Cincinnati, Ohio

  • Ohio State has been nicknamed “Mother of Modern Presidents,” as Ohio is the birthplace of seven U.S. presidents: Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William H. Taft and Warren G. Harding. Two Ohio presidents: Grant and McKinley are portrayed on the US Currency, which is kind of a big deal, don’t you think.
  • Ohio is popularly known as the Buckeye State. Reason….? The buckeye trees which are spread throughout the Ohio River Valley. These trees produce small brown nuts resembling the eye of a deer; and hence the name Buckeye. Bonus fact: carrying one in your pocket brings good luck.
