There's more to Cleveland than the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame

We'd been to the Rock Hall every time we've been to Cleveland. On a lovely sunny summer day (a rare experience), the botanical garden was just the place to be. The outdoor gardens... read more

We'd been to the Rock Hall every time we've been to Cleveland. On a lovely sunny summer day (a rare experience), the botanical garden was just the place to be. The outdoor gardens were not particularly special, compared to others we've seen. But the Glass House, with a Madagascar desert and a Costa Rica rain forest were mesmerizing. So much... More

It is nice, not very big. We had about a forty five minute visit. It was fine for adults but is really designed for kids. We recommend it for a family with young kids

We attended a luncheon here and it was lovely. The grounds and gardens are well laid out, and although we only saw a small portion of them, this is definitely a place to come back to and spend more time in. I'd love to see it in late spring, although late summer is always a beautiful time for most gardens.

The indoor Glass House is home to many colorful butterflies in a tropical jungle environment. A sharp eye may also spot some brightly hued little birds. Most the the botanical garden is outdoors, so hope for good weather. Trails lead one through a variety of styles and flowers. A tree house and other exhibits on which one may climb will... More

I'm definitely going back to this place because last time we didn't get a chance to see every part of it and it seems that we missed lots of fun stuff. In addition to the beautiful botanicals there are many fun things for the kids to enjoy!

It may not be as large as some other botanical gardens, but Cleveland's Botanical Garden is a gem. Located at the edge of University Circle, you leave the world behind when you're in this beautiful garden. We usually stay at the Glidden House when in the area, and walking across the street to the garden is our first stop when... More

The treehouse exhibit was a blast - so many to climb through, prepare to spend hours. Especially liked the music themed ones and the boot. Simply awesome.

My favorite place to see when I am in Cleveland. A beautiful oasis within the city. The gardens are meticulously maintained. Plants and trees are marked. Multi-level areas with different garden themes.
