You Can Visit The Small Towns Near Cleveland That Inspired A Live Action Scooby-Doo! Movie

Ohio is a mysterious place. Not only does this area account for some unusual historical happenings (like a cross-state UFO chase involving a team of police officers), we’re also next to what is arguably the spookiest of the Great Lakes. With a name like Erie, it’s no wonder that this area purportedly hosts Scooby-Doo’s fictional hometown, though one would not necessarily assume that Scooby-Doo and Cleveland have anything in common.

When A Pup Named Scooby-Doo premiered, we learned that the famously-nomadic Scooby Gang call a quirky town named Coolsville home. This swell place is where the gang grew up, and in Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster, we learned that Coolsville is just miles away from Lake Erie’s shore. Prepare to connect with your inner super sleuth, because you just might want to fuel up the Mystery Machine and investigate these eerie communities.
