Best Patio for Communing With Nature and TV 

The Winking Lizard in Avon

All Winking Lizards are not created equal, but this more recent outpost in the venerable local chain has atmosphere to spare. Housed in a century-old roadhouse, the Avon Lizard is at its best when summer breezes throw open the doors to the spacious outdoor patio. Dubbed "The Back 40," the outdoor bar is literally built around a giant tree. In fact, there are so many trees covering the patio, finding shady relief from scorching temperatures is no kind of challenge at all. With a roof at the ready in case of rain, the patio bar features high-def TVs, making it a great place to catch a game and get a little fresh air. Open into the fall, the Lizard patio is a football lover's dream — though it won't help you get the leaves raked.

32045 Detroit Rd., Avon, 440-937-7612,
