Brimming with history, Midwest charm and beautiful landscapes, Ohio is the place to be for quintessential American small towns. From arty Yellow Springs – one of the nation's coolest small towns – to the picturesque island community of Put-in-Bay, The Culture Trip rounds up some of the prettiest places in the Buckeye State.
Located on tiny South Bass Island around five miles from the Ohio mainland, Put-in-Bay is a picturesque island town and popular summer tourist destination when thousands flock to enjoy the town's quaint restaurants, lively pubs and recreational activities like walleye and perch fishing – no wonder Put-in-Bay is often nicknamed the "Key West of the North". History buffs will delight in its historic homes and pivotal role in the War of 1812: Perry's Victory and International Peace Monument – a 352 foot high Doric column and one of the USA's tallest monuments – towers over Put-in-Bay's harbor and commemorates Oliver Hazard Perry's victory over British forces in the waters off the island.
