K is for Kelleys Island

Cleveland is Cooler Than You Think!
All over the media, in tv and movies, Cleveland gets made fun of. In this year's A-Z Challenge, I'm here to show you everything Cleveland has to offer!

K is for Kelleys Island

If you're ready to get a way from the hectic hustle and bustle of Cleveland you can head northwest about 2 hours, including a short ferry ride to Kelleys Island where you can enjoy relaxing by the lake or hiking through Glacial Grooves Geological Preserve.

Kelleys Island is one of the many Lake Erie Islands which are predominantly summer tourist spots, where you can tour wineries, shop, take a boat tour of Lake Erie, and enjoy many different places to eat.

Or if you prefer roller coasters, instead of taking the ferry, you can just stay in Sandusky and head to Cedar Point for some thrilling adventures on their newest ride Valravn, the tallest, fastest, longest dive roller coaster.  

Even though we've been in Cleveland for 10 years now, we still haven't made it to Kelleys Island yet. Hopefully this summer we'll get there.

Doggy Style (It's really not what you think!)

My three kids have taken up the habit of naming all the different positions our beagle Rory gets himself into.  Most of the time even I can't quite figure out why they chose the names they did but I thought it might put a smile on everyone's face to share in this silliness!

K is for Kitten

Most of the time Rory acts like a kitten laying in the sun or laying on the tops of all our couches.   

Hope your week is going great! We've had sun now two days in a row! Yay!

  1. He is on the top of your couch!
    That island sounds like a fun visit. I have been to Cedar Point before. Not a roller coaster fan, so not as much fun for me.

  2. Rory is so cute.

    I went to Cedar Point many years ago on a Tuesday and the place was so packed, I missed riding 5 coasters. I was so disappointed.

  3. Cleveland and Rory's positions (really not what you think :))...
    Way to go, Kathy.
    Maybe one day I'll visit Cleveland and have a full itinerary, thanks to your A to Z.
