Reasons to Visit Cleveland
A Lake Erie cultural hub, Cleveland's heralded arts and music scene is making a comeback. Don't miss the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and work in a theater show, free museum, or sporting event. University Circle's bars and Asian eateries attract locals and visitors, and Edgewater Park and Pier are a must for lakefront fun and relaxation.
When to Visit Cleveland
Dramatically affected by the seasons, the city of Cleveland is best visited outside of the cold and snowy winter months. Spring, summer, and fall are loaded with festivals and outdoor events like Neocycle and Front International's citywide art exhibits. Kayaking on the lake and river or biking are popular whenever weather permits.
