World-Class Experiences Without the World-Class Ego
Grit meets sophistication in a city where you can browse indie art inside a timeworn automotive factory, hear members of the orchestra perform at the local hot dog joint or tip back a hoppy IPA while enjoying a lakefront sunset. With a rich manufacturing heritage, deep European roots and residents with an abundance of enthusiasm and pride, visitors to Cleveland enjoy a come-as-you-are attitude in a city embracing a new era of vitality.
Come see why National Geographic Traveler magazine selected Cleveland as one of the “world’s best places to visit in 2018.” From culture to sports and music to nature, engaging experiences can be found around most every corner in Cleveland.
A hotbed of musical history (fact: the term rock ‘n’ roll was created here) and a city whose soul moves for music, Cleveland is home to the world’s only Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, which offers a front row seat to inductee performances and scores of interactive music experiences. If classical music is more your beat, catch a performance from the acclaimed Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall, regarded by many as one of the world’s most beautiful concert halls.
Cleveland also offers premiere arts and culture experiences with Playhouse Square, a bustling performing arts center in the heart of downtown, and world-renowned institutions like the Cleveland Museum of Art. The city’s University Circle neighborhood is the most concentrated square mile of arts and culture institutions in the U.S.
Plus, no visitor to Cleveland leaves with an empty stomach as celebrity chefs are turning the city into an epicurean destination. The award-winning culinary scene ranges from James Beard-recognized chefs to neighborhood restaurants like Sokolowski’s which celebrate Cleveland’s strong European heritage.
A visit to Cleveland means world-class experiences without the world-class ego. And for that, you’re welcome.
