Besides great soccer, there are plenty of other things to occupy the soccer family in Ohio. The Buckeye state has a rich history, with attractions that date back to the prehistoric times through the native Americans to the era of slavery. If it is more modern excitement you are after, try taking in a day at one of Ohio's seventeen amusement parks while dad plays a round on one of the states 800+ golf courses.
