Ohio is a state of great diversity. From the
Appalachian foothills of the southeast, the Lake Erie coast to the northwest,
the Amish country of the northeast, and the Bluegrass hills of the southwest,
the state has one of the greatest diversity of land for a state its size. But
this site isn’t about fancy hills or lakes; it’s about Ohio's secret weapon,
urban areas. UrbanOhio is a site showcasing Ohio architecture, Ohio skyscrapers,
Ohio skylines, with obscure villages, small towns and big cities represented.
The state has eight metropolitan areas over 400,000 people: Cleveland,
Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Akron, Toledo, Youngstown, and Canton. Including
those plus countless other smaller metropolitan areas and small towns dotting
the landscape, about 75% of the people in the state live in urbanized areas.
As a state of 11.5 million residents, Ohio is the nation’s seventh largest
state in population. A state of contrast, from the row-houses and town-homes of
Cincinnati to the double-decked duplexes and large apartment buildings of
Cleveland to the town squares of Troy and Medina, Ohio is a state full of
variety in architecture, people and landscapes. Hopefully, this site will open
your eyes and show you the beauty of the Buckeye State!
