11 Ways Ohio Is America’s Black Sheep… And We Love It That Way
Ohio isn’t like the other 49 states.
If you’ve lived here for a few years, you know what I’m talking about. (And if you’ve lived here for less than a year, you probably still know what I’m talking about.) From the shape of our state flag to the way we pronounce national chain department stores and restaurants, the “norm” is just different here in the Buckeye State. Here are 11 ways Ohio is America’s black sheep—but we love it anyway.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
