Ryan will campaign in Lima, Ohio on Monday, and continue on to Cincinnati on Tuesday, according to the campaign
Romney will hold an event in Dayton on Tuesday, then three events - Columbus, Cleveland and Toledo - on Wednesday.
Romney has kept a light schedule, holding just two public rallies in the past five days.
Some Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, have called on Romney to campaign more aggressively in swing states.
"I think what Romney needs to do is get into Virginia and run for sheriff. This is not rocket science," Graham said Wednesday.
