I grew up near Cleveland Ohio. I always asked my parents why they chose to live in Ohio, out of all the possible choices. They explained that their family was close, and although they moved away when they were young, they settled in Ohio once they had kids. At the time I thought it was crazy that someone would pass up a coastal warm climate for dreary Ohio. Now I get it…
While it may be a little dreary at times in the winter, it is beautiful in the summer.
The Cuyahoga Valley National Park is near my parents house, as well as other local parks.
My family loves hiking, so many of our days were spent enjoying this….
Florida is great, but they don’t have green trees or forests quite like this. Oh, and don't forget the fall colors! It's been 8 years since I've seen northern fall. I always heard non-native Floridians say they miss the seasons, and I thought they were crazy. Who wouldn't love warm weather all the time.
Now I get it!
