Ohio truly is a melting pot in every sense. Our big cities are highlighted by larger-than-life skyscrapers and a thriving city life, while our small towns offer charm, charisma and that "welcome home" feel. Ohio's landscape is the perfect palette for touring visitors; the shores of Lake Erie offer a coastal feel, perfect for soaking up the sun's rays, while the Hocking Hills region, nestled on the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, provides rock cliffs, gorges and the perfect getaway for nature enthusiasts. The many cultures and ethnicities that make up Ohio's population can be found in "pocket districts", such as German Village in Columbus and Little Italy in Cleveland. These cultural neighborhoods are infused with delicious foods and authentic art, and are a hotspot for their array of cultures and identities.
