10 Things to See and Do in Cleveland

As home to the world-famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, there’s no doubt that Cleveland rocks. But, there’s a lot more to discover in the grand city on the shores of Lake Erie. From water sports on the lake and a world class amusement park with 17 roller coasters to one-of-a-kind museums and a beautiful national park that’s just outside city limits, Cleveland is full of surprises that make for a fun and fascinating visit.

10. Tower City Complex

The shopping and entertainment complex known as Tower City in the heart of downtown on Cleveland’s Public Square is a testimonial to the city’s rise in recent years. The historic Higbee’s department store building was re-purposed in 2012 when it opened as the Horseshoe Casino, which takes advantage of the 1920s building’s Art Deco décor to offer a classic casino feel that’s different from most casinos.  Almost 100 shops and restaurants are part the Tower City complex, ranging from Morton’s Steakhouse and Hard Rock Café to Subway and Foot Locker. The Ritz-Carlton Cleveland and Renaissance Cleveland hotels also lend an elegant touch to the entertainment center, where Segway and walking tours depart. The 52-story Tower features an observation deck on the 42nd floor with sweeping views of downtown and Lake Erie. Tickets are only $5 for access to the deck, where you can see for 30 miles on clear days.
