The state is actually fairly divers landscape. Northwest is flat farmland with a few rivers. Northeast has a lot of the cities there; Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown...ect. There is also some farmland, but not as much as Northwest. Southwest is best known for Dayton and Cincinnati...not a lot other than that. Southeast has the more scenic hoking hills area, and plenty of trees. Southern Ohio in general is a bit poorer than the northern half of Ohio.
The state is having hardship like everywhere else due to the tanking economy. Gasoline is fairly cheap in the state. Houses are still being built so the housing market is only fair. It's a buyers market for the most part. Crime is on the raise in most city areas. The state has 5 of the major cities has known to be violent; Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati, Dayton, and Youngstown. There are, however, some good suburbs to these cities.
Overall from 1-10 I give the state a 6.
