In addition to visiting Cuyahoga Valley National Park during Easter weekend, we spent approximately 1-1/2 hours in Chagrin Falls, OH. On Saturday, April 15, we left Cuyahoga Valley National Park and drove to Chagrin Falls, arriving there at noon. We ate lunch at Flip Side. Bob ordered a Black ‘n Blue burger; I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. We shared an order of onion rings. Lunch was delicious; our waitress was efficient and friendly. We would return to this restaurant.
After lunch we checked out the waterfall that gives Chagrin Falls its name.
There are two vantage points from which to see Chagrin Falls, one on each side of the falls. A boardwalk leads down to an observation platform from each vantage point.
Do you see the boardwalk on the opposite side of the falls? The first three photographs of the falls were taken from various points along that boardwalk. The white building that you see above the falls is the Popcorn Shop.
Here is a short video that I took of Chagrin Falls from the second vantage point. If you are not able to view the embedded video, the direct link may be found by clicking here.
Did you happen to notice anything that is in the video, but not in the photograph? Look in the tree to the left of the waterfall. The blue material, shown in the video, is missing in the photograph. It was an easy edit to remove that distraction from the photograph. It is possible to edit the video as well, but I forgot to do so!
After photographing the waterfall, we stopped at the village’s famous Popcorn Shop for a vanilla custard cone. According to reviews, the Popcorn Shop has three of the best things on earth: popcorn, coffee and ice cream. I had looked forward, since we left on our weekend getaway, for a custard ice cream cone. The custard ice cream was as good as I remembered it from other visits to Chagrin Falls…so rich and creamy; delicious!.
As we were preparing to leave Chagrin Falls, I spotted the Easter Bunny. We delayed our departure a few minutes, while I photographed the Easter Bunny.
I hope that you enjoyed following along on our Easter vacation in Ohio with visits to Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Chagrin Falls.
