A March 2005 trip
to Cleveland by mjsoules
Quote: Cleveland is just coming into its own as a travel destination, and, as a result, it isn't crowded or touristy but has lots of fun activities for the whole family!
The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame draws tourists, but don't come to Cleveland just for that. Many people find it to be somewhat of a let-down, as it is pretty expensive for the area. The science museum next door is fun, though. Nearby Tower City is great for shopping, and the dancing fountain is fun to watch with kids. Sports here are pretty cheap, and the stadiums are really nice. Another personal favorite of mine is heading to the waterfront in the Flats for dinner at Shooters or one of the other restaurants (Rock Bottom Brewery is amazing, especially if they have their mustard-dill halibut!!).
I also like to go to the public beach on the west side and collect beach glass (a fave since I was little). Pier W is a great, albeit slightly pricey, restaurant with amazing views of the city skyline over the water. I went at lunch, which ran me about .
