What puts Cleveland on the tourism map is not the presence of a world wonder, or the mark of some memorable moment in history, but the sheer density and variety of cultural and artistic attractions the city has to offer. Cleveland features some of the most renowned and unique museums, galleries and performing arts centers in the United States.

If you have never traveled to Cleveland before, your first stop should be the city’s University Circle. Host to the highest concentration of cultural institutions in the U.S., the district’s 550 acres contain the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, and the Museum of Natural History to name a few. Severance Hall, winter home to the renowned Cleveland Orchestra, can also be found there. Further along you will discover the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with memorabilia from some of the modern music industry’s greatest contributors on display.
Winter can be chilly in Ohio, so it’s best to book your tickets to Cleveland for some time between May and September. Spice up your trip with some live theatrical performances at Playhouse Square, or enjoy the orchestra at their summer home at the Blossom Music Center.
