The trails, scenic railway and waterfalls of Cuyahoga Valley National Park are the autumn stars along this newer national byway in northeast Ohio, but the 110-mile route, which snakes south from Cleveland, also includes the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On fall weekends in Canal Fulton, a horse-drawn boat plies the byway’s namesake.

Tale of two cities Like the opposing pole to Cleveland’s urban bustle, the sleepy, beautifully preserved village of Zoar hides quietly at the southern end of the drive. Walking tours and museums highlight the town’s Utopian history.
