History hasn't always been easy on us. But pressure can create diamonds. Come check out our gems.
There’s something you need to know about The Land: the party doesn’t stop just because of a little snow. We thrive in the winter months. In fact, we make up excuses to throw parties and celebrate even the darkest days of the year. After all, this is the Midwest. We’re a heartier breed and we’ll prove it by walking uphill (both ways) barefoot in the snow just to get a beer.
It’s always hot in Cleveland, even in the dead of winter. And after the holidays empty your pockets, you’ll be warming up to the idea of freebies while your bank account recovers. (Don’t worry. There will be more puns.)
Here are a few ideas to add to your list of FREE things to do in Cleveland.
It’s big, it’s beautiful and doesn’t look anywhere near its age - 150. It’s full of more than just books, too (as if it needed to be — books are awesome). There’s cutting edge tech for makers, community gaming nights and more. Take a tour of CPL’s downtown branch for the full experience.
The event of the season, Brite Winter is an outdoor celebration of live music, art, food and beverages with the city skyline as the backdrop. The performance lineup and other programming will be announced soon, so keep an eye out.
A free concert put on by some of the most talented classical students around, destined for orchestral stages? That’s music to our ears. Check their website for a schedule of concerts from the talented musicians at CIM.
If you dig contemporary art, Transformer Station is your haven. Located in the artsy Ohio City neighborhood, it’s home to four exhibitions per year and close to both the Market District and Gordon Square Arts District.
Get out and active by sledding, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing in the Cleveland Metroparks and Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Check their websites for designated trails.
It’s literal, actual heaven. The free tour in nearby North Canton is 45 minutes of mouth-watering, behind-the-scenes indulgence at a working chocolate factory. No Golden Ticket necessary.
Learn how animals prepare for winter in one of Miss Jenny’s “Animal Crackers” programs. "Try-It" sessions introduce us to park activities like pie-iron cooking and snowshoeing. Meet and feed the fuzzy, adorable chickadees – birds that inhabit the parks in the winter. Fireside Concerts at Look about Lodge from local artists and even more await you in the Metroparks this winter.
