Best Scenic Drive

Valley Parkway, through the Rocky River Reservation

The Rocky River Reservation is to Cleveland what Central Park is to New York. Follow a winding road through acres of scenic vistas that include shale cliffs and deep flood-plain forests. On any warm day, you'll find people fishing, playing catch, sunbathing with a good book -- anything but working. The reservation includes three golf courses, five ball fields, and the 13-mile Valley Parkway Trail. At night, drive slowly and keep an eye out for the many white-tailed deer that make the reservation their home.
