Peninsula: Ohio’s Day-Trip Gem

While Ohio is filled with many day-trip worthy towns, the following are worth a special look.

One of Ohio’s most gorgeous towns, as far as nature goes, is at the center of our own nation park, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Peninsula is perfect for a summer time out door adventure because of its unique positioning. You won’t want to miss out. It isn’t your typical town and in reality there is more than a days-worth of exploring to do.

While Peninsula was established long ago, the park is less than 20 years old. Autumn, Spring, Summer–you can’t go wrong visiting this town almost any time of year. Much of its history has been preserved and is waiting for you to explore it. The town also contains the Everett Covered Bridge, the last in Summit County.

The Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath takes hikers and bikers close to downtown Peninsula. So, the town is a great option for a overnight stop on longer adventures.

Whether you are packing the family in your SUV or getting there under foot power, you’ll want to check out the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. This beautiful train ride takes you through the heart of the National Park. And finally, you’ll probably want to visit Brandywine Falls waterfall before you leave!


See you in Peninsula!
