If history, heritage and nostalgic memories are what your groups are searching for, then Stark County has much to offer. Celebrate the sights, sounds and even tastes of a bygone era with a nostalgia tour through Canton and the Stark County region.

Nostalgia

Uncover the history of the game that has become America's favorite sport, reliving the defining moments and celebrating the greatest players, past and present, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Dine in Canton's "oldest and finest restaurant" Bender's Tavern, frequented in its early days by the legendary athlete Jim Thorpe. Then, head over for a tour of the Canton Classic Car Museum, full of rare and unusual classics and special interest automobiles, complemented by thousands of pieces of historical memorabilia. You can literally "take a stroll" down memory lane in the Street of Shops, a life-size replica of a historic town at the William McKinley Presidential Library & Museum. And the Hoover Historical Center offers more great nostalgia, chronicling the story of the industrial tycoon William H. Hoover, founder of the Hoover Company, with guided tours through the Hoover family’s Victorian Italianate-style farmhouse. Be sure to include a visit to the National Historic District in Canal Fulton, home to Toys Time Forgot.  At 4,300 square feet, the store has grown to be one of the largest vintage toy stores in the Northeast United States. Top off the tour with a stop at one of our area's classic ice cream parlors.
