Default Re: Rockin on the River...

I'm living in Israel now, so things here are hot and dry...quite different than Cuyahoga Falls.

I have a few more ideas that are very local...

-The pontoon boat (My first job was as a guide on that boat). That's a relaxing experience people pay for. Last I heard, though, this was it's last year...
- Swenson's. Need I say more?
-Soap box derby
- How about spending some time with the Amish? Have some sort of experience where you pay to be hosted by a family and live that life for a few days.
-I know there's an old Cold War bomb shelter under the high school. I would pay for the experience to go and see what's there.
- What about a tour of interesting homes? Like LeBron's house in Bath, Jeffrey Dahmer's childhood home, etc..Come to think of it there are a lot of interesting people/homes in that area!
-If you're dealing with foreigners, taking them to a Black Tigers football game would be a great's very Midwest Americana. Or to one of the high schools show choir contests ( I'm a former M&M's and loved that stuff)
- There was another restaurant up in the Flats (Cleveland) called Dick's the Last Resort. The servers were extremely rude as part of the package. That was always an experience.

Many of these seem very Americana...real America. If you could get some foreigners to want to see 'real America,' and not just touristy Disney World/NYC/Grand Canyon...our area would be great for that.

I'd like that Direct Marketers tour!!

PS- That's also known as 6 corners, right? By Chapel hill? Please send me a link to your homepage, I haven't seen it. I'm from 7th St by Lion's Park.

Thanks for reminder. The Mansfield Prison, I haven't done it but my kids have...right after some movie Blair Witch maybe??

There is this restaurant somewhere around that cuts your tie off...if you come wearing one...and another one that doesn't have eat with your hands...and the big BETCHA CAN'T EAT ONE...steak house that serves up gimungus cattle parts.

I see that people paid 200 bux a pop to see Elton John at Blossom...

And many people are making day trips to the Erie Casino.

We have plenty of Ghosts sites, including Mary Campbell's Cave...

And people come from all over the world to experience Firestone South...especially from Japan.

Let's brainstorm and see if we can adapt one of the 1200 or so experiences which Phil pointed out...and make it a Cuyahoga Falls experience.

Gordon (if you haven't read any of my stories on home page, I grew up at Barney's Busy Corners...Bailey Rd.)

PS. Maybe a Direct Marketers people where Gary Halbert wrote his famous Nancy letter, or where Dan Kennedy used to eat lunch, or tour Ben Suarez company, Quaker Oats bldg...and go to where the Bailey Road mansion used to stand (now a park)...and be a living book on MY childhood....HA!
