Why? Weekends!

We had lots of family-centered fun this weekend! Let’s get right to it:

Birthday Party at Greater Cleveland Aquarium

On Saturday morning, Jeffrey and I went to a birthday party for one of his school friend’s at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium.

We’ve been to the Aquarium several times, but never for a birthday party. I was really impressed with everything the party included. There was a party room with a submarine the kids could play in, crafts for the group, pizza and cake, and even a visit from a turtle!

The party also included admission to the Aquarium for the kids to check out all the sea critters. What a fun morning!

Fall Flyer

On Sunday, we hopped aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad for their Fall Flyer trip.

The Fall Flyer is a two-hour, non-stop ride that takes you though the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to take in the beautiful fall foliage.

We rode on the Silver Lariat, one of the new California Zephyr cars. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad recently added four cars from the California Zephyr line which have dome seating; luxurious seats; tables; and more amenities.

 

We enjoyed taking in the fall sights, including changing leaves, the Cuyahoga river, lots of bikers and runners on the Towpath, and tons of people visiting Szalay’s pumpkin patch. We also enjoyed tasty snacks like hot dogs and popcorn from the dining car.

Every time we take the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, I’m so impressed with the volunteers who work as Conductors, Trainmen, and more. They truly make the experience so enjoyable!

The fall colors will only continue to become more striking, which makes the Fall Flyer a perfect choice for a fall weekend activity. The Fall Flyer runs every Saturday and Sunday in October at 9:45am and 1:30pm from the Rockside Station and 11:30am and 3:30pm from the Akron Northside Station. Tickets start at $25 per person.

***Disclosure: I was invited to take a ride on the Fall Flyer and received three complimentary tickets. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***

That was our weekend, aside from watching lots of Cleveland sports, of course! How was yours?
