Stan Hywet Hall - Fairlawn (Akron/Cleveland Area) Ohio

I just want to give a plug for Stan Hywet Hall. I have been twice now and it really is a beautiful place and great for those looking for something to do within the Cleveland/Akron area. It's very worthwhile if you are on the fence.

It's basically the country estate of the family that started Goodyear Tire. It was built in 1915 and occupied until 1955. It's in the tudor style. You can get a ticket for just the gardens or the gardens and the manor house both. Definitely get both. The gardens are spectacular. There are the main gardens, an English garden and a Japanese garden. Today I took my in-laws from Scotland and we wandered around the gardens when they opened at 10 am and then went on a self-guided tour of the house. The house is very interesting and I find it different to see what they had in that time period, the 20s through the 50s, different than exploring old castles and palaces in Scotland (totally different time periods!). We spent about 3+ hours there and it was beautiful.

They also perform Shakespeare plays in the evenings during the summer, outside by the lagoons. You are allowed to bring a picnic and wine, etc. before the show starts and enjoy the gardens. I hope to do that next year.

It's only about 35 min south of Cleveland. Anyway just wanted to share!
