Readers nominated and voted for their favorite place to host a kid's birthday party in North Canton
The results are in, and the award for best place to host a kid's birthday party in North Canton goes to ... Dogwood Park! The park snagged 33 percent of the vote this week. But, so did Park Centre Lanes. Editor Morgan Day broke the tie by choosing which locale had the most nominations, and that was Dogwood Park. If your favorite place to host a kid's birthday party didn't win, you can still write a rave review in our Directory. And normally we would tell you to watch for our next installment of Readers' Choice Sunday; however, Readers' Choice is taking a little summer vacation and will return in a few weeks. (More on that Sunday.)

Give us your tips on kid-friendly venues for birthday celebrations!
You could do it the old-fashioned way: bake a cake, decorate the house, buy ice cream, make a punch, set a festive table and put up a pinata. But if you have your child's birthday party away from your home, you often can combine good food and a fun activity for a memorable occasion -- not to mention a little less stress for Mom or Dad. So this week's Readers' Choice wants to know: Where's your favorite place to host a kid's birthday party? A local pizza joint? A kid-friendly gym? What about a tour of the local candy factory or ice cream parlor?

Looks like a great staycation in North Canton means a couple lazy days lounging by the pool. Dogwood Pool, to be specific.

Where in North Canton do you go to have some fun on your days off?
For many of us, going on vacation doesn't necessarily mean taking a trip. Going on vacation can simply mean chillin' at home -- going out to eat, doing some fun things in town and maybe getting a few household chores done. We're so glad someone invented a name for this kind of non-travelin' vacation: The Staycation. This week's Readers' Choice focuses on Best Staycation Destinations. Beginning today -- Monday, May 7 -- and through 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, we'll be asking for your recommendations for places to go while on a staycation. Where to go on a staycation? A local putt-putt course ... the historical society ... a bowling alley ... the spa ... the video arcade. These are places where you can relax and have a little fun. Give us your …
