This Ultimate Weekend Road Trip Will Take You Through The 13 Most Remarkable Sites In The Cleveland Metroparks

In a city, it’s easy to feel like you’re surrounded by an urban jungle. Concrete stretches as far as the eye can see, broken up only by striking skyscrapers and the hustle and bustle of traffic. There’s very little grass… or so it seems.

Cleveland and its surrounding area are absolutely overflowing with gorgeous public parks and reservations; natural areas that are only minorly impacted by the presence of humans. While these beautiful spaces are abundant and each is unique in its own way, a few sites in each area truly stand out. Prepare for the ultimate road trip, because we are about to head out on an adventure through the most remarkable places in the Cleveland Metroparks – or, as locals would say, the true gems of the Emerald Necklace.
