Ohio is a great state to pick up a Cruise America RV rental and explore. Ohio home to one of the newest National Parks. Cities like Cincinnati, Akron, and Cleveland have unique cultural qualities about them that one simply has to experience. There are many museums, marketplaces, nature reserves, and beautiful lakefront beaches to visit in Cleveland, Ohio. The friendliness of people in Akron and the conservative attitudes of residents in Cincinnati both take time to absorb. Renting a motorhome from Cruise America in Ohio will give you that home base convenience and comfort as you travel and make new connections along the way. We recommend the following destinations to maximize your RV rental experience.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park - This young National Park is the premier destination for anyone touring Ohio in an RV. The park is located between Akron and Cleveland.

In addition, there are always expert speakers, live music events, and photo opportunities. National parks offer the tranquility and soothing sounds of nature to prepare you for the city adventures ahead.
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo - This zoo features one of the largest primate exhibits in North America. On Monkey Island, free-range Colobus monkeys roam unimpeded in a natural environment (free of cages and walls). The African Savannah exhibit has all the exotic elephants, giraffes, tigers, and lions, that make a zoo worthwhile. This is a popular extension of your scenic National Park trip with all the fauna in action around you. Your motorhome rental will save you money on expensive tourist trap prices when you stock the fridge with cold cuts, chips, and beverages.
