Renting an Alamo hire car to pick up in Ohio is hassle-free, and you have the opportunity to select a model to meet you and your family or party's needs. It is the most convenient and economical way to travel while you are enjoying your holiday.
Ohio is often spoken of as the true American heartland, with a mix of the many different qualities that represent the nation. Situated midway between the northeast and the Midwest, Ohio is bordered by Lake Eerie to the north and the Appalachian Mountains to the east, while in between are great plains, bustling cities, rural townships and all the flavours of American life. Reliable car hire is essential for exploring the Buckeye State, and Alamo has depots at Cleveland International Airport, Cincinnati International Airport, Dayton International Airport and Akron-Canton Regional Airport.
The history of flight
If you arrive by plane in Dayton, you might want to spend some time reflecting on the city's role in the early history of aviation. Dayton is the birthplace of the Wright Brothers, and the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park pays tribute to their achievements. There is also a National Memorial on the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, overlooking the Huffman-Prairie Flying Field where the brothers worked on their pioneering experimental aircraft.
You might then want to take advantage of your hire car by setting off down Interstate 275 to Cincinnati, where highlights include the Cincinnati Museum Centre, a multi-museum complex housed in the 1930s Art Deco building that was formerly the city railway station. This incorporates the Cincinnati History Museum, the Museum of Natural History and Science, an OMNIMAX theatre and the Duke Energy Children's Museum.
Back to the country
55 miles south-east of the state capital of Columbus, Hocking Hills State Park near Logan is known primarily for its cave and rock formations, although trails also lead through rich forests and up to cliff top viewing points. Heading north, the area between Columbus and Akron is home to the world's largest Amish community, in rural Holmes County. The towns of Millersburg, Berlin and Walnut Creek welcome visitors, so why not step back in time to the days of horse-drawn buggies and ploughs, and enjoy a taste of simple living, good plain food and country hospitality.
If you want to get your energy levels back up after the slow pace of Amish living, what could be better than the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland? The museum showcases the history of rock n' roll in the city where the term was first coined, and is a great visit for music fans of all ages. Wherever you choose to travel on your Ohio road trip, you will get a true taste of America in all its many fascinating guises.
