Overview of Cleveland

Overview of Cleveland

Located on the southern shore of Lake Erie, Cleveland and its many ethnic neighborhoods offer a wealth of cultural and recreational attractions.

Lakefront and Sports. Our harbor area features the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Great Lakes Science Center and Cleveland Clinic OMNIMAX Theater, and the Cleveland Browns football stadium. Cleveland also is home to Indians baseball and Cavaliers basketball.

Culture. Cleveland Clinic is located near University Circle, the center of the city's cultural and educational offerings. Around the Circle are Case Western Reserve University, Severance Hall (home of the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra), the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural History and the Cleveland Botanical Garden, to name but a few.

Shopping. Just outside of Downtown Cleveland are shopping havens featuring a number of high-end retailers. Beachwood Place, La Place, Eton and Legacy Village are located on Cleveland's East Side; Crocker Park is located on Cleveland's West Side.

Parks and Recreation. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Cedar Point amusement park offer fun for the entire family. The Metroparks that surround the city are perfect for golfing, hiking, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and ice skating.
