With summer lurking right around the corner, locals are starting to feel the effects of summer fever. We’re all longing for a day or two spent in the sun with family and friends, but we’ll also soon be longing for a shady escape from the Northeastern Ohio sun. Fortunately, there are plenty of lovely places in and around Cleveland that offer a bit of both.
