The other day I beat feet from Upstate, NY to Chicago. It was a perfect sunny day like a lot have been on my trip so far and I zipped along with no problems at all. I stopped off in Cleveland for a couple hours to wander the city. I have to say I was surprised at how great the vibe was. The city was bustling and downtown is filled with stadiums, parks, restaurants and more. Talk about the place for a sports lover! The Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame is right in the city center too. I had to get a quick shot of the peacock guitar (I wonder why:):
I thought this giant FREE stamp was cool at Willard Park nearby too:
I’m not sure what this area was with sidewalk cafe’s and people milling around, but it looked like it’d be the hopping place on a weekend night or after catching a game so I snapped a photo as I drove by. (I’m getting good at that when I can’t find parking!):
I can’t remember who introduced me to Cool Cleveland a while back, or if I have written about this site before- but here it is (maybe again.) I emailed back and forth with the guy that started the site about a year or so ago after someone sent me the link. This is the place to find out what’s happening in this great Ohio city. Apparently the site started by accident like a lot of these community events sites; Someone sends emails to friends about what’s going on around town/puts up blog posts about social events, people start following and boom- all access entertainment site is born. It’s an excellent resource for finding something fun to do if you live or are visiting there.
This time around my visit wasn’t very long, but I can say I think It’d be a blast to go back for a long weekend and take advantage of the variety of places to play in the city of Progress and Prosperity. I’ll be back Cleveland!
