Last summer, Sarah and I took our family to Cuyahoga Valley National Park for a couple of days as part of our summer vacation looping around most of the Great Lakes. At Gringott’s Money Exchange in Diagon Alley , guests can trade their Muggle cash for Wizard money to be used anywhere in the park. But don’t miss the opportunity to have a conversation with the goblin handling the transaction! Ask him a question and he will respond – gruffly, as goblins do. Try asking him about the dragon at Gringott’s.
The Village is punctuated with open green spaces. It’s a walker’s delight, exploring the byways, people watching, happening upon a streetcorner cafÃ© or a boutique shop with unique fashions. The coffee shop has the latest newspapers and a handpicked selection of beach books for sale. You can rent bicycles for more far-ranging expeditions; kayaks and surf gear; or settle into a comfortable lounge chair on the beach shaded by a generous umbrella.
I booked this house for a bachelorette party for Memorial Day weekend for 8 girls. The house is AH-mazing! It’s walking distance to the bars (maybe not in heels though) but you can always pick up cabs and pedicabs, which is what we did. It was so convenient having a private pool, we utilized this a lot. There’s a liquor store right around the corner from the house, but they jack up the prices. The office staff was GREAT! So accommodating. Our first day we arrived prior to check in so we left our luggage in the office and they delivered it to the house for us. I plan on going back and would recommend for any occasion!

It’s easy to miss this entire section of Diagon Alley. The dark, brick alley looks like it might be a dead end, but wander in, if you dare. Don’t miss Borgin and Burkes, where you’ll find the famous vanishing cabinet and all forms of incredible Dark Arts artifacts. It’s a treat for the senses – once your eyes get accustomed to the dark!
