• Sunset over the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie from the dock/patio of Shooter’s on the Water.

• Cuddled under the holiday-lit trees of Public Square listening to the broadcast Christmas music.

• A light brunch, followed by a stroll among the shops clustered around the Falls in Chagrin Falls.

• Skiing under the lights at Boston Mills Brandywine.
