From the shores of Lake Erie along its northern border to the vast peaks of the Appalachian Mountain Range along the southern border, the great state of Ohio has a broad array of zombie survival options when it comes to places to go.

Given the state’s location, it would be wise to stay near water if only for the option of catching fish so there’s always a food source. The banks of Lake Erie will be a great place to grow crops during the warmer months, too.

However, when it comes to being away from everyone else and riding out the zombie apocalypse away from everyone else, head South to the Appalachian Mountains. You’ll find people there already, and if you can find people to work with who have lived there for a long time you’ll be set. The Appalachian Mountains have places to grow food, there are natural fortifications and plenty of hunting and fishing.

In Ohio’s case, moving away from the cities and heading to the northern or southern borders might be your best bet.
