Cleveland may be a great moving destination.

Cleveland may be a great moving destination.

If you are planning to bring your family and their moving boxes to Ohio, you may want to consider what you can do in order to keep busy once you are there. One of your destinations may be in the Cleveland area, and if this is the case, you are in luck. The city and surrounding areas are the home to many different fun locations where you can spend time with the family, or even by yourself. Once you examine some of the options, it may make it even easier to schedule a date with your moving company.

Cleveland Botanical Gardens
One place that could be a fun area to start exploring the city with your family is the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. The reason for this is that it is the home of the Hershey Children's Garden, which is the first garden made for young people in the Buckeye State, according to ClevelandParents.com. This could be a good spot because the venue is structured to benefit the childrens' learning experience. There are multiple exhibits in the area, and it could be a fun day trip for the whole family.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Brecksville
If you want to check out a scenic venue right outside of the city, it may be a good idea to travel south. About 30 minutes down the highway is the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This is quite a large national park - it totals 33,000 acres - and has close to 160 miles of trails that you can explore, according to Midwest Living.com. It also has a notable amount of natural beauty, as it is the home to many different waterfalls and varying terrain.

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, Bay Village
Another area that will allow families to experience the natural wonders of Ohio is the Lake Erie Nature & Science Center. This may be great for those who don't want to spend a lot of money, as according to ClevelandParents.com, it is free to visit every day. There are many different exhibits at the center, as families can seek out various tours and even a planetarium area. This is less than a half hour from Cleveland, so it could be an easy day trip.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
When hanging around the city, you can visit many different venues. One of the most famous in the city may be the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. According to MidwestLiving.com, it has a very unique design, as the structure is actually a glass pyramid. Head on inside, where you can not only learn about the most famous rock musicians in history, but you can actually see artifacts from their lives. Not only does this include items they made music with, but also more basic parts of their lives. This may be one of the most popular attractions in the area, and you may not want to miss out.

Greater Cleveland Aquarium
If your family is interested in sea life, it may be a good idea to see the wide array that is housed at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. This location has approximately 40 tanks that house a number of different animals, according to ClevelandParents.com. Everyone in the family can enjoy something at the aquarium, whether it is the small fish or the big sharks that are there. This is located right in the center of the city, so it may be easy to access from just about anywhere. The venue is large, so it may take a while to really appreciate everything located there.
