Nestled under Lake Erie and the rim of the Appalachian Mountains, Ohio boasts of splendor from all angles. We begin in Cleveland, where for over 200 years, Americans have settled, traded and developed the area. Diverse cultural neighborhoods were stitched together to make up this vibrant patchwork of a city. From the lake, follow the Cuyahoga River south to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park for outdoor adventure. There we find the remnants of the territory’s past, from French fur traders to Iroquois Indians to abolitionists like John Brown.
