The sluggish economy isn’t winning Ohio any fans. In fact, it’s driving away its residents. Sixty-five percent of the people who moved out of Ohio in 2017 said they left the state for a new job elsewhere. With more opportunities in creative and scientific fields in the west, people are packing up and moving across the country to find better wages and opportunities. Another reported reason was from older folks who are looking for more affordable housing in a warmer climate to live out their retirement years. That being said, Ohio is home to several exciting cities. Cincinnati and Cleveland are both bustling with entertainment and are renowned arts and cultural centers. Outdoorsy folks like it here, too. Residents are able to experience the four seasons in all their glory and some pretty incredible natural wonders in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
