Thank you for making last weekend’s Art in the Village Festival such a huge success! Next up: The 10th Anniversary of the Crocker Park Fine Art Fair with Craft Marketplace. As we move from celebrating 25 years of festivals at Legacy Village to commemorating 10 years of art at beautiful Crocker Park in the outskirts of Cleveland, we encourage you to take in the sights and sounds that surround this area and make the most out of your weekend.

If you’re looking for an extra dose of artistic inspiration, Cleveland has plenty of it to spare. The Cleveland Museum of Art is a must-see major attraction for the entire family. Ditto to the famous Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, especially if you’re traveling with music fans. But for those craving some interesting and slightly offbeat art, places like the Warther Museum in Dover and the American Sign Museum in Cincinnati have you covered.

How about taking in some natural beauty? One of the world’s marvels resides right in Cleveland. See the Frozen Cleveland Lighthouse in Lake Erie for yourself, or take a stroll through the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. You can also take in some nature trails and native wildlife at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park & Scenic Railroad, between Cleveland and Akron.

Interested in a little adventure of the weird kind? Nearby Lyndhurst is known for its many “haunted” places, where local folks have registered unusual paranormal activity. Sound a little strange, maybe a little like bringing Halloween to your summer fun? Check out HauntedPlaces.org, take a look at some of the places in the area that have some strange happenings and, if you’re up to it, have a little haunted fun.
