Cle bee here! Chagrin is mostly shopping and Yuppie. No sking in March. You could hit up the rock and roll hall of fame. It’s off the lake in downtown. Most wineries are in Geneva which is a real NE Ohio gem about 40 min away. Cuyahoga valley scenic rail is neat. They do special nights like wine and beer tastings. Not sure if they’re running right now because of a bald eagle nest that is supposedly being built. If you went to the rock hall then you should stop by the west side market. I’ll keep thinking for you!

Football Fans? The Pro Football Hall of Fame is in Canton (about 45-50 min away from Chagrin Falls). I hate the outdoors so I cant think of any recommendations regarding that. The rock and roll hall of fame is in cleveland if that seems like a fun thing for you guys. 

 

Chagrin is a really cute little town, there are lots of little shops and restaurants!

we have a decent st patty’s day parade in downtown cle if you will be here march 17th. you may be lucky with the weather, it could be 25 or 75, sunny ot snowy, any day in march 🙂

the yelp board is pretty active for cleveland and you will get some good suggestions there

try the west side market, ohio city for some of the best restaurants in town

whilst in chargin, check out the iconic popcorn shop, chagrin falls (water falls, literally), jeni’s splendid ice cream

the art museum is newly renovated and a pretty neat site (and free). very close to little italy (which is little). you should pop up to Corbo’s for some Cleveland style cassata cake

On Coventry Rd, there is the very neat store Big Fun if you are interested in old vintage toys and games. 

the rock hall is cool, but expensive and best if you are really into music

I’m from Cleveland! There are some skiing places a bit south (like a 20 min drive) – called Boston Mills/Brandywine. 

There is a great Botanical Garden closer to downtown, some museums very close to the gardens as well. 

The West side has a lot of great restaurants… Closer to downtown isn’t he Great Lakes Brewery which is a lot of fun and our most famous brewery! They have pretty good food and great beer, and you can get a sampler of their most popular beers for pretty cheap. It’s in a fun area right next to West Side Market which is really cool and has its own brewery and restaurant now called Market Garden Brewery. You could definitely make an afternoon/evening out of shopping at West Side Market and then getting dinner and drinks at either/both breweries. Taking a taxi back would probably cost about $30, otherwise it’s about a half hour drive from Chagrin Falls. 

Another poster mentioned all of the awesome things to do in Chagrin Falls including Jenis ice cream. 

I used to live in little Italy and the food is pretty good, but it’s mainly the desserts that make it awesome! Presti’s is great and has such good tiramasu, and is across the street from Corbos which mainly has cake and cannolli. 

Hope you guys have fun!

I’ve been there on business.  The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is pretty interesting.

@beachchicbride:  I agree on the wineries if you’re into that. It’s a little bit of a drive, but it’s so pretty out there.. it’s in the “country” and they’re all pretty close to each other (maybe 5-10 minute drive from each other) and they have fabulous cheap wine! That’s our favorite thing to do in the summer.. you may get lucky & it’ll be warm. Last year on St Pat’s day we were all outside on the patios at bars in shorts & tshirts, it was that nice! But then again, it could be 30! Chagrin is cute.. but there’s a lot more to do outside of it.

In addition to West Side Market (is that all back up and running after the fire, btw?), I recommend getting yourself to one of Michael Symon’s B-Spot locations. Literally the BEST burger I have ever had. EVER. I dream about that burger…

I’m not from OH but I’ve been there a few times and I LOVE Cleveland. If you go to the Rock Hall you can just walk over a few blocks (mile-ish?) to 4th St and there are good restaurants over there. There’s like a town square area with some cool historic statues and stuff. I’m from Arizona and things on this coast are totally different here, I seriously daydream about my next trip to Ohio haha!
