Rise and shine. Time to get-up and explore Wingfoot Lake State Park, or any one of our three (3) state parks. If you are staying in one of our hotels that have breakfast accommodations you are all set. If not, no worries, Brimfield Bread Oven is located just a few minutes from the area’s hotels and they offer a wonderful selection of pastries and coffee.

Wingfoot Lake State Park is a great place to stretch those legs and enjoy the fresh air.  The beauty of the Lake during any season just adds to the views.

If the snow has made an appearance, make sure you pack your sleds, Cranberry Creek Park in Brimfield offers a wonderful sledding hill, as well as Towner’s Woods in Kent.
