Canalway Sampler: Girls Night Out

First on the agenda? Girls Night Out Akron, where you and your pals will enjoy an evening out exploring all the Ohio & Erie Canalway has to offer in downtown Akron.

Start your evening with a relaxing walk along the trails of Cascade Locks Park. This historic area of the Ohio & Erie Canal is a must-see. With interpretive signs along the paths, telling the story of this dynamic Canal-era site, you and your gal pals will learn something about your city's past while taking in the beautiful landscapes.

A short 9-minute drive will bring you to Akron Glassworks, Akron's public access hot glass studio. Do some shopping - where all items sold are handmade on site - or make a treasure of your own at one of their popular workshops. Check their website for registration details.

End your evening one mile down the road at Akron's popular Bricco Restaurant. With an extensive wine collection, daily specials, and eclectic decor, Bricco is the perfect location to unwind with friends.
