Nice spot to relax in.

Public square has plenty of open space area to relax. Water fountain for kids to play in while visiting. Several things to see, adjacent to Clevelan Indians ball park.

I brought my family to the Terminal Tower observation deck in Cleveland, OH. My kids enjoyed the ride up the elevator. The view was great. You can see just about all of downtown Cleveland and Lake Erie. The observation deck is not opened all year and you must purchase timed tickets in advance thru Eventbrite. When you get to Terminal...

One of Cleveland's finest gems. Beautiful building standing elequently on Public Square. Shopping, dining and rapid transit all inside. Beautiful painted ceiling as you enter from Public Square entrance. At night, the outside tower is colorfully lit for different festivities, events and holidays.

After seeing a tweet from the Terminal Tower's twitter account (@TowerLightsCLE) I signed up myself and 5 of my friends to visit the Tower's observation deck which was open for Valentine's Day.
