Toledo – Glass City

somewhere on this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo,_Ohio

Sandusky – Roller Coaster Capital of the World

I think it is pretty obvious with Cedar Point there.

Valley City – Frog Jump Capital of Ohio

For the frog jump contest they hold.

I am sure residents of each city have their own heartfelt nicknames and some cities have many nicknames.
