This is truly one of the most unique and culturally rich places in the country. I grew up in the area and went there repeatedly. The Cleveland Museum of Art is world class, as is the Ballet, Botanical Gardens... I could go on and on!

My long standing favorite is the Cleveland Museum of Art, always free!. Special exhibits will occur a fee, but membership allows free entry for a member and half price or less, depending on your membership level Cleveland Museum of Natural History recently renewed and always a gate to the natural world. These are just two of the many attractions in... More

Whether the art museum, history museum, Severence Center and the Orchestra University Circle is a MUST SEE. The Wade Oval provides a great place to spend a sunny picnic. The Art Museum is world Class. Cleveland was lucky enough to have our top citizens donate so much of the land to us for historic preservation. Spend a day here. You... More

Really nice place to take a walk after a concert at Severance Hall or just a walk on its own. There is a pond in the center and many buildings for Case Western Reserve, CIM, and CIA. The art gallery is also nearby.

University circle is a beautiful center in Cleveland full of culture. The architecture is awesome and the park is lovely. Severance hall and the museums can be accessed. You feel Ike you in a different country when you're here, let alone downtown Cleveland. Lots of easy parking options. Great for a stroll. Lots of restaurants around. I always love coming... More

With a mix of history, universities, libraries, museums, and parks, we didn't have enough time to explore the area during our 3 day stay. Local public transportation is easy and some of it is free. We've never visited Cleveland before and found this area very enjoyable.
