There’s a reason this town was nicknamed the “Comeback City.” Deep inside the Rust Belt, Cleveland has cleaned up its act and learned to rock!
Cleveland was built on the backs of automotive and steel plants, but when those industries dried up, the city rose to the challenge. It launched into a decades-long second act, revitalizing its downtown, attracting celebrity chiefs to trendy bistros, and throwing open its doors to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
What to do in Cleveland? Start with a little time in nature. An “Emerald Necklace” of parks surrounds the city’s downtown area inviting you for a jog, run, or rollerblade. You may even see a few horseback riders taking advantage of the gorgeous fall days. Hit the showers and then make your way to the University Circle district, where you can get some more exercise wandering through some of the best museums in the world. Don’t forget to take a tour of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to reminisce with all the rocker legends that have made their mark on the music world.
When the sun goes down, it’s time to eat and play. In the Tremont neighborhood, you’ll find high-end restaurants and maybe even a celebrity chief or two. Whatever your belly is hungry for—Italian, pan-Asian, or pure Americana—you can find it in Cleveland.
The list of things to do in Cleveland is endless. Spend a day skimming over the churning waters of Lake Erie on a jet ski or picking through handmade Amish crafts in Shaker Square, or laughing your you-know-what off at an improve show along the Detroit Shoreway. It all goes to show that Cleveland isn’t just surviving—it is alive and well and ready to rock, thank you very much. Are you ready to rock some sweet travel deals?
