We stopped in to ask about the area. What should we see, eat, do, etc? They were very nice and took their time answering our questions. If you stop, don’t forget to get your passport stamped.

Stopped at the Boston store visitor center to get information. Staffed with friendly helpful rangers. You can also get your passport book stamped there for four different places. Nice River view and trail.

We stopped at this visitor center while at Cuyahoga National Park. The center is housed in an historic building, with a nice porch. It isn't very large inside, but we enjoyed looking at the few displays. Outside you can walk along the nearby towpath along...More
