The city of Cleveland, Ohio has been the butt of many jokes over the decades, but not any longer as it’s one of the most charming, interesting and fun destinations in the country. The city, which sits on the shores of Lake Erie, used to be known as a rough, industrial type of town, but it’s now a wonderful place to visit at any time of the year.
If you’re heading there from a nearby destination don’t be afraid of the drive as the highway system is easy to navigate and traffic flows freely. The same goes for the downtown core. There’s a wide variety of hotels to choose from right downtown and they can be found in all price ranges.
When driving into the city you’ll soon notice the lake and sitting right next to it is the Cleveland Browns NFL football stadium. This is a reminder that Cleveland is a huge sports city as it’s also home to the NBA’s Cavaliers, the Cleveland Indians Major League Baseball team, and an American League (AHL) hockey franchise.
The downtown area has two excellent districts that are filled with all types of clubs, restaurants, and pubs, from the local bar to upscale locations. Most of these are found in the Warehouse District and an area known as the Flats. The people are friendly and the nightlife’s bustling.
The downtown area is clean and features some interesting and beautiful architecture. It’s a pleasure to walk through while exploring the various sections of the city. It’s always a good idea to stick to the downtown districts though, as it is in just about every major city on the globe.
The famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is also located in Cleveland and nearby Sandusky has one of America’s most popular amusement parks. There’s plenty to see and do in Cleveland, especially for young adults and sports fans.
