  • Astorhurst Country Club
    There are parkland golf courses, and then there are golf courses set within the US National Parks System. The 18-hole layout at Astorhurst Country Club abuts Tinkers Creek in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, where it immerses golfers in picturesque surroundings while challenging them to hit their way over elevation changes, think through strategic quandaries, and ignore cloud formations just begging to be interpreted. At 6,138 yards, the course doesn't overwhelm anyone with extreme length, relying instead upon challenges to shot-shaping, control, and discipline that keep the course accessible to every level of golfer.

  • Carried Away Recreation
    Carried Away Recreation specializes in serene moments. Its customers can paddle a solo kayak down a gentle river where they glean a swath of green leaves. They can race across the Amish countryside on a bike rental and stop after mile five for a glass of Zinfandel from a local winery. If they want to take to the outdoors with friends, they rent a double kayak or a series of inner tubes to make floating a social experience. Cardio kayaking classes also blend natural beauty with physical exertion as a guide leads paddlers down twists in the river while shouting out Simon Says commands.

    Customers at West River Kayak & Canoe take their pick from a fleet of kayaks, canoes, and standup paddleboards to cruise down the 27-mile Vermilion-Lorain Water Trail, a Class I–II waterway. Turtles, beavers, and deer make their homes along the banks and occasionally dart out to greet travelers as shale cliffs rear up in the distance. The shop's staff ensures that even boating newbies can wend their way through the picturesque scenery by offering introductory tutorials before each rental to impart the basics of paddling, from how to turn to how to rub two paddles together to make a fire for roasting hot dogs.

  • Cobble Hills Golf & Ski Club
    Cobble Hills Golf & Ski Club has seen a lot of changes since it first opened as Skee-Hi alpine ski resort in 1963. What started as a humble chalet, two T-bars, and four rope tows has blossomed into an updated facility spanning 110 gently rolling acres framed by pristine pine forests. After a total renovation and the addition of the David Gurd–designed par 70 golf course in 1990, the ski club was enhanced with a quad chairlift, grooming equipment, and upgraded lighting. The intermediate hill has also been reshaped into an 800-foot-long snow-tubing area complete with a magic-carpet lift, which tows visitors up 100 vertical feet—the same height as most young yetis’ tree houses. The resort's new name reflects the rugged terrain: rocky hills and boulders add bucolic charm to views of the London skyline to the southwest and the Oxford County countryside to the southeast.
