Did you know that 45% of all moves annually occur in the hot months of May through August? (Check out this post to learn more.) If this summer’s squelching
temperatures have you itching to pack up and move, Dayton movers and Columbus movers have a suggestion: why not move to Ohio?
Here are a few reasons to move to the buckeye state.
Ohio has a booming economy, despite the lackluster growth across the rest of the country. A breath of accolades includes being ranked number two in the nation for best business climate by Site Selection magazine and being ranked the number 13 state in the U.S. for best business climate by U.S. News and World Report. Additionally, Ohio has five of the top 115 universities in the nation and was ranked number eight for best high schools.
Ohio connects the Northeast with the Midwest and has the nation’s tenth largest highway network. It is possible to be within one day’s travel of 50% of North America’s population from Ohio’s boarders. With access to major cities across the northeast and northern Midwest, if you live in Ohio, you’re never far from your destination.
Ohio is home to the first ever-professional baseball team and currently has a major league sports team in baseball (Cincinnati Reds & Cleveland Indians), football (Cincinnati Bengals & Cleveland Browns), basketball (Cleveland Cavaliers), hockey (Columbus Blue Jackets) and soccer (Columbus Crew). Additionally, Ohio is home to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and has eight NCAA Division I-A college football teams.
Claim to Fame
Many Ohioans go on to be quite famous. Among the top of the list are the Wright brothers, Thomas Edison, Steven Spielberg, Paul Newman, Annie Oakley, Arsenio Hall, and Clark Gable. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is also located on Ohio soil, at 1100 Rock and Roll Boulevard in Cleveland.
