Just figured I'd share some of the photos I've shot around downtown. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. ^_^
This is my first year for the AS Brew path. I am discovering some really great Brewery s. So far the experience has been great. Meeting new people and going to new places. HOWEVER, at least one brewery requires to let them 'HOLD' your card even when you have cash laying on the table to pay. The "Thirsty Dog" claims to have such a policy. My bill was small, and I was charged on my card, while I had paid cash! It was removed almost immediately, but with the friends, (2) I was with, they had to fight to get over $35.00 back. It took over 2 weeks, her card was charged right away WITHOUT permission! We had food and the craft beer. I do not want to put down any place, but if this is their practice, we won't be back, and no other brewery on the path will ever "HOLD" my card again!

North Fork Trail in @BathTownship's Nature Preserve offers great hiking & biking (walking, if you want to slow the heck down). Its 404-acres feature: wetlands, woodlands, riparian, and old-field habitats. #30ParksIn30Days #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/2ygsqRq

Ribbbbit, ribbbbbbbit! I've been told you'll hear this endearing sound all along @metro_parks' Buttonbush Trail inside Twinsburg's Liberty Park. Take a walk and appreciate nature's wannabe karaokers during #30ParksIn30Days. #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

The Chippewa Trail in the Big Oak Area of @metro_parks' Silver Creek has a mature treeline planted by Girl Scout troops from 1967 to 1983. WHAT? I didn't know that until just now. Enjoy the sweet view (I'm making myself hungry for some Thin Mints). Remember it's #30ParksIn30Days! #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

Seriously!? Do you realize how much there is to do inside @metro_parks' Hampton Hills? So much! Please, please check it out during #30ParksIn30Days. I beg of you. #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

We're coming down the home stretch with #30ParksIn30Days, so make sure you add Summit Metro Parks' 303 Trailhead to your list. It's located just off 64 W. Streetsboro St. in Boston Heights. Rain or shine, it's feels so good to get outside, right? #heyakron #heysummit

Have you explored @metro_parks' Freedom Trail? If not, you've got to see how an unused section of railroad tracks has been re-imagined. I just love when something old becomes "new" again. Check it out during #30ParksIn30Days. #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

@metro_parks' Springfield Bog Metro Park's Prairie Trail shows the beauty of "bogs," as they relate to The Continental Divide, which runs through the park. It's a super cool story that I don't have the space to tell here, so visit their site. #30ParksIn30Days #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

Lace up your hiking shoes & make your way to Summit Metro Park's Wood Hollow Park for #30ParksIn30Days. Get some walking in along the 1.2 mile Downy Loop Trail. I'm bringing my binoculars, too! #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

Nimisila Reservoir is one of 13 bodies of water comprising Portage Lakes. At 825 acres, the lake offers fun for anglers, boaters, kayakers, and dip-your-toe-in-the-waterers! Check out this @metro_parks' beauty during #30ParksIn30Days. #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

Have you seen the iconic Signal Tree? If not, make your way to @metro_parks Cascade Valley Metro Park for #30ParksIn30Days. In the Chuckery Area, you can't miss its imposing beauty. #heyakron #heysummit buff.ly/3bqs4Ga

Nestled at the corner of Maca & Beechwood Drives in @TallmadgeOhio, Maca Park is the perfect place to check another #30ParksIn30Days off your list. Meander along the 2+ mile nature hiking trail for some outdoor r & r. Stay safe & healthy. https://buff.ly/2KaiM5p

So much to explore Summit Metro Park's 258-acre Firestone Metro Park, including Willow & Redwing Trails, and Little Turtle & Spring ponds. A walking course is for those of us easing into this "exercise thing." So, get out there for #30ParksIn30Days. #heyakron #heysummit www.summitmetroparks.org

We're seeing snow & sunshine! Come on Mother Nature, make a decision. Either way, check out Summit Metro Parks' Munroe Falls Park - featuring 500-acres of tree-covered trails, ponds and open spaces, too. Aww, that sounds good to me, as I continue my #30Parksin30Days. #heyakron #heysummit

I'm pretty sure that daffodils are already out in bloom, so I'll be wandering up to @metro_parks's Furnace Run Park in @RichfieldOhio. During #30ParksIn30Days, make sure you take a stroll along their Daffodil Trail. It sounds so incredibly relaxing & cathartic, right? #heyakron #heysummit

[04/09/20]   Ssh, I'm trying to fish here. If you're feeling as lucky as I am, cast your line in the beautiful pond at Longwood Park in @cityofmacedonia. #30ParksIn30Days is a great way to get outside for some fresh air & a much-needed change of scenery. Have fun. #heyakron #heysummit

Let's get outside & feel the sun on our faces. I'll be heading to Liberty Park in @TwinsburgOH @TwinsburgRec @metro_parks for some much needed communin' & relaxin' in nature during #30ParksIn30Days. Be safe & healthy. #heyakron #heysummit

There’s something about being around moving water that really helps me clear my head and relax. If you feel the same way, you should take a short walk down to the Cuyahoga River at River Front Park in Cuyahoga Falls! #HeyAkron #HeySummit #30ParksIn30Days
