Pretty spectacular. That is, unless you're expecting an urban paradise of nightclubs. The center is in Cuyahoga Falls National Park, set among 800 acres of greenery. So after the concert, you'll need to jump in your car for a few miles to find some hotels and restaurants.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park
If you've got a spare day, wander along the many trails which visit lakes and waterfalls including Brandywine Falls. Farmers' markets regularly take place, too. Head to the visitor center for maps and info on the area.
Cuyahoga Valley Art Center
Inspired by its scenic surrounds, this center holds a trove of artwork in its large gallery. Some appreciative nodding near some fine art can be followed by coffee and cake in the café.
Fresh food is prepared from scratch and cooked in pure veg oil at this Mexican restaurant. A fiesta of dishes whipped up in the kitchen include the 'chalupa' - a flat corn tortilla with refried beans, cheese and guacamole salad; and the 'Chili relleno' - a poblano pepper with white Mexican cheese, topped with egg white and sauce.
The Wine Mill
Maybe you're looking for somewhere a little more upmarket? This restaurant combines a reliably great wine list with a small but well-formed menu and complimentary valet parking. The pulled pork slider is a winner, as are the salads which come with French bread and a large mason jar of dressing. Pub Bricco
If the word 'gastropub' gets you excited, mosey along to Pub Bricco, where dishes include the likes of Parmesan-crusted calamari and bistro steak. What's more, live jazz concerts are held on Wednesday nights in the small attached theater.
Drive along W Steels Corners Road or, if there's tonnes of traffic, make use of the back entrance on Northampton Road. The Center is surrounded by woodland so prepare your eagle-eye...or else just follow the car in front.
There might be a Rally Bus shuttle service running. Check out the website near the gig date.
Everyone is allowed to bring food in small, clear, zip-locked bags. As for drinks, orchestra-goers can pack beer, wine and liquor, whereas rockers must make do with clear bottled water. The good news is there'll be stands serving drinks and snacks. Plus, for something a bit fancier, there's the Blossom Grille: a restaurant and wine bar located behind the concession stands. Here, you can sample the likes of sushi, scallops and 'someone forgot to heat this soup' gazpacho.
Yep and it's free, get ready to upload those selfies.
There surely is. Depending on your ticket, you might end up on the grass area which requires a short walk to the venue. Then there's the paved lot which is closer to the gates, and is recommended for the less mobile. A shuttle bus might be running but, chances are, you might have to wait before getting on.
Standard parking is included with some tickets. If you want to cut down on your walk, consider getting a premier (around $15-25) or VIP (around $20-35) pass which will be available until ten days before the gig date.
It varies. Check your ticket for the low-down.
Sometimes it pays to be a pessimist. If you've got a spot on the lawn, we recommend kitting yourself out with blankets and umbrellas, as well as lawn chairs (these can be no more than nine inches off the ground, and can be hired on the day for $5).

This was my first visit here. Most of my concerts have been at KeyBank Pavilion, Cincinnati Riverbend or numerous places in Virginia. I liked the large parking lot and fun atmosphere. People should be allowed to tailgate and drink in the parking lot if they aren't harming anyone. It's a free country! Nice place! I would go back.
Liked: A lot of staff security. Very organized venue. Nice sound under the pavilion.
Disliked: Too many armed cops. If there are metal detectors and searches on the way in, why do you need armed cops? Inserting a gun into the environment increases your changes of having a fatality. Keep cops out of the venue and only call them for an emergency. Better signage would be helpful as well.
Disliked: Long traffic going in and out.

The best place to go for a concert - it was my first time at Blossom and I was blown away! All I can say is wow - everything went smoothly, from parking to getting into the concert to leaving. Not one complaint from me!

The walk from parking lot is a haul. They really should have some type of shuttle. Speakers were not loud enough for people in the lawn.
Liked: A lot of potential.
Disliked: Under age drinking.

This was our first time at Blossom - we loved every minute, it is a wonderful venue! We will never forget the evening spent at Blossom! Will definitely be recommending to friends. The atmosphere is wonderful. The only thing we would do differently is go at 5:00 and really enjoy the venue. We will definitely go back! Take a picnic and tailgate to beat the traffic!

Liked: We really like the layout and do plan on coming back for another concert.

My first concert at the Blossom seeing Train. Best time ever!
Liked: Great layout; open air; wonderful atmosphere.
Disliked: Leaving parking lot.
Stephanie, Delta Tue, 2 July 2013
Liked: Great atmosphere for a concert.
Disliked: Hard to navigate (walking) to get our taxi ride back to the hotel. Maybe have some directions located along the walk back to give us an idea which way to go. Parking attendants were not very helpful, just kept telling us to continue walking. If there was some frame of reference (e.g. look for the blue signs) as to where we were to go it would be helpful.

Will be back to see more concerts here!
Liked: Huge venue; plenty of beverage and food vendors; can't really have a bad seat.
Disliked: Parking is not the best.

My 5th time at Blossom. Always a pleasure. Didn't have to wait any longer than 10 minutes to make it thru the LONG line to the bathroom. Many stalls inside. The vendors are friendly. No problems anywhere and highly enjoyed our concert.
Liked: Many bathrooms.
Disliked: Vendors are pricey.
