Whether you’re planning a micro-wedding, large wedding, conference or multi-day meeting, entertaining your guests in the hours surrounding the big event will be a consideration on your event checklist. After all, by their attendance, your guests are demonstrating all-in in support and by considering their comfort and entertainment you will ensure your event is truly memorable in every sense. If you have just a few hours to fill —or a few days— here are some ideas for local fun:
Guests that are staying on our onsite hotel, the Residence Inn by Marriott Cleveland Avon can spend downtime at our comfortable bar/lounge/patio, Bar 41˚82˚ or swim in our indoor pool. The hotel also has a sport court and workout facility. The all-suite hotel provides a rejuvenating stay in suites that offer ergonomic workstations, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchens.
For your guests that want to venture out and explore, this area offers a multitude of Lake Erie and Cleveland area activities they can do independently, or you can build into your itinerary.
Lake Erie Fishing: There are a number of Lake Erie fishing charters where a group can get out and experience walleye, perch, steelhead and smallmouth bass fishing. A relaxing day on the Lake is a perfect way to see the shoreline. You can also visit any number of beaches all along the lakeshore. Lake Erie’s shore lies just 3 miles north of us.
The city of Avon also has multiple shopping and dining opportunities. The city also has a unique Antique District where you can find some truly unique treasures.
For families that have young ones with energy to burn, Main Event is just down the street. Main Event features bowling, virtual reality, rock climbing, mini golf and gravity ropes.
