Overview

Cleveland Rocks! When I tell people I am from Cleveland, the usual response is: "Congratulations on being from the armpit of America," or "Didn't a river catch on fire there." While a river did catch on fire in Cleveland (in the ‘60s), the city has undergone an amazing revitalization. Missing this gem of a city would be a major an unfortunate mistake. The flats and warehouse districts offer an outstanding choice of restaurants and bars. The new football and baseball stadiums have revitalized the diehard Cleveland sports fans. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Science Museums have added to the already unique Midwestern culture. This beautiful city on Lake Erie offers an abundance of activities,...Read More

Renaissance Cleveland Hotel

Hotel

Quote:
The best place to stay in the city is right downtown, and the best hotel to stay in downtown is the elegant Renaissance Cleveland. Located on the corner of Public Square, this well-established feature of the city offers not only the best location, but the best amenities in the city. It has a large atrium with a great restaurant and an elegant bar for earlier drinks or after-hour cocktails. The rooms are well furnished and exactly what you would expect from a Renaissance. The views from the hotel are also excellent. If you request a room on the north side, you will have a spectacular view of the square and the adjacent BP building (the tallest building in Cleveland). In the distance you will be ab...Read More

There can't be a decent travel review of Cleveland without talking about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so here it is. The Rock Hall is located on the shores of Lake Erie, right next to the new Brown's stadium, the Science Museum, and Burke Lake Front Airport right in the center of the city. It easily accessible by the Rapid or a taxi from downtown, or if you want to enjoy the air of the lake on a nice day, it is only a 20-minute walk from Tower City. The building itself was designed by world-renowned architect I.M. Pei, who also designed The National Gallery of Art's East Building, as well as the expansion to the Louvre in Paris, France. The building's main structure is that of a g...Read More

The Great Lakes Science Center is great day of fun and amusement for both children and adults. At only $9 for adults and $7 for children, it is also reasonably priced. The Great Lakes Science Center is located right on the shores of Lake Erie, between the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Brown's Stadium. This is not your normal science museum, where you would just walk by exhibits and read a few facts. The Science Center contains over 400 interactive exhibits, including such mind-bending displays as Touch the Indoor Tornado, Investigate the Sick Earth, and The Electric Theater Show. There are also much smaller exhibits where you can learn about the effects of magnets or see how...Read More

Story/Tip

Quote:
Clevelanders are fanatical about their sports teams. They can consume the whole city. Cleveland has a major sport for every season, so no matter what time of year you go, catching a game is always something fun to do. Below are a list of the major sports in the city and some advice on the best way to enjoy them. Browns: We'll start with football just because it is my favorite sport and probably most Clevelander's favorite sport, with baseball being a very close second. The Browns themselves have been around since the beginning of the NFL so there is a long history for this team, with its darkest days occurring in the mid-90s, when then owner, Art Model, moved them team to Baltimore. Today, h...Read More
