The Fast Lane Bar, Bowling and Party Center fosters wholesome family fun by hosting scores of activities beyond bowling. Its popular bar art parties invite guests to paint their own masterpieces on a 16"x20" canvas while enjoying food and drink specials during classes. Those looking to test their caper-solving skills can enlist in the plot-twisting action of Fast Lane Mysteries and discover whodunit on the glossy lanes.

Those same glossy lanes offer plenty of traditional bowling fun as well. Thunderous claps from strikes and subsequent high-fives reverberate through the facility five days a week during the summer, including until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, which outfit the facility with cosmic bouts. Boasting a lineup of happy hour specials, the newly renovated Garage Bar volunteers to whet whistles and topple appetites, and league and party options enable larger groups to plunder pins collectively or team up to take down rebellious bumpers in games of Red Rover.

Voted No. 3 on the 2011 Beacon’s Best for top movie theaters, Lake Cinemas 8 advertises a rotating octet of first-run films on a nostalgic marquee that heralds the refurbished theater's entryway. Viewers settle into comfy seats as they share puffed kernels of corn, sip sodas, and, as the lights dim, recall fond memories of tunneling into bank vaults. Visitors can choose from a selection of popular new releases or anxiously anticipate a bevy of coming attractions.

Parking: Parking lot

Most Popular Attraction/Offering: The Lake

Recommended Age Group: All Ages

The Lake's shores have served as a gathering spot for families seeking a bit of summer fun since 1955, when it was known as Loyal Oak Lake Park. Certified lifeguards monitor the lake where swimmers careen off diving platforms that rise out of the deeper water, or scramble down and up inflatable waterslides and an inflatable climbing rock closer to shore. Nearby tennis and basketball courts headline the activities on dry land, which also include mini golf, volleyball and batting cages. There's so much to do at the park that you may not want to go home, and, luckily, you don't have to. The groundskeepers maintain lush, shady campgrounds where families can pitch a tent to enjoy a night under the stars or spend an evening pondering what their house would look like with fresh sod in place of floors.

Inside, the business has transformed its historic dwelling into a modern-day showcase of Ohio-based artists, with more than 3,000 handmade works on display, from glass and ceramics to furniture and paintings. The gallery also shares its artistic prowess with the community during hands-on classes, including glass-making workshops that focus on paperweights, pendants, and beads.

In 1880, the final fasteners and sleepers on the Valley Railway were tightened into place. It wouldn’t be long before a billowing cloud of steam announced the arrival of the first train running through the Cuyahoga Valley, a territory that had served as a passageway for foot traffic for thousands of years. Over the next century, the railway contributed to the growth of commerce between Akron and Cleveland, changing ownership multiple times, and transforming from a freight train, into a passenger train, back to a freight train, and finally into a UFO.

Now celebrating its 41st year of passenger-rail service, the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad transports sightseers over the historic rails through 33,000 acres of land owned by the National Park Service. With a year-round roster of trips, including wine- and beer-tasting excursions, passengers can set forth on morning, afternoon, and evening journeys that sweep past meadowlands, pinery, and rivers and give glimpses of native wildlife, such as fox, deer, bobcat mascots, and owls.
