The wine thing surprised me. Ohio wine is not a well know world vintage!Cleveland is very ethnic mainly Mediterranean/Italian/Baltic which brings some great eating. The city is lake oriented and wine country is just east of the city.
Cincinnati has a bunch of fine art museums, strong German, Greek, and Italian eating plus Cincinnati style chili served over pasta, has a fantastic riverfront and is river oriented, Ohio Valley wine is everywhere and we have 20 microbreweries like 16Lots.
Both cities have decent baseball but their pro football teams suck. Cincy now has FCCincinnati who joins MLS next year. Worlds Championship Frisbee is weekend after next. The swimming pool at Coney is the 2nd biggest re-circulating pool in the world. County and City parks are superb.
Yes we have 2 acres here in Texas which we paid 10 thousand for with a 1600 ft home on it and we have homestead it makes taxes cheaper. No neighbors all around us 1 guy owns all of it and we live in the middle of his U lolback in the day they always have large lots, but today Greed steps in and they try to get as many on a plot of land, so now you open your window and shake hands with your neighbor. Also folks could and still can in some cases, can homestead some land and they are usually very large parcels.
I went in 2017. It was a great time. Visited the Rock'nRoll place, watched a Browns game. Went to a state park and then drove up to Niagara. If you haven't made that journey, then I suggest you do so at the soonenst time possible. A world site that does not let you down.Visit Chicago if you are still going up there, or dis-reguard if you have already been. Oshkosh has a great air show there in Wisconson check it out, best to visit during the spring or fall, less touristy.
