Two Days In Cleveland, What to Do?

My 18 year old son and I will be in Cleveland on June 5th and 6th. We are planning on visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Christmas Story house for sure. Other than that, we are open to suggestions.

We like the theatre, but just seems there is nothing going on that weekend in Playhouse Square or am I just missing it?

We also like music (except country, I saw Sugarland is performing) but seems that is a strike out also. Talk about strike outs, the Indians are out of town that weekend also! :)

University Circle and Little Italy sound promising. There is always Cedar Point.

1. Re: Two Days In Cleveland, What to Do?

There are some websites that you can visit to see if anything else is going on:





If your son likes football, the Football Hall of Fame is located in Canton, not quite an hour south of Cleveland - straight down I-77.

Cleveland Art Museum, Natural History Museum, the Western Reserve Historical Society, Cleveland Botanical Gardens - all located in University Circle.

If you like nature and hiking, you can visit the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and walk along the Towpath Trail. Beautiful scenery. Lots of trails and they have recreational activities.

Interested in hearing what you ended up doing. We'll be there for a couple of days in July and wanted to get some tips (other than the R&RHOF).

The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Museum of Natural History, The Arcade, the U.S.S. Cod, the Steamship Mather, West Side Market, and Cleveland MetroPark Zoo all are within 15 minutes of downtown. Check Playhouse Square Center, the Cleveland Playhouse, Quicken Loans Arena, livenation.com, and the Wolstein Center for events.


Holden Arboretum and Lake Metropark Farmpark are about 30 minutes east of downtown. Blossom Music Center is about 30 minutes south of downtown.

Cedar Point and the Lake Erie islands are one hour west of downtown. Ohio Amish Country, Malabar Farm State Park and the Pro Football Hall of Fame are one to two hours south of downtown.

Read through the forums, things to do, or the resolved questions in the Yahoo Answers travel category for more information.

Have fun in Cleveland.
