11 Lesser-Known State Parks Around Cleveland That Will Absolutely Amaze You

They say Cleveland is the Best Location in the Nation, and we locals can attest to that. It seems our region has a little bit of everything – great food, gorgeous architecture, and friendly faces are all defining features of our community. You may have also noticed that public parks make up the backbone of this dreamy region. In fact, there are 24 State Parks within 100 miles of Cleveland, but many are destinations you’ve likely never even heard of. We’ve organized this list by distance, but even the parks located farther away from Cleveland are worth the short journey to experience them.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
