With our list of 10 best places to retire in Ohio you’ll have no problem settling down in the “The Heart of It All”, how the locals like to call this state. If you wonder, the other nicknames are The Buckeye State, The Mother of President, and Birthplace of Aviation.

Ohio was named after the river Ohio, which means “great river” in Iroquoian language. The state of Ohio is located on the east of the United States in the region that is known as the Great Lakes. Other facts about Ohio include that this is the “34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated in the whole country.” If you worry about the weather, you will be happy to know that Ohio in its most parts has a humid continental climate. That means the summers are hot and winters range from cool to cold.
