Within 50 to 75 miles outside I-270, where is the best place to watch the sunrise?

Interesting question...and I have no idea! My guess is someplace on the west side facing the downtown area would be best. There is a place called the Golf Depot in Gahanna that would have a nice sunset. It sits above the city. Great view of the downtown skyline.

Try to find a place higher. Maybe the internet maps can help if you can find the elevations. I would look for areas that peek out from the rest of the areas.

Trees and buildings will get in the way. If you can find a hill near a lake that might be best.

Try up at Alum Creek State Park. Great reservoir, dog park, frisbee golf, and lots of open space and trees.

I'm not sure if it's the best and I haven't been there but Great Seal State Park is between Circleville and Chilicothe. That's the sunset (or sunrise?) that's depicted on the seal of Ohio. Just a thought.

I would suggest the top of the Miamisburg Mound on Mound st. in Miamisburg (www.ohiohistory.org), the prehistoric earthwork just down the street from you. Opens at daylight. Free. Enjoy!!
