There is no shortage of options when it comes to seeing the outdoors. From climbing up cliffs and hiking through forests to tubing down rivers and fishing in lakes, Ohio offers limitless ways to spend time enjoying nature.

In this article, we'll talk about one of the most unique ways to take in all the natural beauty the Buckeye State has to offer along the gorgeous Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is a Class III railroad that operates diesel electric and steam powered excursions through the scenic Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

While the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad offers a variety of different themed trains, one of our absolute favorites is the Grape Escape. This 2-hour journey is a local favorite that begins in Independence at the historic Rockside Station. The train will then weave through Cuyahoga Valley along the rushing Cuyahoga River from a one-of-a-kind vantage point.
