Ohio has never let itself get stuck in the past. Places such as Cleveland and Cincinnati helped forge the industrial age, but when the industries hit hard times, they managed to exchange rusting factories for gleaming city centers. And in this, the age of computers, Columbus has created some of the highest tech in the country.
So why does this forward-thinking state also put a living-history farm around every bend in the road? Well, we're not sure. But it's refreshing to find a place that can both remember the past and move toward the future.
And it's fun, too: The new and old make for first-rate travel attractions. You can go from serene countryside, traditional crafts and the decidedly unmodern Amish to trendy entertainment zones and interactive museums. Or you can enjoy places such as the Lake Erie Islands, whose beaches and waters are appealing no matter which century you're feeling partial to.
