Now that airplanes are starting to install seat-back TVs, you can catch up on reruns of Ohio-based television shows like "Drew Carey" and the fictional "WKRP in Cincinnati" on your flight to Ohio. But, Ohio is more than just comedy -- it's one of the nation's leading manufacturers and ranks third in manufacturing employment across America.
Prior to building up the economy, Ohio served as a battleground in some pivotal wars. Indians fought for Ohio land in 1794 during the battle of Fallen Timbers and some travellers booking flights to Ohio might remember studying the War of 1812. It might have only lasted one year, but Commodore Oliver H. Perry defeated the British in today's Ohio in the Battle of Lake Erie.
Today, Ohio's cities produce some of the nation’s most essential products. Chances are your flight to Ohio is thanks to Cincinnati, where jet engines are manufactured.
While Ohio maintains a pivotal role in our nation's manufacturing and industrial production, tourism is also a key factor in Ohio’s economy. Who can pass up a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or the Pro Football Hall of Fame? History buffs can visit the homes of U.S. Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, William Howard Taft, Rutherford Hayes, Warren Harding and James Garfield.
Thanks to the millions of visitors booking Ohio flights and hotel accommodations every year, the state sees more than $30 billion a year. Book a flight to Ohio to see a state worth discovering.
