After finally leaving Kentucky, I continued north and east toward Ohio. My initial plan was to stay in Columbus, but due to the long drive from there to Buffalo, I decided to stay closer to Cleveland. Now, when I think of Ohio, I always remember what a professor said about not wanting to live in a state that starts and ends with a 0.
Upon crossing the river into Cincinnati, I decided to stop for a quick bit and am glad I did. Their waterfront is really well set up nicely, and lots of families were out enjoying the warm day. I found a patio for Jasper, and got a beer and a couple tacos (they were not my fav).
I was ready to get back on the road, and instead of stopping in Columbus, drove to my hotel outside of Cleveland. I found a La Quinta that was pretty decent, and instead of driving more (I know, I know), I went to the bar across the parking lot for a beer and a steak salad (actually pretty good). At that point, I was ready to not spend more, so I went back to my room and finished my wine.
And that was my whole experience in Ohio. On to upper New York!
