Ohio: Glee

Want to see suburban life in Ohio the way it really is plus a few singing and dancing teenagers? Go binge watch some reruns of the hit series Glee on Netflix.

As the name of the show would imply, Glee centers on a musical high school club. Its members are unconventional, as the club seems to draw in misfits. The teens come together as a little family and the series explores their friendships, love lives and personal trials, as well as those of the faculty members who assist them.

Glee is set in the town of Lima, Ohio. While the story is fiction, the city is not. In fact, while Glee was on the air, Lima worked very hard to get some of its local landmarks seen on-screen. Residents seemed overall to like that, despite some major physical inaccuracies and dramatizations (you won’t actually find any palm trees in Ohio), the show stuck true to the struggle of a small town. Glee explored what it was really like to grow up in a tight-knit suburban community.

These days, Glee lovers can rejoice: there are actual landmarks in Lima that fans of the show can see in real life. If you’re meticulous enough, you’ll be able to track down some local hotspots and get the true Lima experience.
