What makes someone a Clevelander? It’s not just where you were born, how much Cleveland history you can recite or even rabid sports fandom. Clevelanders are driven by a grit and determination that produces creativity, innovation, prideful passion and a pervasive sense of optimism.
Maybe it’s our authenticity and unpretentiousness, a shared sense of kindness, quirkiness and acceptance that often moves first-time visitors to feel a sense of belonging, leaving with new friends and rich experiences.
In this series, we're showing what it means to be a Clevelander by sparking unique and engaging conversations between Clevelanders everywhere. As we weave through everything from favorite restaurants and nightlife hotspots to the challenges facing our city, we uncover a unique set of connections that link us together to The Land for Life.
