Football Hall of Fame

I'd say I've been a legitimate football fan for about 10-12 years of my life. It was during high school I really started to follow the Bengals and care/understand about the amazing world of football. In fact, I remember my junior year of high school - when everyone starts asking you what you want to do after high school - telling people that one day I'd work for the Bengals in some capacity. The passion was born in the 2000s and has only grown since then.

I say all that to say that a trip to the Pro Football Hall of Fame was well overdue when I finally got to go two weekends ago! Jared and I made the quick road trip to Canton, Ohio with my parents for a long weekend of awesomeness. We arrived Friday evening to our ADORABLE hotel room (seriously, I was obsessed with the blue and orange decor) and grabbed dinner at the closest BBQ restaurant the guys could find. Hog Heaven got a thumbs up from all of us- but especially my dad and Jared.

We started the very next morning at the hall of fame and I couldn't really contain my excitement. I had no idea what to expect, but I knew I would love the place no matter what. I've never known anyone who had visited the HOF so we were going into it with high expectations based solely on our love for football. 

We were right to be excited though- we all LOVED touring it. We spent a good 3.5-4 hours there and probably could have stayed even longer but we were ready for some food after that long. #hangry


There is an awesome theatre that shows highlights from the previous year's Super Bowl in the HOF and my gosh, I felt like I was reliving it right along with the players. The film footage they have, the sideline commentary, it was awesome. And definitely had me dreaming of the day the Bengals will bring it all home to Cincinnati :)

We had so much fun exploring all aspects of the NFL. History, hall-of-famers, record-breakers, size of NFL players hands/legs- you name it, we learned about it!

We are Tebow lovers in this family :)

I highly, HIGHLY recommend making a stop here if you're ever in Northern Ohio. Canton is only an hour from Cleveland- which is where we headed the following day. More on that tomorrow :) I hope everyone had a great football-filled weekend... you know I'm yelling a big ole WHODEY this morning!

  4. So much fun! John worked in Canton when we lived in Cleveland. We drove by the Hall of Fame all the time but never stopped in. Definitely something I regret. Glad you all had a great time!

  12. Oh my gosh this is so awesome! I want to go!!!!!! I haven't been following pro football nearly as long, but my love has grown quickly. It's so fun to have something to be excited for on Sundays and bond with people from all over who have the same passion.

  17. That looks amazing. I've never actually been to any of the pro sports hall of fames. The Baseball one isn't too far from here and we are hoping to visit this fall. :)

  20. I remember wishing there were more Bengals things in there...;) I really loved it, too! I think it'd be so much fun to go for an induction or the preseason game every year. I really loved the room of heads. So much talent in that room.

  21. That looks like SO much fun! I've been to the Packer Hall of Fame twice - in two different buildings. & now, they've changed it again. Same as the stadium but they've made some changes so I best be getting back. The NFL Hall of Fame would be awesome to visit. Someday, someday. :)

  22. I'm a little late catching up on my blogs, but I love that you went up north for a trip! I grew up in the Cle suburbs and went to college near the Canton. I've been to both museums several times for different events. I'm so glad you enjoyed my hood. Let me know if you ever go back so I can give you some of my favorite restaurants as recommendations. Cle forever!
