Best Family Outing

Cedar Point

It’s America’s Roller Coast, of course. For pure family friendly adrenaline and thrills, it’s hard to find a better spot in the entire country. Thankfully, Cedar Point is just a stone’s throw down I-90 for us Clevelanders. The fine folks who run the place take great care of its legacy and future — adding new attractions all the time and preserving the best stuff from the past. (It says something that the Raptor and the Magnum remain two of the best rides at the park.) Children of all ages and sizes will find something fun capturing their eye. Keep them on a leash or let them run wild: You can easily pick up a Parent of the Year award with a surprise trip to the Point.
