What to Expect
As one of the nation's industrial leaders, Ohio ranks third in the U.S. for manufacturing employment. This is in spite of massive industrial decline since the 1960s, which has made Ohio the center of the "Rust Belt." However, the state continues to be a leader in the production of transportation equipment, metals and machinery. The state's economy is also helped by products from the land, including lime, clay, salt and agriculture. Extensive farmland produces corn, soybeans, hay, wheat, cattle, hogs and dairy products.
Ohioans are proud of their historical heritage, and the state makes it a priority to preserve and honor its landmarks and attractions. From sacred Native American grounds to Civil War sites to Ohio's second-to-none aviation legacy, there is plenty here to appreciate. Those who like to explore the great outdoors won't have to look far. Ohio offers hiking, hunting, fishing, bird watching, water sports and other recreational activities.
And what are you likely to find in terms of cost when looking for apartments in the state? Ohio's overall cost of living is about 5.5% below the national average, with housing—including apartments for rent—among the best benefits at 15% below average.
