1. Buckeye candy doesn't taste quite as good anywhere else...

2. ...because there's only one true home for every kind of Buckeye.


4. And whether you're a bigger fan of riding the Banshee at Kings Island...

5. ...or the Millennium Force at Cedar Point, Ohio's amusement park game is incomparable.

6. There's only one Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and you can only see it in Cleveland.

8. And we're just so swingin', politicians can't get enough of us whenever election time rolls around.

9. We knew this Wendy girl was really onto something long before everyone else caught on.

The first Wendy's opened in Columbus in 1969.

10. And we were the first to appreciate just how splendid Jeni's Ice Cream really is.
