OHIO MUST-SEES/MUST-DOS:

Cincinnati – Spring Grove Cemetery is beautiful.

Cincinnati – Findlay Market has free food samples, which is always fun.

Cincinnati – Contemporary Arts Center really neat exhibits and the unmuseum on the top floor where you get to interact with the art is the best!

Cincinnati – National Underground Railroad Freedom Center so much history and very well presented.

Cleveland – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – especially cool if you’re really into music. Great exhibits, pricy though.

OHIO THINGS TO SKIP IF YOU’RE CRUNCHED FOR TIME:

Columbus – I checked out the German Village, it was meh. Nothing else sounded cool.

Toledo – Toledo Museum of Art, your basic art museum, granted I totally missed the Glass Pavilion, which actually looks pretty cool, so maybe you should go and check that out and let me know how it was.

 

Are there any other number related things or best’s or whatnot you’d like to know? Leave me a comment below!
