Thanks to everyone who responded to my question about travel to
Cleveland.  I got a couple requests for a hit, so here it is!  My
original question is first followed by the responses.  I'm looking
forward to my trip!  Thanks!  -Catie
*Question:* I am going to be spending a few days in Cleveland in the
near future and am looking for advice on any not-to-miss attractions. 
Our only definite plans are to check out the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame
and to eat at Lola (our splurge meal).  I would love to hear about any
Cleveland treasures (signature dishes, fun shops, etc.) that we (2
adults) should be sure to experience!
ClevelandMuseumof Art – free admission!  Breakfast or lunch – because
they are so busy in the evening.  Get there right when they open at 11,
I think Melt Bar and Grilled ( ),
Lakewood – extremely unique grilled cheese  menu.  Too much food, go
I love the Cleveland mysteries by Les Roberts. The first one is Pepper
Pike. They certainly take you all over Cleveland and make me want to
It’s a little early I’m afraid for art walks or festivals, but I did
Music at Main (
)  Cleveland Public Library (How could I forget?)  If you are downtown,
this might be worth checking out.  In any case, the old section of the
Cleveland Public Library is beautiful.  The White Chess collection on
one of the upper floors is also a highlight.
Also if you like jazz – the Tri-C jazz fest (
) has a good reputation
The Indians are in town if you like baseball.  Nice stadium, great for
a sunny afternoon.
Great Lakes Brewery is fun.  Supposedly Elliot Ness was there and
is a bullet in the wall.  Great appetizer food.  Be sure you make
reservations for Lola.  
West Side Market

Beachwood Place / Legacy Village (shopping)
Mentor Headlands Beach Park
Chagrin Falls (cute old-time downtown area with shops and a small
Cleveland Public Library (of course, old building is beautiful, check
out the archives to see the world's smallest book, and the new building
has nice architecture)
Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Art Museum
I find "Big Fun" on either Coventry or Cliffton to be enjoyable.
Take in an Indians game if you can, the field is great!! You'll be  
close to the Great Lakes Science center, that is right next to the RR 

hall of fame.  If you belong to AAA, you can get discount tickets for 

the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, it's worth it.  You might have to go  
to a Cleveland AAA to get them, ours here in Toledo didn't sell  
them.  Even though we are two hours away!!  Shopping at Tower City is 

fun, too.
If you like multicultural foods and markets try the West Side Market
over the Lorain Carnegie Bridge (also known as the Hope memorial Bridge)
- great atmosphere and foods.
Try University Circle for Cleveland Art Museum,  Western Reserve
Historical Society, Natural History Museum, Cleveland Botanical Gardens
- all in the same area - just park and walk. The Peter B. Lewis Building
which is part of Case Western Reserve is also in walking distance and
this is an architectural wonder - you either love it or hate it, but
definitely worth seeing. Little Italy is also near University Circle and
it has great Italian restaurants and wonderful art shops and galleries.
Also nearby is Glidden House a nice restaurant housed in a former
