This week, Buzzfeed posted a fun piece with that title, noting examples like Charles Ramsey's heroics, our Millionaire's Row past, homegrown celebs, and 21,000 acres of glorious Cleveland Metroparks.
Plus the Hollywood attention we're getting over the next two months.
All great examples, believe us, but there could have been at least these three others.

The burning-river jokes will never go away, but to see the biological and recreational rebirth of the Crooked River since 1969, it really is an environmental success story.

It was from 1951, one of several fires that burned on the river pre-1969.) Photo: CSU Digital Humanities
