There’s a sense of magic when you see a body of water.

The sun glistening against the rolling waves, and the warm breeze in the air can quickly remind you of the good times. A memory of your first sail along the shoreline; setting foot on a beach you once visited every summer; fishing with your siblings. The view of water can quickly bring a smile to your face. For those living in Northeast Ohio, we get to experience that magic almost every day with our view of beautiful Lake Erie. Pair our Great Lake with over 100 inland lakes and Ohio proves that water and magic, are never far away.

Good vibes aside, our waterways also contribute to Ohio’s economic and social impact. The lakes, rivers, and streams serve as a means of transportation for goods, serve as a source of recreation and provide a natural habitat for many Ohio wildlife, creating jobs and conservation programs throughout the state.

We’re proud of our waterways, and we hope you are too.
