You won’t need a pep talk to explore the sights and sounds of Canton. Start your trip with a tour of the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the west side of town. It's the perfect place to brush up on your knowledge of one of America's favorite pastimes. You're sure to be impressed with the sheer number of exhibits and nearby Stadium Park, where West Branch Nimishillen Creek sets an easy pace.
After you've finished exploring the museum, trade the stadium seats for a show at the Canton Palace Theatre, located downtown among local art galleries and Canton’s cuisine scene.

If you're looking for a fun night out, go to 9th Street to find the best bars and taverns that Canton has to offer. No matter where a game is being played, you can join a viewing in one of the sports bars, because in the birthplace of football, every team is the home team. Cheers to a gorgeous getaway!
