University Circle is the best place in Cleveland to spend a day or a whole weekend. There is so much to see and do. The fabulous Cleveland Museum of Art has FREE admission all the time. It is one of the only art museums in the country to not charge a fee to get in. The exhibits are first-rate and... More

It is a great collection of the Art museum (free admission), one of the world's best art museums, the Natural History Museum and the Botanical museum and Cleveland institute of Art, Cinematheque (Classic, can't see elsewhere films). When you are done, ask how to get to Little Italy across Euclid avenue to get some great authentic Italian cuisine. Mange!

A nice area that I would recommend HOWEVER, the area surrounding it can be a bit dangerous so I'd suggest you not go alone. The area is usually pretty safe being right by the museums, botanical garden, CWRU and CIA. Yet it is also is close to the tail end of the sketchy parts of down town Cleveland so just... More

Case Western University is here, so along with that comes a lot of stores, pretty buildings, and activities. There are several museums, even a car museum, in this area and a botanical garden. In recent years, Euclid Avenue has really blossomed with stores, apartments, and restaurants. Many students live in this area, so it is pretty lively. During the summer,... More

This area is definitely a highlight of Cleveland. I've been to all the restaurants and bakeries on Murry Hill. You have to see all of the museums. Especially the new exhibits at the Museum of Art and Case Western Reserve Historical society. There are so many other new places by CWRU to see and do.

this place has been cleaned up and fixed up a lot since I was a child. We always love the free winter events.

The region of this area of Cleveland where I was is called Wade Oval, which is a small portion of the University Circle, which contains: The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Orchestra, The Western Reserve Historical Society and Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum...and even more stuff. You could spend a lot of time here at these institutions and really... More

If you are looking for something upbeat to do on a Friday night, check out the Cleveland Museum of Art for a Mix event. If you are a member of CMA, your admission ticket is free. If you are not a member, for a fee of $10.00 you have endless entertainment from 5 - 9 p.m. Meet your friends in... More
