Living in the NW/NC part of the state offers lots of things. Lake Erie is Walleye central and there are so many charters here, it boggles the mind! Beaches, jetski and boat rentals, etc. Put-In-Bay Island, Cedar Point, The Toledo Zoo, The African Wildlife Safari, Sauder Village, not to mention the four FULL seasons, Fall being my personal favorite. If you're into the shooting sports, you cannot miss the National Matches at Camp Perry.
Personally, I'm not much on winter cold, I have crappy circulation, but I love the snow and the fun I have in it. Snowmobiling, snow wheeling in my Jeep, playing with the kids, building snow forts and having snowball fights....I just can't stay out in it very long. Kinda sux. It's a catch 22 for me.
A lot of flat land, but there is still a LOT to see and do here! Underrated indeed.
