Cleveland is a land of world-class experiences without the world-class ego. It has all the hustle and bustle you’d expect of a big city, but still manages to maintain a small-town feel.
Overlooking Lake Erie, Cleveland offers a little bit of something for everyone: sports, stunning views and beaches, seemingly endless trails and metro parks, delicious fare and potables, world class museums, dive bars, and…well…you name it.
Cleveland is the largest city on Lake Erie, one of the major cities of the Great Lakes region, and the #1 place to visit in Ohio according to US News.
Cleveland is within 3 hours driving time of Columbus, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; Detroit, MI; Buffalo, NY; and Windsor, Canada. All very pertinent printing markets.
Cleveland is less than a two -hour flight from Chicago, many all eastern cities, as well as Atlanta and most southern and midwestern major cities.
Cleveland is home to several major cultural institutions, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the Cleveland Orchestra, Playhouse Square, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Known as “The Forest City” among many other nicknames, Cleveland serves as the center of the Cleveland Metroparks nature reserve system. The city’s major league professional sports teams include the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Cleveland Guardians.
Foodies will delight in this city’s offerings because Clevelanders sure love their food. Beyond the various breweries, wineries and food tours, the city is home to an array of top chefs and restaurants. Whether you’re looking for fine dining, a hole-in-the-wall bar or a trendy club and restaurant, Cleveland has it all.
When the sun goes down, the nightlife sizzles in local districts like Tower City, Edgewater, Shaker Quare, Ohio City, and Tremont. While you’re visiting, be sure to sample local beers, stroll down West Sixth street to hit the dive bars; visit the many museums, restaurants, and shops; or catch a MLB Guardians Indians game at Progressive Field.
Cleveland is also home to the West Side Market, which is an open air market with over 180 years of history. The market is home to over 100 vendors of all types. You can find not only fine meats and fresh vegetables, but also fresh seafood, baked goods, dairy and cheese products, and even fresh flowers. There are also booths that sell ready-to-eat foods, herbs, candy and nuts. Tourists from all over the world tour the market every year drawn by television programs produced by the Travel Channel and Food Network featuring segments on the West Side Market.
If you’re more of an outdoor enthusiast, Cleveland also offers 18 metroparks covering nearly 23,000 acres and featuring 300 miles of trails.
