Ohio, located in the Midwestern area of the US has Lake Erie to its north. On its south is Michigan, Indiana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Kentucky states along with the famous Ohio River. Aside from this, Ohio shares borders with Ontario, Canada through Lake Erie. As for its terrain, it is known to be mainly flat along its northwestern portion because of its ancient glaciers.

As the terrain heads towards the east as well as southeast, going to Allegheny and Appalachian mountain ranges, it becomes hillier. Hence, aside from the Great Lake of Erie and the Ohio River, this state also has a state forest situated in Wayne, a state park located in Cuyahoga Valley, National Wildlife Refuges, as well as islands located on Lake Erie. Its capital is Columbus which is situated near the state’s center.

It is also located within the heavily inhabited part of the United States, comprising of large commercial cities, industries, small towns as well farmlands. This is why it is also noted as “America’s Heartland,” referring to its agricultural sector situated in its Midwest portion, as well as its industrial base along the Great Lakes.
