Named after the river running through it, Ohio is located in America’s far northeast between Pennsylvania and Indiana. Despite its relatively small size, this vibrant state packs a heavy punch – from the beaches of Port Clinton to the cultural hub of Cleveland and beautiful Amish country, there’s something here to suit every taste.

Port Clinton

Port Clinton, Lake Erie and Sandusky together form part of Vacationland, one of Ohio’s top tourist destinations. Known for its golden sands and the local legend of Bessie, a mythical serpent creature lurking in its depths, Lake Erie is a place of beauty and intrigue. Carl R Keller Field Airport is a convenient airport located closeby.


Not too far from Lake Erie is Cleveland, the first city to be lit by electricity and the birthplace of rock ’n’ roll. Peruse masterpieces at the Cleveland Museum of Art and discover the city’s musical roots at the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame. The city is home to many great airports, however we particularly recommend Cleveland Hopkins International Airport for its top-class service.

Amish Country

Experience the simple life in Ohio’s Amish Country, located a short distance from state capital Columbus. Its picturesque pastoral landscapes are home to a friendly community of traditionalist Christian church fellowships. Fly-in to Port Columbus International Airport and witness the quaint Amish lifestyle for yourself.


A trip to Ohio would not be complete without stopping by this famous sporting city. Baseball fans will know that Cincinnati is where the first ever professional baseball team, the Red Stockings, was formed in 1869. Book a private jet charter to Cincinnati Municipal Airport and watch them play as the Cincinnati Reds in the glorious Great American Ball Park.
