In The Land, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. Expect over-the-top holiday decorating, ridiculously ugly sweaters, leg lamp displays, Christmas Ale imbibing and, of course, light displays so bright that we’re sure they can be seen from space.
In a city that takes shopping and its arts and entertainment seriously, Cleveland offers endless options to help you and your family continue your holiday traditions — or even make some new ones:
From mom-and-pop shops dotting the blocks of our neighborhoods to bustling districts across The Land, there’s no shortage of options for unique gifts for that special someone or stocking up on your CLE faves before you head home.
Get dressed up for a night in University Circle for a Cleveland Orchestra Holiday Concert, or head to Playhouse Square for “A Christmas Carol” or “The Nutcracker.”
Marvel at the winter wonder of the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s new FROST display or celebrate the 40th anniversary of “A Christmas Story” at the house where it all began.
We rounded up all the best things to do in Cleveland this holiday season because, well, that’s kind of what we do here.
