Brainstorming a new Buckeye State marketing slogan

Ohio has spent years urging visitors to "find it here," but may end up finding a new marketing slogan altogether.

Driving the news: Tomorrow is Ohio Tourism Day and some state leaders want to change gears with a revamp of the tourism office — highlighting not just travel opportunities, but the broader benefits of "living, learning and working" here.

Tell us: What should Ohio choose for a new marketing slogan?

✅ Our pick: Bring back our former slogan, "Ohio: The Heart of It All."

  • This references our shape, our Midwestern location and reminds the U.S. that we have a heart. Wouldn't hurt.

What's next: The tourism office changes are proposed within the massive budget bill still under negotiation at the Statehouse.

  • If approved, we could see a new marketing campaign rolled out later this year.
