Why You Should Fly to Ohio

Although it lies at the heart of the Rust Belt, there is much more to the state of Ohio than heavy industry. It’s situated on the southern shore of Lake Erie and as you head further south the urban landscapes give way to less populated and forested areas. It’s also a state dripping in history, originally inhabited by the Iroquois people, in whose native tongue Ohio means ‘something great’. They certainly weren’t wrong about that.

When to Book Flights to Ohio

Ohio is a state of four distinct season. Visit in winter and you can take your pick of the state’s five ski resorts and multiple toboggan runs. Spring’s arrival is heralded by the wildflowers and the national forest areas bursting into life, with colorful birdlife along the lake shore.

In the summer, the visitor numbers swell to take advantage of the miles of hiking and biking trails, with the theme parks adding some adrenaline. In the fall, the forests blaze with brilliant colors and the air is rich with the scent of mulling cider.

In short, there’s no bad time to visit, but flights and accommodation do tend to be more expensive in the high summer season.
