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.

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.

Although The Canal Fulton Glassworks opened in 2009, the timber-framed structure that it inhabits was built nearly two centuries ago. 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.
