The rejuvenated energy reverberating through Downtown Cleveland’s historic districts, pouring out from its stadiums, glistening along the Lake Erie shoreline and mingling among skyscrapers and historic buildings is worth the visit alone. Downtown Cleveland is buzzing with nightlife, restaurants, attractions and hotels.
What makes a city unique? In Cleveland, we believe it’s the very people who jaunt along our bustling avenues, welcome you from behind the counters of mom-and-pop joints, showcase decades worth of hand-crafted art, and shuffle the cold draft beer your direction. Find these people in the very neighborhoods in which they live — places that boast the best food and nightlife in the city.
Our ‘burbs aren’t the kind of places you’ll find in Anytown, USA. Unless, of course, it’s standard for most suburbs to come complete with a national park, award-winning chefs, Lake Erie beaches and miles of interconnected bike trails. This is what happens when you’re not trying to be something you’re not.
From the rush of one of the fastest roller coasters in the world to the serene calm of sipping wine at a vineyard on a Lake Erie, the region just outside our doorstep will level-up your Cleveland experience.
