Our first time at the manor and it was spectacular! We went for the afternoon self-guided tour of the manor house and greenhouse, conservatory and rain forest, it was absolutely stunning. Parking is very easy you walk over to the admission and get your ticket and they have a gift shop and a small eatery and then you walk to the manor house, it’s three stories and you can walk outside to the gardens, the conservatory greenhouse. In all we spent about three hours there, but it was freezing cold and they did have warming stations but we didn’t do a lot of the outside stuff they do have a large kids play area outside during nice weather. You get a nice booklet with a map and there’s volunteers everywhere around the manor and outside if you have questions, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful! We would definitely go again.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Reviewed By Ruth G - Columbia, MD

Built during the Roosevelt administration by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the wood and stone Happy Days Lodge located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a great place for a large party. It’s rustic but comfortable with one large function room and a slightly smaller group space. We attended a family function here and enjoyed the lodge, the first-rate sound system, and the valet parking. The food was catered, and there were enough wait staff for speedy delivery of food and clean up.

Brandywine Falls

Reviewed By lilirishstar - North Canton, Ohio

Easy to get to, just minutes off of Route 8, to a nice big parking lot. Then an easy short walk on an impressive boardwalk/ viewing platform trail way. There is an outdoor restroom in the parking lot and 2 trail heads for longer 1.5 mile loop trails. The gorge is steep and tree lined. The falls are impressive and viewable from several spots.

Ledges Overlook

Reviewed By Andi-BrownCounty - Gnaw Bone, Indiana

We spent a couple of days at Cuyahoga Valley National Park and did 4 hikes. This was our only non-waterfall hike and it was our favorite. The cliffs and rock formations are endlessly fascinating, the woods are very pretty, and the CCC built stairs are worth a look all on their own. If you want to shorten the hike you can come back across the meadow from the Overlook but it would be a shame to do so.

You could do this hike in an hour or so but we all took so many pictures and kept going into the little side rock formations that it took us almost 2 hours to do it.

Furnace Run Metro Park

Reviewed By BobMinchak - New York City, New York

This is a nice little part of the Metro Parks system with a creek draining into the Cuyahoga River. You can picnic, walk the trails, or wander aimlessly through the woods and never get lost. If you don't see any deer, you are not looking. There are also a lot of wild Turkey, foxes and coyotes in the area and can be seen from time to time.

Ultimate Escape Challenge

The Ultimate Escape Challenge is a live escape adventure designed for groups of families, friends, co-workers, and game enthusiasts. Teams must work together to attack tasks, solve riddles, crack codes, and locate clues to escape the room in less than one hour.

Reviewed By Andrea B - Massillon, Ohio

My friend purchased a Groupon for this escape room and did all the booking for our group of 12 (6 adults and 6 children, ages 8-16), so I can't comment on customer service when booking. But we walked in and everyone was friendly and it was all very professional! We had our own waiting room to sign the waivers and just chill before we started. They were about 10 min (no big deal) and they were very apologetic, but we really didn't mind. We did the Chaotic Classroom, and for the first 25 minutes, I really didn't think we'd "escape!" But then things started falling in place and we made it out with 10 min to spare! It was challenging, but very logical. (We did use all 3 of our hints tho!) This is my second escape room and everyone else's first. We all loved it! The girl in charge of our group was very very nice! She took our group picture to put on the wall since we were successful, and even offered to take pictures with some of our phones. I highly recommend Chaotic Classroom!

If take the train from the Akron Station, be prepared. It is just a small building with no restrooms. There are porta johns that are nasty full. The train ride was ok, way over priced. My small grandkids got about 10 minutes of entertainment out of the 3+ hour ride.

My kids love going to the Nature Realm and walking through the woods and running around in the grass. I love that they have free events for kids on Thursdays during the summer. You can also feed the birds which is always a highlight for my kids.

The Boneyard- Broadview Heights

Reviewed By Stan5107 - United Kingdom

Could be a better start - tried twice, Chili was supposed to be good, but not a lot of flavor and not served hot. Wings that should have been rubbed prior to cooking had a small tablespoon container of dry rub on the side. Could have been good, but I'll never know. Chicken was so dry on the outside (and inside) the rub would not stay on the wings. Service is hit an miss. had to walk to bar both times to find someone to get the check. Could be a good place to miss.

Brecksville Reservation

Reviewed By Anne-Marie P - Ohio

Part of the Cleveland Metropark, the Brecksville reservation is a wonderful park system of paved hiking trails, cleared wood trails amidst soaring trees, horse trails, picnic pavilions and an interpretive nature center with knowledgeable and welcoming rangers. Oh yes, and one impressive rocky shallow rive, Chippewa Creek< that is such a joy for rock-skipping.

The intimacy of the trails and the open expanse of its lower area makes Brecksville a wonderful place for not just hiking, but also playing frisbee with your dog, letting your children run around, or just lay on the grass and listen to the multitude of birds chirping in the trees. Benches line the trails for occasional respite, as do work-out stations with beams, chains and posted exercise guidelines.
By Chippewa road, and through out, map trails and history posters enhance the park-going experience.
All these trails and forest management are under the care of the phenomenal Cleveland Metroparks. Brecksville is but gem in their incredible Emerald Necklace. The other gems are as lovely and breathtaking.
