While I didn't have time to check out the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during my brief two-day visit, I came to the conclusion that Cleveland definitely knows how to rock AND roll. A city with a cool vibe, friendly people, breweries galore, delectable food, and fine architecture.
I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay than the Cleveland Hostel. What a gem in a remarkable neighborhood! Ohio City is home to Great Lakes Brewing, phenomenal bars/restaurants, and the popular West Side Market. The Cleveland Hostel is comfy, clean, tastefully decorated, and extremely accommodating. I will be back for a summer visit to relish the rooftop deck.
Cleveland is quite walkable in the three areas I spent time in - Downtown, University Circle, and Ohio City. Public transportation is abundant, and the RTA HealthLine is a convenient way to get from downtown to University Circle. As always, I encourage walking to feel like a local.
Destination Cleveland (visitor's bureau) - I can't thank Lauren Crawford enough, CLE's finest concierge, for her patience and generous assistance regarding my late night bus dilemma!
