An excellent day trip 55 mi/90 km south from Cleveland, Canton is home to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, one of Ohio's most popular attractions. Housed in a vaguely football-shaped structure (designed by the highly influential architectural firm of Venturi, Rauch, Scott and Brown), the Hall of Fame offers gridiron fans a chance to relive some of the most famous moments in the sport's history. Induction ceremonies are held in August.
Pencil in a few hours for the McKinley Museum of History, Science and Industry, which has lots of interactive exhibits, as well as a planetarium (a good bet for the kids). History buffs will want to see the McKinley National Memorial, where you'll find the tombs of the 25th U.S. president and his family, and the National First Ladies' Library.
Also, take a quick look at the Canton Classic Car Museum and the Hoover Historical Center, which documents the invention and development of the vacuum cleaner.
