Things to Do in Ohio

Everyone has a different version of the “best” part of Ohio.  

Are you looking for the “best” schools, consider buying a home in Solon, a Cleveland suburb. Are you looking to move back home to Ohio after living in New York City but want the “best” inclusive community? Check out German Village in Columbus or the city of Lakewood, an inner-ring suburb in Northeast Ohio. Did you retire to a warmer climate, but want to move back to enjoy the grandchildren, but don’t want to give up your waterfront condo? Ohio’s condo options are plentiful along Lake Erie.

Taking that next step in life often involves real estate. Rest assured Ohio real estate will be able to meet your needs.

History of Ohio

History of Ohio

History of Ohio

Ohio was the first state carved out of the Northwest Territory and was admitted to the union in 1803 as the 17th state. Ohio’s named for the Ohio River which flows along its south eastern border with Pennsylvania and West Virginia and its southern border with Kentucky. The word Ohio comes from the Iroquoian language and means ‘great water.’ 


According to the website, Ohio History Central, “By the time the first European explorers arrived in North America in the late 1400s, the original indigenous people had inhabited what is today the State of Ohio for over 14,000 years.” American Indian tribes and nations built and sustained rich and productive societies for centuries prior to European settlements across the beautiful and fertile land of Ohio.

Climate

Generally speaking, the entire state of Ohio experiences the same climate. Residents enjoy the four seasons and adapt their outdoor activities accordingly. During spring and winter you will see some disparities in temperature across the state because of Lake Erie’s water temperatures. Most residents agree that fall and summer are the best seasons in Ohio.

The southern third of the state will have a more temperate climate in winter and spring. But spring can also produce some undesirable storms throughout the state
