Note that the warmest month of the year is usually July, where the highest temperatures are regularly about 84.4°F, and temperatures seldom drop below 65.5°F at night. This is why the busiest months for tourism in Ohio are July, May, and June.
So, prices for flights and accommodation will likely be highest during these summer months.
Another great time to visit the Buckeye State is from September to October. This is because the temperatures are quite pleasant with less rainfall. Winters are cold in Ohio, and the low temperatures (average) in the freezing 21°F to 29°F range.

Note that the tasty pies are carefully baked twice in order to ensure freshness. These pies come in several fruity combinations that you will like.
The best thing about Ohio is that you will be able to find some of the most delicious food in some of the most modest and unassuming places. One example is Kihachi. It is a strip-mall yet cozy Japanese gem in the city of Dublin. You can try omakase, letting Chef Mike expertly guide you through the savory Japanese landscape.
