The Blossom Glen community in Cuyahoga Falls is conveniently located between Cleveland and Akron and we are fortunate to have some great neighbors!
Just two miles to the west of us are three great neighbors. The first is Blossom Music Center, summer home of the Cleveland Orchestra and host to a full summer schedule of popular music acts and symphonic performances.
Blossom Music Center is an amphitheatre with pavilion seating for 5,700 people and space for about 13,500 more on the lawn. Over the years we have enjoyed many fine concerts there from Pink Floyd to the Cleveland Orchestra and everything in between. One of our favorite things to do is go on the Fourth of July with family and friends, pack a picnic and a few bottles of wine and watch the Blossom Festival Band perform patriotic favorites concluding the evening with the 1812 Overture complete with fireworks.
Blossom is located within the boundaries of another of our great neighbors, The Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The Park preserves and reclaims the rural landscape along the Cuyahoga River between Akron and Cleveland in Northeast Ohio. The 51 square mile park is the only national park in Ohio.
Though a short distance from the urban environments of Cleveland and Akron, Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away. The winding Cuyahoga—the "crooked river" as named by American Indians—gives way to deep forests, rolling hills, and open farmlands. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna, gives a sense of times past, and provides recreation and solitude for Ohio's residents and visitors.
And, our 3rd great neighbor is Sarah's Vineyard conveniently located directly across the street from Blossom Music Center. Sarah's has been in operation since the spring of 2003. Visitors are not only able to purchase wines bottled from grapes grown on the vineyard, but also take part in several other offerings provided.
In addition to great wines and a fine food selection along with a relaxing atmosphere, Sarah's hosts a variety of events throughout the year. Our favorite is the Annual Summer Solstice Wine, Art, and Blues Festival......scheduled this year for June 17th through June 19th. It's a fun time. Be there if you can.
And remember..........great neighbors make for great times!
