Greetings! My name is Paul Heney—I am a longtime journalist and a father of two young boys, ages 3 and 9. My wife works weekends, so I’m home with the boys then, and we love to explore all the things that Cleveland and Northeast Ohio has to offer.

For years, we’ve been checking out museums, parks, festivals, lakes, and more. NEO Kids will follow some of our adventures, to help you see Northeast Ohio from a kids point of view. Maybe you’ll find something you’ve never done, or maybe you’ll be reminded of an old favorite from your youth. It can be a magical experience to take your kids to places that your parents or grandparents took you many years ago.

My goal is for this blog to be an interactive one. I welcome your thoughts, opinions, suggestions, comments—anything you wish to throw our way or share with other area parents. Just as we like to share our favorites, we’re always on the lookout for other parents’ and kids’ ideas.

Here’s to great discoveries with the kids!
