Get to Know Cleveland

Cleveland is located in the Midwest on the shores of Lake Erie. Approximately 400,000 people live in Cleveland proper, and nearly 2.1 million live in the metropolitan area. 

The city rose to prominence during the steel and manufacturing era, and while these industries still exist to some extent, Cleveland has undergone an incredible revival and become a destination for healthcare, education and entertainment.

Cleveland currently boasts more than $17 billion in capital developments, $2.7 billion of which is tourism-related.
