Museum
“Your kids (or grandkids) will learn about the great lakes environment. It's hands-on and also fun for adults. Kids build stuff, climb on stuff, and learn stuff. Adults might too. Then drive north a few hundred yards for ice cream at Wares.”

Art Gallery
“Housed in TC's old Carnegie Library with a Midcentury Modern addition right on the Boardman River, this gallery features well curated art, mostly from local or regional artists. Admission is free and everything is for sale. Start here and then stroll down Sixth Street to admire the grand old lumber baron homes. ”
