Museum
“Designed by internationally renowned architect I.M. Pei, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of Cleveland's most striking (and recognizable) pieces of architecture. The 150,000-square-foot building has a glass-enclosed, double pyramid adjacent to a 162-foot tower, both of which soar above the shores of Lake Erie. The museum honors all aspects of Rock and Roll. The museum also honors inductees to the Hall of Fame. They share stories of the people, events and songs that shape our world through exhibits, innovative programs and concerts. ”

American Restaurant

“One of my personal favorite spots! The menu has no GMO's (yay!) varied menu for any vegan, keto, paleo etc. diets. They have two areas in the restaurant - one for typical eat in with a great bar as well and the other more like a cafe where you can spend an afternoon working and drinking organic soda!!! Great spot to visit with kids too; I suggest the skillet cookie for kids of ALL ages ;)”

Park
“Edgewater beach has everything you need for a relaxing afternoon. There are walking trails, wide open green spaces, beautiful sandy beach, views of the city and Honey Hut ice cream. Edgewater is a 15 minute or less drive from here and absolutely worth it! Especially at sunset! ”

Performing Arts Venue
“From Public Square, take a short walk down Euclid Ave. and you’re suddenly surrounded by the spectacular vibrancy of historic theaters, sparkling marquees, a contemporary streetscape, bustling storefronts-turned-restaurants and a dazzling outdoor chandelier. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself uttering out loud, “Wait … where am I?” We’re talking about Playhouse Square, one of the largest performing arts centers in the United States with its impressive collection of 10 performance spaces, including five theaters restored to their original 1920s elegance. Every year, Playhouse Square hosts more than 1,000 events, including some of the biggest titles on Broadway (ever heard of "Hamilton?"). But it’s not just theater. Playhouse Square features concerts, comedy, dance performances and children’s programing to packed houses just about every night. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: When you’re here, it’s easy to forget where you are. The brilliant marquees, the shimmering outdoor chandelier and the bustling after-dinner crowd all feel more Times Square than Playhouse Square. Any one of the five main theaters in Playhouse Square — Allen Theatre, Connor Palace, Hanna Theatre, KeyBank State Theatre and Ohio Theatre — are all worth seeing in person whether there’s a show or not. All were built between 1921-1922 and restored to their original opulence in the 1970s and ‘80s. Don’t leave without getting an Insta-worthy shot of the GE Chandelier that hangs outside above East 14th Street. (As the world's largest outdoor chandelier, it’s impossible to miss.)”

New American Restaurant
“Nighttown is the real deal. It’s a real joint where, if you were lucky enough to be there, you could have sat in front of the Count Basie Orchestra so close that the trombone would’ve bopped you in the nose. Or maybe you saw Freddy Cole, Jane Monheit, John Pizzarelli, Brian Auger, Ann Hampton Callaway, Tommy Tune, Basia, Cyrille Aimee, Esperanza Spaulding, Dick Cavett, Dick Gregory, Eliane Elias, Renee Rosnes, Stevie Wonder or John Legend look you right in the eye as they sang or spoke from just a few feet away. ”

Bar
“If you like hot dogs and tater tots with a side a great live music the happy dog is the spot for you! A local favorite you can choose between fruit loops and/or a fried egg on your hot dog or more traditional options if you aren't up for all that! They have a vegetarian option too.”
