Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens

Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens is open April-December. Located in Akron, Ohio, is the former home of F.A. Seiberling, the co-founder of The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, and his family. Completed in 1915, Stan Hywet is the one of the most important remaining examples of an American Country Estate built by the wealth created during the Industrial Age at the turn of the twentieth century, when the emergence of modern America made Akron the "Rubber Capital of the World." The Tudor revival Manor House is 64,500 sq. feet and the 6th largest home open to the public in the U.S. Open from April through December, Stan Hywet includes a 65-room Manor House, a conservatory and more than 70 acres of artfully landscaped ground. It is Akron's oldest National Historic Landmark and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

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.

Get ready for this winter's indoor fun house. My nieces and nephews love this place. Fun and stuff have activities for the young, not so young and all in between. From bumper cars, to skating, on to the batting cages and finish off with laser tag, rock climbing or the bumper cards. Cold drinks and food available. Great way to burn off energy from the grandkids! They will be plum tuckered out when they leave. :-) Grest game room also!

Hudson Springs Park

Reviewed By MWK51 - Hudson, Ohio

there is something for everyone at this community park. The lake provides opportunities for boating, kayaking, and fishing. (Bring your own equipment, there are no rentals).
Children seem to love the play ground, there are shelters for group picnics, tables and grills available. The hiking trail around the lake is a favourite of all ...some running, some taking a leisurely stroll, It is a beautiful spot just to sit by the lake and relax.

I've put off concerts at the Rocksino for years, but finally snagged some cheap tix and was anxious to really check it out. Venue was easy access/parking. Crowd moved easily through very efficient concert entrance and beer/wine service area. Restrooms very handy. Ushers were great....MoreHi Dave, thank you for taking the time to write this review.

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.

Had our sons birthday party here, was great fun for both the children and the adults 22 jumpers in our party. We were pleased with the option to rent private court for any members of our party to do as they please. Everyone had a blast, only disappointment was not enough time to get through everything...they enjoyed the pizza and cake but no time to open presents with his friends.

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.
