We visited University Circle as there are a number of things in the area. We dined at a restaurant there, visited the Cleveland Museum of Art and Severance Hall, and walked around the Case Western campus. It is a nice are to walk around on a good day if you are already there. Not worth a special trip.

There are two RTA train stations off to the south (Mayfield and E 119th near MOCA and Cedar University near Case Western Reserve), or you can take the Euclid bus which brings you into the middle of everything. Note the... More

I came back for a school reunion and was very pleasantly surprised by the vibrancy and activity in the area. The museums, shops and and cafes as well as all the CWRU amenities and the University Hospitals made my visit very enjoyable. Quite a change and a good one--all the students seemed very happy.

This is the type of area that if I were a local I would frequent quite often just to walk around and enjoy the sites. This is a must see for anyone visiting the Cleveland area!
