive from that stand point.

Cleveland's has more of a focus or point, with the Key Building. Columbus needs another tall tower to be the "point" of focus for the skyline.

Cincinnati is lacking the towers of Columbus or Cleveland, but has a "denser" skyline, if your a fan of that type of skyline.
