You may have seen these around town, in your friends' or family's Instagram pics, or even on national TV. The Cleveland script signs were installed last year ahead of the Republican National Convention and now serve as a permanent tribute to our awesome city.
Last summer, Destination Cleveland installed three Cleveland script signs in picturesque locations with the intention that both locals and visitors would seek them out for signature photos they might share with friends and family on social media.
In the fall, the Cleveland script signs were put in the national spotlight, being featured in footage of Cleveland before and after commercials during the Tribe’s playoff and World Series run. Lines began forming on weekends where locals, visitors, wedding parties, couples, groups, and photographers were gathering to capture their Cleveland moment.
So, we decided to help out a bit. We've got a small corp of volunteers who go out to the signs for a few hours on weekends to offer assistance in taking photos or even answering questions about Cleveland. Knowing many people feel shy asking others to take a picture for them, now a trusted volunteer is on hand offering to do so. Couples can both be in a photo together, groups didn’t have to leave an odd man or woman out, and ill-advised selfies are unnecessary, as a volunteer can perfectly frame your excellent new profile picture.
But wait, there's more!
Recently, a fourth Cleveland script sign was installed at Euclid Beach Park, giving a new, unique view of the Cleveland skyline from the east side. A fifth sign is also being planned for the baggage claim area of the Cleveland Hopkins Airport.
If you’re interested in volunteering, sign up as a CLE Ambassador here. If you would like to check out the three current signs, they are located at the North Coast Harbor adjacent to the E. 9th St. Pier and behind the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (1001 E. 9th St), the Tremont Abbey Ave. Overlook (1430 Abbey Ave.), and at Edgewater Park.
