Tower City connects the tourist to shopping, restaurants, and transportation. Outside of Tower City is the Trolley bus line where you Smile and Ride for free! The security staff is extremely helpful with respect to directions or their opinion about certain shopping locations.

Loved being able to purchase souvenirs, have lunch, and visit a casino all in the same place! We shopped, had a nice lunch at Charlie's Subs, and gambled a few dollars in the casino before venturing out to see the city. This is another must see when visiting Cleveland!

My hubby and I were in Cleveland for the Memorial Day long weekend and we were looking for something to do on our last day. The Terminal Tower was an inexpensive way to get a 360 degree view of Cleveland. The observation deck is opened only on the weekends starting in April. You can purchase your tickets online and print... More

Tower City has long been a missed opportunity for development and retail Downtown. While occasionally hosting some interesting events (like the Cleveland International Film Festival), it is mostly a ghost town with little to no compelling shopping or dining opportunities. The fountain's little show is worth a watch, though.

I used to enjoy taking my kids to explore this grand venue. But, then it became yuk! We walked thru all of the concourses at Christmas Time, and it was very appealling. Security had been greatly increased and you could feel safe. I used to marvel at the Blimp decorations, and they were not there, such a loss. Sometimes maintaining... More

Now it's just sad. Mainly cheap junk stores and kiosks, selling bling and the like. Everyone has to be somewhere, I suppose, and they all congregate here. The casino is bringing people in but can't think of any reason why anyone would come here. Hard to believe that Fendi, Disney, Barneys, Bally, etc used to be here. At the rate... More

I read a bunch of reviews before coming here so my expectations were fairly low. It is kind of sad to read reviews from the locals about what this place used to be and what it is now. The Tower City Center looks amazing at first glance, nice fountains and historic architecture then it starts to sink in that your... More

Tower city was the place to go when I was a kid. Now there is nothing to do there. Very few shops and no one is around. Disappointing.

This a beautiful mall with great detail in the building and fountains.. Not a great place to shop most of the stores were closed or way over priced! It was a great walk through and see all the beautiful details in this old building.
