We know how tough it is to keep the family entertained, especially during the summer months. There is just so much time to fill!

It can get pricy going out to eat, though. That’s why we put together this list of nearby places where kids eat free. That way you can get out of the house without spending a lot. Take a look:

Bob Evans

Drop into our local Bob Evans on Tuesdays after 4pm, and kids eat free with the purchase of an adult entrée. If you like filling home style American food, Bob Evans provides it comfort food style – and when the kids can eat free, well, that’s a nice bonus!

Kids eat free on Wednesdays at PizzaFire locations, which includes a small pizza, apple sauce, and juice. And who doesn't love pizza?

Burntwood Tavern
5835 Landerbrook Dr, Lyndhurst

The Burntwood Tavern is a traditional local spot, with all that implies: great comfort, a good hometown feel, and satisfying food. If you want to take the family, remember that on Mondays kids eat free all day with the purchase of an adult meal.

Willoughby Brewing Company
4057 Erie St, Willoughby

Don’t let the “brewing company” part fool you: this is a family-friendly establishment with great food, including gourmet pizza and fantastic sandwiches. Kids under 12 eat free when a full-priced adult meal is purchased, so consider stopping by for a relaxing afternoon with the family.

McCormick & Schmick's Seafood

If you want a quick escape into the city, you don’t need to worry about spending a lot on a meal. Drop in on a weekend, and on Saturdays at McCormick & Schmick's, kids eat free with every adult entrée purchased.

4 Fun Spots Near Cleveland to Get Outside With Your Dog

May 2nd, 2018

dog parks near cleveland

There is nothing quite like summer in Northeast Ohio. Your dog thinks so, too, which is why it’s a great time of year to get out and spend an afternoon with them under the sun.

But where to go? After all, you can only stroll around the neighborhood so many times before you want to see something new.

That, and your dog wants off his or her leash! They want to run free! And that’s exactly why we put together this list – to give you four great spots in the region to take your dog on a nice summer afternoon.

Fair Harbor Dog Beach
301 Huntington Beach Dr, Fairport Harbor

If you want to enjoy a fun summer day out with your dog friend, there are few better places than Fair Harbor Dog Beach. Most of the park is a leashed area, but there is a leash-free beach where dogs can romp around in the sand, swim, and generally do all the fun stuff dogs love to do.

There are loads of amenities, including grills, restrooms, a playground, volleyball, and lots more. There is even a lighthouse and marine museum here, too, so it’s easy to make an entire afternoon of it. It’s an easy drive from Beachwood (where we are), so there is no excuse not to go!

Bow Wow Beach
5027 Stow Rd., Stow

Head down 271 and 80 into Stow and you’ll find Bow Wow Beach, a gorgeous 8-acre dog park surrounding a big 5-acre lake. Featuring beach areas, open grass to run around in, plenty of shade trees, a wash basin, waste stations and more, this has everything you could want from a dog park – including lots and lots of dogs!

If your dog likes to socialize, there are few better spots than Bow Wow, which is always full of friendly dogs for your furry friend to play with. And it’s just down the highway!

South Euclid Dog Park
699 S Belvoir Blvd, South Euclid

This park is kept in clean, pristine condition by its army of volunteers, which is especially nice for the pups who want to use the agility equipment there for their play. It's mostly gravel rather than grass, and there aren’t many shade trees, so bring extra water or utilize the water pump already on the grounds.

The dogs here tend to be well-behaved, which is a good thing, since it’s not divided into big dog and small dog areas.

Tremont Park
W 11th St & Clark Ave, Cleveland

Sometimes the thing you and your furry friend need the most is a day in the city. Even dogs like all the sights and sounds near downtown Cleveland! You won’t want to just go walking around aimlessly, though, so instead head for Tremont Park.

This gravel park has lots of benches so you can take a load off, a water fountain made for dogs, and more. The park is set next to open baseball fields, so you and your pet will be able to enjoy fresh air and openness even while right in the city.
