Thanksgiving means a trip home for many former Clevelanders living outside The Land. You’ll spend time with loved ones, catch up with old friends and of course sit down to a pants-splitting spread of turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and all the other usual suspects.
But it’s a long weekend and you can only spend so much time updating Mom and Dad on your dating prospects. You’ve got to get out and explore your hometown to see all the amazing changes it’s experienced and mix it up with some holiday weekend hijinks.
Whether it’s cheering for the Cavs or starting the holiday season off right, we’ve put together some of the best reasons to escape your childhood home for a few hours.

Coach Bickerstaff and the boys are playing tough defense and team basketball as the new-look Cavs take on the league's best night after night. You’ve got two opportunities to check out double-double machine Jarrett Allen, feisty guards Darius Garland and Collin Sexton, and sensational rookie big Evan Mobley, with games bookending Turkey Day.
Of course, you’ve got to check out the new-look arena while you’re here. Thanks to a $185 million transformation (and a fancy, new name), Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is looking and feeling pretty good with an abundance of premium seating, which includes private theater boxes, a biergarten-inspired club and a gorgeous lounge. You’ll also find eight new hospitality areas, 22 events spaces and a great line-up of authentically Cleveland dining options from local celeb chefs.
PRO TIP: Go ahead and invite Dad. He might just buy the first beer.

Get your body ready for the feast ahead by running in the 40th annual Cleveland Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning.

The world famous Cleveland Orchestra has retaken the stage at Severance Hall and they're wasting no time with an amazing schedule of talented guest artists in 2021-2022. After arguing with your cousins about Browns playcalling or who ate the last crescent roll, find some serenity with guest pianists Katia and Marielle Labeque as they join the Orchestra on a trio of pieces, including Franck's Symphony in D Minor.
The official start to the holiday season in Cleveland, Winterfest is a day filled with wondrous light displays, live music, gourmet food trucks, fireworks and even a visit from the jolly one himself. It’s a great opportunity to check out everything happening Downtown.

Sure, the air is a little crisper, but you can enjoy gorgeous landscapes with a hike through one of Cleveland’s amazing green spaces like Rocky River Reservation or Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Both have miles of trails perfect for working off that extra slice of pumpkin pie — okay two extra slices — or avoiding Black Friday mayhem.
Hit up some seasonal selections from a few of Cleveland’s favorite breweries. Platform Beer Co. is quickly making a name for itself with inventive brews like the Yammy Yammy sweet potato ale, and its new Phunkenship location mixes it up with indoor bocce and shuffleboard tables. It’s never too early for a Christmas Ale from Great Lakes Brewing Company, the OG in these parts. The options are nearly endless, with breweries like Market Garden and Nano Brew, which tap local stalwarts Prosperity Wheat and Citramax IPA, among others.
