Cleveland travel tips

1) Try exploring Cleveland on a bike

Find one of the blue “Cleveland Bike” stations scattered around the city with a sign “Bike Box” and rent a two-wheeled transport to explore the city. You can ride through the whole city along the green area near Lake Erie.

2) Admire the architecture of the rail terminal at the Tower City Center in Cleveland

Opened in 1930, it remained the second tallest building in the world until 1967. The renovated Center houses plenty of shops, as well as an 11-screen movie theater. The marvelous glass-dome ceiling, marble staircases, and brass storefronts make it worth a visit.

3) Check Cleveland's cinemas for family-friendly matinees to escape the heat and save money

In summer, if the heat is oppressive or the rain is pounding Cleveland’s streets, the matinees may come in handy. Some tickets cost as little as $1! Check the websites of local cinemas, like Capitol Theatre and others.
