Description

Widely considered the most innovative city in the US, Cleveland boasts several professional sports teams, a Great Lake, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a world-renowned amusement park. Cleveland's culinary scene is so amazing that they've named it Cleveland Plus, an area of town jam packed with master chefs, a barrage of ethnic cuisine, and microbreweries supplying the city with uniquely delicious drinks. Your musical tastes will be satiated by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the bars and amphitheaters play host to a wide variety of both international and local talent. In Cleveland, you can pitch a tent at a scenic campground, check into a charming bed and breakfast, or pamper yourself at a luxurious 5-star hotel. Whatever you're looking for, this rockin' city has your back.

Worth A Look-See

09/26/13
Cleveland might not be on everyone's bucket list but if you are in the area, you will find plenty of interesting things to do, so check it out. Not only is it relatively cheap to fly into, there is a train line that runs from the airport to downtown. One train stop is a mall that has a couple of hotels as anchors. No need to lug a suitcase down the block!

There is the obvious activities like the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame (yes, go..go!) which is also along the same train line and the theater district (walking distance from aforementioned hotels and train stop). Did you know Playhouse Square (their theater district) is one of the largest in the US, outside of New York? So plan your visit to coincide with exhibits and shows you want to see but also check out some of the good food.

There is a strong pierogi presence there so bring a cooler to ship the interesting flavors back home. Pierogis are the Polish version of raviolis or pot-stickers and have a few home-of-the-best places in and around Cleveland. After a Bourbon Chicken, Crab meat, or Peanut Butter Banana at Pierogi Palace it really is downhill from there. If you are not into little pockets of goodness, try an excellent Mexican restaurant Momocho. Start with one (or more) of the 7 kinds of guacamole and one (or more) of the 10 types of Margaritas. Don't forget to take a moment to enjoy the decorations. The wallpaper is comprised of old Mexican wrestling (Lucha libre) flyers and ads.

The Next Portland?

09/21/13
Cleveland has the power to presently surprise those who give it the opportunity to do so. The burgeoning neighborhoods offer much by way of organic cafes and coffee shops. Be sure to spend time in Ohio City, Tremont, Little Italy and Coventry. These parts of town have adorable shops, tasty restaurants, wine bars and plenty of parking. The new addition to the art museum is not to be missed! This part of the midwest has plenty of sky, so be sure to enjoy at least one sunset over Lake Erie.
