What are some fun things to do in Cleveland, Ohio?
In addition to shopping one of the many epic flea markets in Cleveland (hiya, Jamie's!), here are some other fun things to do in Cleveland, Ohio:
- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Did you know that the term rock and roll was coined in Cleveland and that the first rock and roll concert was held here in 1952? That's a big part of why Cleveland beat out New York City as the location for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Located right on Lake Erie in an iconic geometric building designed by famed architect I M PEi, this museum houses six floors of memorabilia and exhibits that follow the history and development of Rock and Roll.
- West Side Market. Many people don’t realize just how old and historic the Cleveland area is. A prime example of its long-spanning history is the West Side Market in Ohio City, which has been operating since 1840 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This famous market is located in a Byzantine-inspired Neoclassical building with a 137-foot-tall clock tower rising above more than a hundred vendor stalls that offer produce, meat, fish, baked items, artisanal crafts, flowers, and much more. During your visit, check out the prepared and ready-to-eat foods from West Side Market vendors Steve’s Gyros, Frank’s Bratwurst, and Pierogi Palace. It's a natural follow-up to your flea market perusing at Jamie's!
- Cleveland Museum of Art. Founded in 1913 “for the benefit of all the people forever,” the Cleveland Museum of Art is one of the country’s most distinguished cultural institutions and one of the top Cleveland attractions. The museum has a fantastic collection of more than 60,000 artworks that span over 5,000 years; some of the collections boast works from ancient Egypt, as well as world-renowned masterpieces from Europe, Asia, and Africa.
- Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo spans nearly 200 acres of pure beauty, and it’s free for Cuyahoga County and Hinckley residents to visit on Mondays. The zoo is home to a wide variety of animals; From the 15-acre space at the Elephant Crossing to the eight-acre Australian Adventure exhibit, to the 140,000-square-foot Primate Forest which includes one of the largest primate populations in North America.
