Fun for all at Ohio vacation home rentals

Ohio is the heart and soul of the Great Lakes region, stretching from the peaceful Ohio River to the geological grandeur of the Appalachian Mountains. It might sound like a cliche, but there really is something for everyone here. Explore major cities brimming with world-class museums, sporting venues and cultural hubs, chill out on the blissful beaches of Lake Erie or feel the adrenaline in one of the state's many famous amusement parks. Whether you opt for a resort-style pad in the suburbs or a bustling apartment in Cleveland's bustling downtown district, an Ohio vacation rental puts you in the heart of it all.

History

Historic sites near Ohio vacation homes

Ohio has a rich history with fascinating museums and historic sites to explore. Vacation rentals can be found near interesting places like Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial, a scenic park with a monument to those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie, and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, an interactive museum with film, animation, and multimedia exhibits focused on slavery.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near Ohio vacation homes

With its historic monuments and vast theme parks, Ohio is packed with attractions to tickle every visitor's fancy. For art lovers, the renowned Cleveland Museum of Art is a must, with a staggering trove of 45,000 artworks on display, including a particularly-impressive collection of Asian and Egyptian pieces. If that seems a little tame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum should hit the spot. Set behind a Louvre-like facade in downtown Cleveland, it boasts an Aladdin's cave of memorabilia and honors some of music's most-influential contributors. Seeking something a little quieter? Cuyahoga Valley National Park offers more than 125 miles of idyllic hiking trails to explore.

No matter which part of the state you book an Ohio vacation rental in, the weather won't vary too much. For the most part, Ohio has a humid continental climate, with hot sunny summers and winters that can range from cool to cold.
