Getting Here, Going There
Car, Plane, or Train, We'll Get You Where You Need to Go

Cleveland is a driver's market. The city sits within a 500-mile radius of nearly half of the U.S. population. The Ohio Turnpike and Interstate 90 take visitors east to west across the state, while I-71 links Cleveland to Columbus and Cincinnati.
Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is 12 miles from downtown and offers an abundance of nonstop flights around the country and internationally via all major carriers. A new taxi system and ample on- and off-site parking make access fast, easy, and reasonably priced.
Located just 50 miles east of Cleveland, Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) boasts the lowest average airfares in the state of Ohio. Southwest Airlines, AirTran, United, US Airways, and Delta fly nonstop between CAK and major Midwest, East Coast, and Florida cities.
The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) links travelers via rapid transit trains and bus routes. The city's HealthLine bus-rapid transit system connects downtown to the East Side via the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus, and airport travelers can connect quickly from downtown on a train. Once downtown, take advantage of the city's free trolley network seven days a week.
Or Just Walk
It's easy to travel by foot around Downtown Cleveland. All of the city's major meeting venues are within a 15-20 minute walk to award-winning dining, lodging, and entertainment.
