The Cuyahoga Valley National Park protects 33,000 acres along the banks of the Cuyahoga River. Though such a short distance from urban environments, the park is worlds away. The winding Cuyahoga -- the "crooked river," as Native Americans called it -- gives way to rolling floodplain, steep valley walls, ravines, and lush upland forests. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna, and provides both recreation and solitude for Northeastern Ohio residents and visitors.

A ride aboard this scenic railroad is a treat for all ages as it ambles through the rolling terrain of the Cuyahoga Valley. The vintage, climate-controlled cars, originally built in 1939 and 1940 for the Seaboard and Sante Fe railroads, have been converted to make scenic excursions to different destinations, including Hale Farm and Village, Quaker Square, Inventure Place, and more. Seasonal trips commemorate Maple Sugar Days, Valentine's Day, and the stunning fall foliage.

A half-hour drive from downtown Cleveland, the park features water slides, a wavepool, picnic grove, and kiddie amusement rides.

Fighting desperately to maintain his sobriety, Bill immediately reacted, by saying, "I've got to find another alcoholic." Starting in an upstairs room at Dr. Bob's home, the two men began helping alcoholics, one person at a time. The house is now known as the home of Alcoholics Anonymous.
Deep in the tradition of the area, this course demands a shotmaker's accuracy.
