Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad: Cheap Date
Check out the fall foilage from the comfort of a rail car in Independence
Check back every Friday for Cheap Date: one weekend event or activity that won't break the bank.
This weekend offers a great chance to see how much the leaves have changed one week into autumn. If you travel to Independence, you can take in the fall foliage from the comfort of a rail car.
The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad will offer trips this weekend from nine locations, though its Rockside Station is the closest to the area. The climate-controlled rail car offers coach, premium and handicap-accessible seating.
Watch this video to get an idea of the fun you could have on your trip.
