Heading to SAA in Cleveland and bringing the kiddos along? There will be no complaints about boredom in this family-friendly city, which boasts a ton of activities and sites for children of all ages.

Home to a zoo, science center, and aquarium, Cleveland has the ticket to mix summer fun with learning in a way that the kids will be too busy to notice! The area also boasts great local shopping, food venues, and museums for the kid in all of us, including the famous Big Fun Toy Store and the popular A Christmas Story House and Museum.

Theme park lovers will also find a lot to love, with several water parks (Kalahari and Castaway Bay) and Cedar Point, known as the “Roller Coaster Capital of the World,” just a short drive away.
