The diversity of its environments is one of the many reasons I love to live in Northeast Ohio. A person could get from Cuyahoga National Park to downtown’s Public Square to Edgewater Beach in less than an hour. Whether you are an avid biker, golfer, paddleboarder or live music lover, it’s pretty easy to find something that sparks your interest during a Cleveland summer. There are more than 300 different golf courses in Northeast Ohio and the Ohio and Erie Canalway Towpath Trail hosts some of the most scenic spots in the region. In addition, it’s been great to see multiple companies spring up recently that support water activities – as I believe Lake Erie is one of our most important assets.

University Circle is the most beautiful area in Cleveland. The density of its art institutions and museums gives the atmosphere a unique feel (you almost feel smarter just breathing the air). Relaxing on a bench by Wade Lagoon is my favorite way to soak it all in.
The concert venue in the Flats combines an outdoor, on-the-water atmosphere with great acoustics – not easy to do. Jacob’s Pavilion is one of my favorite places to see a summer show.
Nolan is a twenty something senior at John Carroll University and a life long Clevelander. He's currently interning at Destination Cleveland in the PR department.
Progressive Field is an urban ballpark in the truest sense, both architecturally and aesthetically. Built within the physical boundaries of three main streets in downtown Cleveland (Ontario to the...
