This area is full of excellent restaurants, shops, & museums. Between the incredible Cleveland Museum of Art to eating at a wide variety of restaurants, it's THE place to visit when in Cleveland, especially if you're visiting Case Western Reserve University.

We always take out of town guest here, even if we aren't going to any of the museums or attractions. The architecture, with old and new side by side is just wonderful.

The absolute best "free" summer activity in town. Offers best cultural mix, tension-free outing. Bring your chair/blanket, food (or purchase from food trucks), beverage of choice, and prepare to relax and enjoy the free concert/entertainment. Great use of tax dollars.

Yes, the Tudor Arms is a couple blocks away and there are a number of others. There are also restaurants, the best being in Little Italy. And the cafe in the Art Museum is wonderful for lunch.
