about the general area:
Buttermilk Falls is always fun to check out; there are plenty of folks from Peninsula here at Cuyahoga River. Time spent at Turkeyfoot Beach in close proximity to Cuyahoga River is always great, and a journey here wouldn’t be complete without a journey to close by Tinker's Creek State Park. This river is so wonderful. The slopes of Boston Mills are so inviting nobody can resist, and do put some time aside to spend at Brandywine Falls while you're here at Cuyahoga River. A journey to Portage Lakes State Park when you're here at Cuyahoga River is a great idea; dropping by Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area is just something you need to do if you haven't yet.
