Not content being the Ohio Society of Professional Journalists’ overall winner for 2011 Best Monthly in Ohio, a few of Ohio Magazine’s staff members walked away with individual awards themselves. A captivating and descriptive profile of Ohio naturalist-illustrator Julie Zickefoose, “Our Lady of the Birds” by John C. Bruening, was named Best Artist Profile, with second place bestowed upon a fellow Ohio colleague, Jennifer Rogers. For her full body of work in 2010, Linda Feagler was awarded Best Arts Reporting, and not to be left out, Lesley Blake wrangled in the Best Graphic Design/Navigation award for the magazine’s online counterpart.

But it’s not the awards that keep subscribers coming back. Within the glossy pages of each monthly issue lies a veritable treasure trove of historical tidbits, compelling stories, shopping tips, and event information—all focused around the Buckeye State. In sections such as Travel, readers delve into written and pictorial chronologies of in-state excursions, as well as extensive resources detailing where to find the best hotels, which destinations are best in which seasons, and which desserts the local police enjoy in the event you get pulled over for speeding. The Food and Wine section profiles tempting culinary destinations, and Home and Garden leads green thumbs around the state to the most verdant nurseries and the most beautiful home gardens.

Paula Atwell wasn't born an artist. She didn't pursue any art form in college, instead achieving a degree in English and a minor in accounting. After logging years in standard 9–5 jobs, she had an epiphany—it was time to do something for herself. Taking this newfound motivation to action, Paula enrolled in a beading class and followed it with forays into metalsmithing, crafting, and soldering. These experiments in creativity led her to join the Lake Erie Artists co-op in 2003, where she began to show her eclectic jewelry at their booth during local festivals. When the co-op became incorporated in 2005, Paula's business world experience made her an obvious choice to lead the diverse group of artists in forming their own gallery. Today, the co-op-turned-gallery now carries hundreds of art pieces that span a range of media. Producing blown-glass sculptures and handcrafted metal jewelry and pottery, the artists each specialize in a few select media as decided during the gallery's annual game of spin-the-paintbrush. The staff at Lake Erie Artists Gallery is also a strong proponent of local business, encouraging their patrons to browse Shake Square after looking at their wares. In project-oriented classes taught by working artists, students explore jewelry and painting and leave with their handcrafted pieces.

Now in its 23rd year, the I-X Indoor Amusement Park returns to the International Exposition Center with more than 20 acres of rides, games, and attractions. The indoor wonderland opens its doors from late March to early April on select dates, giving Cleveland families a springtime window to zip around on more than 30 thrill rides or read poetry to farm animals at a petting zoo. The newly added Cirque Shanghai dazzles eyes with a mammoth spectacle of daring acrobatics and motorcycle daredevilry, while daily Big Cat shows showcase the abilities of rescued tigers from a Sarasota, Florida, animal sanctuary. A collection of carnival fare, such as corn dogs, cotton candy, fresh-squeezed lemonade, and deep-fried baseball caps, rounds out the summer-like atmosphere.
