I have held 3 work events here over the years. They are very organized and make the planning process very easy! They use The Cuyahoga Group for their catering and their food is good. I buy the passes for everyone so they can enjoy the majority of the park. We also get a free scoop of ice cream with our package. They make it homemade and it is really good! Always a fun time!

The GNM gets super busy this time of year, and Starbucks' BOGO sale resulted in some congestion, but it wasn't insurmountable. The decision to place a ballet performance right in front of the Dick's store was questionable, however. We had to wade through and in front of parents trying to watch their kids perform and it seemed dangerous because we weren't sure we wouldn't get smacked in the face by a dancer! Just a bad logistics decision, especially considering that there were plenty of much better staging options.

But the store selection is good and staff was pleasantly surprising.

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course

It's not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a 'tree top adventure'.That means we build giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the world's best zip lines.We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and train

Very nice staff made demonstrations very easy to learn and understand. Smaller place but it was nice they way they regulate the amount of people that can be onthe coarse at once. Been to other zip lining places and there can be to many people on the course at one time which makes things go alot slower and cuts into your time. Likes how you can choose easier or harder obstacles. Tarzan swing is amazing they need a coarse with just like 10 of them. Good coarse for younger older and beginner's. Would recommend.

Cleveland Metroparks

Hop on a bicycle, lace up your running shoes or take your time strolling through any part of this scenic 60-mile long string of parks and garden areas.

There are multiple reservations/nature centers that make up the 'Emerald Necklace'. Each one is in a unique setting. It is truly a gem of Ohio- other states aren't as fortunate to have anything like this. If you have free time, I really recommend getting involved with one of their volunteer programs- great for high school students and adults of all ages.

SouthPark Mall

For shopping near Cleveland, the SouthPark Mall is a favored destination. The mall hosts Dillard's and Macy's department stores, over 175 restaurants and shops and a Cinemark movie theater in Strongsville, OH. Find the shopping center at Royalton and Howe, just west of I-71.

The SouthPark Mall located in Strongsville, Ohio is a trendy, upscale bi-level mall with over 200 establishments including stores, bars, restaurants, service providers, entertainment and fitness centers. The mall is located 1/2 mile from I-71 and Rt. 82. The mall is "walker-friendly" and allows indoor walking one hour before normal mall store hours, seven days a week, and almost every day of the year--save Easter and Christmas. The mall has private security as well as a Strongsville Police Department satellite station inside. The normal mall anchors are here: Macy's, Dillard's, J C Penney's and Sears. The mall and parking lot are well-lit and continually patrolled. The perimeter road of the mall has yet another circle of retail: The Cleveland Clinic Strongsville Family Health and Surgery Center, bars, restaurants and Planet Fitness.

This mall participates in a reward program called "Oh! So Rewards" managed by Spring Rewards. If you enter a credit card number, every time you hit $250 in purchases on that card, at SouthPark Mall, the program puts a $10 credit on your credit card statement. Easy-peasy. No coupons, gift catalogues or store credits. It adds up faster than you may think.

I have been at this mall about 3 or 4 days a week for four years, as I box and take classes at Empowering Punch, located on the second floor near Dick's Sporting Goods. I am there in the heat of summer as well as the dead of winter. In snow and ice. With Santa and the Easter Bunny. The social calendar of this mall is always full. Bridal Shows, Scouts sleep-over, Red Cross Blood Collections, play dates for the youngest, health fairs and the list goes on.

There is a toddler play area on the first floor (free), bungee jumping on the second floor (fee), a drop off babysitting play area near Macy's (fee) as well as a train ride (fee). Wheelchairs are available as are strollers for rent.

There is a food court on the second floor near the Cinema.

There is always something going on at SouthPark Mall. It is an easy way to shop, play and eat without going outside.

I stopped in here for dinner, while in town on business. The staff was very friendly and professional. The beer selection was good and very cold. The wings were fantastic... cooked to perfection, with just the right amount of sauce. I will definitely dine here again, next time I am in town!

My family has been visiting here for years & years. It never gets old. We have so much fun every time. I must admit the birthday party rooms need updating & more supervision for parties. That area has gone down hill GREATLY. We visit just for an afternoon of fun when in the area. I wish they would open one on the West side like they planned in Fairview Park. It's A MUST SEE/PLAY FOR ANY AGE! A+

The Brew Kettle

Reviewed By Kathy H - Medina, Ohio

First time dining here. Good service - food not so much. Ordered the salmon sliders which the server said was just ground salmon with maybe a little parsley. Unfortunately, it came with a very pungent fish odor and was filled with large chunks of raw onion and way too much green matter. Took one bite and sent it back. It was awful. The server asked the manager to take it off the bill and apparently the manager refused - no explanation. She dropped the bill off and walked away.
First and last time I'll be going there.

What a quaint area. I had driven by hundreds of times but never took the time to walk around and tour the area and its shops. I can't wait to go back. The quaint little town area and the historical buildings beautifully transformed into quaint shops and restaurants. Walk though the area on the cobblestone pathways while a park setting surrounds it. This will take the hustle bustle out of your day. Did I say quaint?

Rocky River Reservation

Reviewed By Ab42187 - West Carrollton, Ohio

Growing up in the Cleveland area, I had never been here until last summer when we went for a hike with my in-laws. My kids absolutely have a blast walking the main path and exploring everything around them. This year we didn't see many animals other then bird, but last year we saw tons of deer. The main path itself is very clear and well maintained. By far my kids love the nature center the most. The tree play area they have is amazing. There are so many wonderful details and my kids have a blast playing on it. It's also great to see the turtles and fish they have in the tanks. We always seem to get lucky and the turtles seem to be out swimming every time we are there. This is a great little area to explore when you are in the area.
