Best Place for Free Fun/ Best Spot to Take Wedding Photos: Cleveland Metroparks

There's no better place than the Cleveland Metroparks to bask in the glow of being ooey, gooey and newly married. With gardens, waterfronts and grasslands aplenty, the parks offer the perfect backdrop for taking precious once-in-a-lifetime photos that will surely generate some serious Facebook envy. But you need not be tied together in happily ever after to enjoy the Emerald Necklace. The Metroparks are free and fun for all, with more than 21,000 acres of trails and woods, water and picnic areas. Bike, run, golf, skip, jump, hacky-sack or ball your way through the park system that is positively one of Northeast Ohio's best assets and the object of jealousy for other city dwellers. If it can be done outside, you'll find it here.
