The Toboggan Park Near Cleveland That Will Make Your Winter Unforgettable
As Northeast Ohio cools down, many locals prefer to retreat into the cozy comfort of their homes. While cozying up under a blanket does sound inviting, such inactivity can result in cabin fever. Clevelanders know this sickness all too well – the landscape appears gray and dull, and it feels there is nothing to do outdoors now that winter has arrived. Of course, this is a mere state of mind. The truth is that our landscape becomes a winter wonderland as temperatures drop and snow arrives, particularly in the eternally lovely Cleveland Metroparks.
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The Chalet can be found at 6200 Valley Pkwy. in Strongsville, tucked in the wilderness between Routes 42 and 82. For more information, visit the Cleveland Metroparks’ website here.
