Cleveland is a bustling city with a lot going on. Between the award-winning restaurants and the many museums along the waterfront and in University Circle, there are countless things to do in Cleveland. This Cleveland guide highlights some of the best festivals to attend and points out some great Cleveland deals.
One of Cleveland’s many things to do is to take in a sporting event. Downtown Cleveland is home to three different professional sports venues, housing the Browns football team, the Cavaliers basketball team, and the Indians baseball team. On top of this, there are also minor league hockey and arena football teams.
Cleveland also boasts numerous restaurants, many serving up hearty and classic American fare like hamburgers and sandwiches. Two places to check out include B Spot, which is owned by Cleveland’s Iron Chef, Michael Symon, and Melt Bar and Grilled, which has been featured on the Food Network. Home to dozens of Italian restaurants and small privately-owned art galleries, Cleveland’s Little Italy should not be overlooked. Their yearly street festival is full of food, live music, and rides.
Whether it is medieval art, rock and roll memorabilia, antique cars, or dinosaur bones, there is a museum in Cleveland for it. The Cleveland Museum of Art, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History are all noteworthy, as are the Health Museum, SPACES art gallery, and the Great Lakes Science Center.
No guide to Cleveland is complete without mentioning the many concerts, plays, and musicals performed in the city every month. Eight different theaters make up PlayhouseSquare, and live music can be heard at Severance Hall, Quicken Loans Arena, the House of Blues, the Agora, Peabody’s, and Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica, just to name a few.
