Though ranked only 23rd among Cleveland Area attractions, this ranking belies the fact that four of the top 10 rated attractions are PART of University Circle, including both #1 (Severance Hall) and #2 (the Art Museum). To me that makes it #1 by a large margin!

My husband and I didn't get to explore as much of University Circle as we had liked, but from what we saw, there was a lot to see and do. We recommend checking it out and going to Little Italy!

I am a member at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens, the Cleveland Art Museum and the Circle with Cleveland orchestra...I love it all and could truly spend my days and nights in University Circle.

University Circle offers the CWRU campus, great museums (Art, Natural History, Historical Society, Auto Museum), interesting architecture (don't miss the Geary-designed business school) and the beautiful botanical gardens. On a nice day, it's a lovely place to walk around, and because everything is so close together, you can hit several attractions in a relatively short period of time. Make sure... More

We took the public transit healtline on Saturday to spend the day at University Circle and were sadly disappointed. The visitors center was closed and it was difficult to figure out where the museum was. As well the art gallery was closed due to construction.We did however venture to Little Italy and then walked to the cemetary.

Through the summer there are concerts every Wednesday evening on the lawn in front of the museum. It is so much fun and free. Good music, food, or bring your own. This is a definite to go.

In my opinion, this is the heart and cultural center of Cleveland. If your stay is more than a day then definitely plan to check out the many places of interest in this area of the city: The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Cleveland Botanical Gardens, The Natural History Museum, The Western Reserve Historical Society, Severence Hall, The Museum of...

I've had one of the best date nights at UC. First it is within walking distance of Little Italy, where we had dinner. Then we walked to Menchies for some ice cream, and we ended our date at the pond in front of the museum. This is the most romantic neighborhood for a date night in all of Cleveland and... More
