Northeast Ohio: Home To Rock And Roll And A National Park

Strung along the Cuyahoga River and fronting Lake Erie, Cleveland is a four-season destination home to sprawling parks, vibrant museums, and quaint neighborhoods. Here you’ll find big-city attractions and small-town friendliness at the heart of Northeast Ohio.

Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for good reason – the term itself was coined here by a disc jockey. While the breathtaking museum and annual induction ceremonies are a major foundation of the city, there’s a lot more to Cleveland than music.

Hungry? The city is a veritable melting pot, and you can find incredible cuisine from around the world as well as made-in-Ohio specialties like chili dogs and corned beef.

Ready for fun? Attend a symposium at Case Western Reserve University or poke around the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Visit the vendors at the West Side Market or settle in for Fashion Cleveland – one of the industry’s biggest events.

There’s much more to this region than Cleveland, though. Hop on the Ohio Antiques Trail, start a new holiday tradition by visiting Steubenville’s Nutcracker Village, or follow the towpath at Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

No matter your passion, fun awaits in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.
