    Lake Erie
    Hocking Hills
    Serpent Mound
    Many spots on the Ohio river

    All I got for natural, but southern Ohio and Lake Erie are both underrated for beauty.

    Easy to spend too much time at the micro-breweries.

    The New River Gorge Bridge
    Potomac Eagle (train ride through a gorge filled w/bald eagles)
    Seneca Rocks

    this is a mixture of personal preferences and things that just occurred to me. Some would include Cranberry Glades or Hawks Nest or Blennerhasset Island or Blackwater Canyon or the gold-leaf dome of the state capitol.
    I would add Dolly Sods Wilderness and Canaan Valley in general (Blackwater Falls is in that area). It is the most beautiful area of the state IMO.
    The Potomac Eagle is enjoyable.

    Both are good but I prefer Columbus--much easier to get around with several kids in tow.

    honorable mention: Mt. Vernon (George Washington's home)
    I would add Colonial Williamsburg and about a zillion haunting battlefields. Man, is Virginia a history lover's paradise.

    Blackwater Falls is where I filleted fish for the first time. also went tubing for the first time in my life in the Blackwater River; still one of my favorite memories growing up.

    that's why my brother moved there. he actually apprenticed as a blacksmith at Colonial Williamsburg before being accepted to William and Mary.

    I have good friends who work at the Mariner's Museum and the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, and others who live a few minutes from CW. They might have crossed paths with your brother at one time or another.

    Yorktown is one of my favorite places. Battlefields are just a couple of minutes from the York River. It's a beautiful spot that also has a small beach that not too many people know about...yet. Decent pub or two down there, as well.
