Underrated Escapes: Cleveland Ohio



If we’re talking about Cleveland’s music scene, we might as well start with the most obvious; the glass pyramid that is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The recognizable building was designed by world renowned architect I.M. Pei (also responsible for the Louvre in Paris) and is the foremost place to learn about the past present and future of Rock and Roll culture. During the summer, the Rock Hall puts on ‘Summer in the City’; a free concert series featuring up and coming artists. The Jacobs Pavilion on the Cuyahoga River books mid-level bands while the Blossom Music Center showcases all the big name bands from country to pop to rock all summer long.

Sports and Rec

Sports lovers are never left out in this city which is home to NFL, NBA and MLB teams. Get a taste of ‘Brownstown’ at First Energy Stadium where the Cleveland Browns NFL team play their home games from early Sept to late Dec. If you’re a basketball fan, the Cleveland Cavaliers run the court at Quicken Loans Arena and if baseball is your sport, the Cleveland Indians play downtown at Progressive Field and offer a fun time for everyone. There’s also a ton of minor league and college sports teams in this city so no matter the time of year you’re sure to find a game happening somewhere.
