Best Place to Get Your Zen On/ Best Place for a Run, Hike or Bike Ride

Cleveland Metroparks

The Cleveland Metroparks is the place to go for any physical, emotional or spiritual exercise because, well, with 25 unique reservations and hundreds of wooded and paved trails, it's basically as accessible as a brewery in downtown Cleveland, and, we'd bargain, twice as nice looking. You can pick up practically any outdoor hobby here. Snowshoeing? Check. Horseback riding? Check. Using your dog as a wingman to talk to pretty ladies? Check. And bonus: The majority of all Metroparks activities are gratis.
