Attractions for all in Ohio

Ohio is the heart and soul of the Great Lakes region, stretching from the peaceful Ohio River to the geological grandeur of the Appalachian Mountains. It might sound like a cliche, but there really is something for everyone here. Explore major cities brimming with world-class museums, sporting venues and cultural hubs, chill out on the blissful beaches of Lake Erie or feel the adrenaline in one of the state's many famous amusement parks. Whether you opt for a resort-style pad in the suburbs or a bustling apartment in Cleveland's bustling downtown district, an Ohio vacation rental puts you in the heart of it all.

Record-breaking roller coasters in Ohio

With so much going on, there's never a shortage of things to do in Ohio. Take a look at the state's packed festival calendar and choose from major events such as Cincinnati's beer-soaked Oktoberfest Zinzinnati and the Cleveland International Film Festival. Foodies can gorge on delicious local fare, including candy buckeyes and succulent Salisbury steaks, while sports fans will have their work cut out with all the hockey, football and baseball games. Seeking thrills? Ohio is home to Cedar Point, dubbed the "Roller Coaster Capital of the World", as well as another famous, fun-packed theme park in the shape of Kings Island. For outdoors types, the state's fresh green countryside and vast lake provide countless opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, boating and more.

Culture, music and more in Ohio

With its historic monuments and vast theme parks, Ohio is packed with attractions to tickle every visitor's fancy. For art lovers, the renowned Cleveland Museum of Art is a must, with a staggering trove of 45,000 artworks on display, including a particularly-impressive collection of Asian and Egyptian pieces. If that seems a little tame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum should hit the spot. Set behind a Louvre-like facade in downtown Cleveland, it boasts an Aladdin's cave of memorabilia and honors some of music's most-influential contributors. Seeking something a little quieter? Cuyahoga Valley National Park offers more than 125 miles of idyllic hiking trails to explore.

Hot sunny summers in Ohio

No matter which part of the state you book an Ohio vacation rental in, the weather won't vary too much. For the most part, Ohio has a humid continental climate, with hot sunny summers and winters that can range from cool to cold. July tends to be the hottest month, so if you prefer mild temperatures, it might be best to visit during spring or towards fall. Severe weather can occur here, but Ohio experiences fewer tornados than the other states that lie within the Tornado Alley region.

Explore the great outdoors in Ohio

Ohio's sprawling countryside sets the scene for a variety of outdoor adventures, providing plenty of eye candy beyond the city limits. To the south, there's the splendor of the Appalachian Mountains, to the north there's the glassy expanse of Lake Erie, and in-between there's rolling countryside, blanketed in peaceful forests and dotted with quaint Amish farms. If you're staying in Cleveland or Akron, you don't have to venture far from your Ohio vacation rental to enjoy nature. Between the 2 cities, Cuyahoga Valley National Park provides a leafy habitat for foxes, peregrine falcons, river otters, eagles and more.
