Bird Watching & Wildlife Cleveland Metroparks Naturalist Jen Brumfield has highlighted seven of our area’s favorite spots for you to discover from the shores of Lake Erie to Metroparks Reservations.
Family Outings Look it’s a bird, and another bird and there’s a beaver! Outings are naturally fun in the Canalway whether traveling along the Towpath or visiting the new African Elephant Crossing exhibit at the Cleveland Zoo!
Heritage Find your inner historian, from the Rock Hall of Fame and the Mather Museum to canal-era history & industrial roots at the Leonard Krieger Canalway Center in the Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation. Or point your cultural tuning fork towards beautiful University Circle – home to a multitude of museums and gardens.
On Foot Whether seeing history come to life on “Take a Hike” tours in downtown Cleveland, running in any one of the Towpath Trilogy events, or finding a lunchtime getaway along the Towpath near Thornburg Station — there’s so much waiting for you...
Rails The northernmost terminus for the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad’s 51-mile Canalway journey can be found at the Rockside Station. However, it’s closed until mid-summer for improvements. Head one stop south to the Canal Visitor Center on Canal Road.
Byway Driving North of Canal Road and Granger – you can follow three signed routes on the America’s Byway — through working steel mills, Cleveland’s Public Square, or along the historic route running past the West Side market. South of Granger, on Canal Road, follow the signs to key Canalway sites all the way to our southern border.
