  1. The Weather in Ohio is Always Cold - There seems to be a common misconception that Ohio weather is constantly cold. While the state does experience cold, snowy winters, it also has warm, balmy summers. According to U.S. Climate Data, average highs in Ohio from June through August are in the low to mid 80s. Contrary to the thoughts of some, Ohio does experience four distinct seasons, and its summers can get quite toasty.
  2. Some of the State's Urban Centers are Dead - This myth mostly concerns Cleveland, Ohio. While Cleveland has gone through some hard times in its recent history, many sources, including the Los Angeles Times, assert that the city is on the rise. For example, Cleveland opened its first casino, Horseshoe Casino, in 2012, an endeavor that has brought many tourists to the city as well as created new jobs. Cleveland has also benefited from the promising futures of its sports teams. More people are moving back to Cleveland or choosing never to leave in the first place, and while the city still has work to do before it matches its earlier heyday, it is definitely on the right track.

  4. Ohio is Polluted and Dirty
 - Unfortunately, it is no myth that the Cuyahoga River was so polluted in 1969 that it actually caught fire. However, it is outdated to still associate the area with the "river that burned." Ohio in general and especially Cuyahoga County have put a great focus on cleaning up the environment. The dirtiest areas in the past are definitely on the way to recovery. According to the National Park Service, even the Cuyahoga River itself is on the mend and may be able to be completely cleaned with continued hard work and dedication.
  5. There Isn't Anything to Do in Ohio - Many people have the idea that Ohio is a sort of barren wasteland when it comes to entertainment. However, this couldn't be further from the truth. The state's three major cities – Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus – offer many outlets for entertainment, from a menagerie of professional sports teams to a host of museums and cultural attractions. The Cleveland area is home to both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Pro Football Hall of Fame, both of which draw thousands of tourists every year. For those who want more relaxing activities, there are several world-renowned orchestras which call the state home, and Lake Erie and its islands are always a great source for laid-back fun.
