The biggest tourist attraction in Canton is undoubtedly the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which draws fans from all over the world. It opened in 1963, 43 years after the professional football league was founded in Canton, and it now features 287 greats of the game. The Hall of Fame has been expanded and upgraded over the years to be a thoroughly modern museum with multimedia exhibits alongside cases of artifacts and a research library.
Enshrinement in August is its big event of the year, attracting tens of thousands for weekend featuring an exhibition game, autograph sessions and the enshrinement ceremony. The city itself puts on a weeks’ worth of events as part of its Enshrinement Festival. For sports lovers, there’s no better time to visit Canton.
