Cuyahoga Falls is a small city along the Cuyahoga River with various attractions, fun activities, plenty of parks, aquatic centers, a river cruise, and entertainment downtown.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a beautiful area for hiking with 125 miles of trails, on which you can also bicycle and go horseback riding. The Cuyahoga River draws visitors to fish, canoe and kayak, or look for birds with hundreds of species native to or passing by the area. You can also see the parkland from a scenic train ride with the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad or from a boat with the Falls River Cruise. In winter, activities include ice fishing on the river, or skiing, sledding, snow tubing, and snowshoeing.
Gorge Metro Park is another outdoor wilderness waiting to be explored, with great trails and Mary Campbell's Cave, an old Native American shelter. For splashy fun check out Water Works Family Aquatic Center, an outdoor water park with a lazy river, slides and waterfalls. For shopping, dining, and culture, head to the Falls River Square District where you'll find a historic clock tower plus shops, antiques, boutiques, coffee shops, art galleries and restaurants.
Summertime will be pleasant for the water park and river activities in the area, plus June and July host different festivals held in the square district.
