Cleveland is another midwestern big city with a Great Lake view much like Chicago though in a smaller, perhaps more livable package. In fact, along with nearby Pittsburgh, it was deemed the most livable city in the US in 2005. It's a city I've always wanted to make a stop in but for some reason, it was always a bit out of the way or at the tail end of other trips that had me tired out.
This could have very easily happened once again on our 2008 trip around the western US. It was going on six months when we found ourselves driving from the middle of Indiana to Pittsburgh and while Cleveland was a slight detour, we did just that for lunch. That lunch was at famed Great Lakes Brewing. Though the drive in was through a poverty stricken area that had me questioning not only our lunch choice but our country's decision to fight wars when what we are rhetorically protecting needs so much help on the home front.
Once in town, it seems pleasant enough. Home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it would be nice to spend an afternoon and evening here. Great Lakes Brewing was a worthy place to eat and the beer was even better than expected.
Cleveland is well served by mass transit but we were on the tail end of a six month trip traveling around the US... more travel advice
