One-Tank Trip: Cincinnati

From Skyline Chili, to its riverfront, to flying pigs, Cincinnati is a city that wears its history on its sleeve. During the 1980s as the city was reviving its riverfront, an artist came up with the concept of the “flying pig” sculptures as a nod to the city’s past as a major pork producer, earning it the nickname “Porkopolis.”

One-tank trip: Amish Country

In 1805, a group of Amish settlers in Pennsylvania began the move west to Ohio, resulting in one of the nation’s largest concentrations of their community. Today, Northeast Ohio is home to 60,000 Amish in roughly 52 communities. Amish life is a big draw for non-Amish tourists, who are curious and fascinated with their 19th century way of life.
