Northeast Ohio is bursting with attractions for the whole family. Whether venturing North, East, South, or West, you are always close to fun and entertainment in Streetsboro, Ohio.
Centrally located, this family community offers visitors an opportunity to take in all the excellent sights and sounds of the area. But narrowing down which direction and what adventure interests you most is the hard part.
Streetsboro Family Days, held July 27th-30th, is a long-standing tradition in the area. This Free Four-day event draws crowds from near and far with live concerts, fireworks, a beer garden, and more. This event is an opportunity for individuals to gather and enjoy the hospitality and generosity the area is known for.
Pure Passions Farm is a popular new addition to the excitement around Streetsboro, located a few minutes down the road in Kent. Who can resist checking out a place with the motto, “come for the Alpacas and stay for the sunsets.”
Owners Scott Sigga and Max have more in store than just iterating with the alpacas. They invite you onto their farm, where you can Party with the Alpacas, Tour the Farm, or rent the facilities for a special event, plus much more.
If it’s the sunset you are looking for, they offer an intimate evening for you and three guests to enjoy the alpacas while watching one of Northeast Ohio’s stunning sunsets. Or perhaps the campfire package or yoga with goats and alpacas is appealing. There is something here for everyone. Check out their webpage at Pure Passions Farm for all the activities and details.
TimberBeast Axe Throwing
Grab your date, friends, or family, and head to TimberBeast Axe Throwing.
Once you try it, you will wonder why you never did this. Axe throwing makes a fun first date and is rapidly growing in popularity, and best of all, it is a great stress reliever.
Although it sounds dangerous, it isn’t. The blade is designed to penetrate the wood with a strong impact but is not razor sharp, with little risk of cutting yourself if you handle the axe with respect.
TimberBeast Axe Throwing offers lane rentals and seasonal leagues. According to Manager Stefan Karakis, you don’t need to know how to axe throw. It’s not about how hard you throw but how you throw.” The staff is readily available for assistance, tips, and safety lessons.
Anyone aged 11 and up can participate, making it a great family activity. A snack bar on the premises offers items such as paninis, hot dogs, and pretzels. However, save room for the Craft Milkshakes made with high-quality, Ohio-made ice cream. The combinations will blow your mind, and if the axe throwing isn’t enough excitement, the shakes will have you coming back again and again.
