157. Cuyahoga Valley National Park – Brecksville, OH

Although this park doesn’t have the grandeur of Yosemite NP or Rocky Mountain NP, it was just a short drive from our home base in Cleveland and the entire reason we came to Ohio for a long weekend.

155. East Fourth Street District – Cleveland, OH

Located on the Ohio shores of Lake Erie, the 7 levels of this amazing piece of architecture include exhibits on the roots of rock and roll (gospel, blues, rhythm & blues and folk, country and bluegrass) and the rock […]
