Best things to do in Cleveland

Markt
“You could carve an entire trip out of Cleveland’s rich culinary history. Or you could cram much of it into one simple stop at the historic West Side Market. The indoor, European-style market has been around for more than a century and still looks like it did when it catered to the immigrant community all those years ago: vendors hawking Old-World baked goods; family-owned stands displaying their colorful produce; fishmongers offering smoked fish and eels; classic butcher cases filled with sausages and animal guts — it’s not just steaks and salmon filets, here, kids. Today it’s surrounded by the city’s hottest restaurants and breweries, turning the area on and near the corner of West 25th Street and Lorain Ave. into arguably the most happening blocks in Cleveland. But at the center of it all, is the city’s most famous grocery store. WHAT YOU’LL SEE: This is simple: Upon entering the long, narrow, granite structure, you’ll see row after row after row of vendors. More than 100, in fact. Some are there to sell locals their weekly produce and proteins. Others specialize in sausages of all types, hot sauces, baked goods and Cleveland’s beloved pierogies. Architecturally, the market is steeped in its late-Industrial-Age roots. The main structure resembles an old train station, both inside and out, and its iconic 137-foot clock tower has served as a beacon to Cleveland’s west siders since it was erected all those years ago. WHAT ELSE TO DO? Before you even think about hitting up the many neighboring bars and restaurants, you need to try the ample ready-to-eat selections at the market itself. There are several prepared-foods booths where you can try local bratwurst sandwiches and hot dogs, or international delights like crepes, falafel and Cambodian sticky rice. When you’re done at the market, remember, you’re still in Ohio City. Go to the breweries and brewpubs. Within just a few blocks you can hit some of the landmarks: Market Garden, Nano Brew Cleveland and the godfather of Cleveland’s recent craft beer boom, Great Lakes Brewing Company.”

Museum
“Designed by I. M. Pei and structurally engineered by Leslie E. Robertson Associates, the building rises above the shores of Lake Erie. It is a combination of geometric forms and cantilevered spaces that are anchored by a 162-foot tower. The tower supports a dual-triangular-shaped glass "tent" that extends (at its base) onto a 65,000-square-foot plaza that provides a main entry facade. The building houses more than 55,000 square feet of exhibition space, as well as administrative offices, a store, and a café. "In designing this building," Pei said, "it was my intention to echo the energy of rock and roll. I have consciously used an architectural vocabulary that is bold and new, and I hope the building will become a dramatic landmark for the city of Cleveland and for fans of rock and roll around the world. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, located in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, on the shore of Lake Erie, recognizes and archives the history of the best-known and most influential artists, producers, engineers, and other notable figures who have had some major influence on the development of rock and roll. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation was established on April 20, 1983, by Ahmet Ertegun, founder and chairman of Atlantic Records. In 1986, Cleveland was chosen as the Hall of Fame's permanent home”

“Located minutes away in historic Cedar-Lee District (walkable), for more than three decades the words "Cedar Lee Theatre" and "specialty film" have been synonymous in Cleveland. Ushering in and maintaining an era when specialty film would transcend art-house appeal, and coupled with its unique concession stand the first to offer baked goods, sandwiches, specialty coffee drinks, and imported beer and wine, the Cedar Lee Theatre continues to be the movie theater of choice for many Greater Clevelanders.”

History Museum
“You’ll see rotating temporary exhibits all year long and a permanent collection that includes “Lucy,” our 3.2 million-year-old human ancestor, a full-sized replica of a T-rex and the 70-foot-long, 14-foot-tall skeleton of “Happy,” the oldest sauropod on display in the world. Steggie, the iconic, full-sized Stegosaurus sculpture that has guarded the gates for more than 50 years, is pretty hard to miss. The original Steggie was created by the same sculptors who were commissioned to make life-sized dinosaur sculptures for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Bone lovers are in luck — this museum has lots of them. The Hamann-Todd Collection is a well-known set of more than nearly 4,000 human and primate skeletons — including “Lucy” — that were assembled as far back as 1893. And, of course, there are the dinosaur bones that comprise the Kirtland Hall of Prehistoric Life. Look for the Coelophysis bauri, which, at 225 million years old, is the museum’s oldest dinosaur. If you’re interested in learning about our own indigenous flora and fauna, check out the newly renovated Perkins Wildlife Center. The sprawling, two-acre landscape located within the outdoor footprint of the museum includes enclosures for both local avaria and bobcats, as well as a forest-canopy-covered trail. WHAT ELSE TO DO? Every third Wednesday, the museum hosts its Think & Drink events for adults, starting at 5 p.m. The events usually center around a topic (previous ones include “Life After Death” and “Beer and Beyond: Fermentation”) and are paired with a visiting local brewery. It’s the study group you always wished you’d had. Every Wednesday that does not include a Think & Drink event is another science and alcohol pairing — Museum Under the Stars. Guests can take in a viewing session at the Ralph Mueller Observatory as they eat and sip wine and beer selections from famed Cleveland chef and restaurateur Zack Bruell’s in-museum restaurant, Exploration. The Observatory is part of the Nathan and Fannye Shafran Planetarium, which, with its stargazing and constellation-sighting opportunities, is worth a nighttime visit — whether you’re drinking or not.”
