Only one night to see Cleveland

My husband and I are driving cross country. We want to stop in Cleveland because we've heard good things, but the only way to schedule it is to get there around 6 pm and leave around 10 the next morning. Any recommendations for good food and things to do that aren't closed at night would be appreciated! I've love to get an idea of the city and feel like we used our time there well, instead of just hitting the hotel bar and breakfast :)

Do you know what day of the week you'll be there, or, better yet, the date or approximate date? What are your interests?

All three of Cleveland's major league sports venues are located downtown. There are two entertainment/dining districts downtown -- East 4th St. and the Warehouse District. Cleveland now has a full-service downtown casino. Check out Wilbert's for live entertainment downtown.

The TA restaurant reviews are pretty accurate IMO. If you tell us your budget and culinary favorites, we could make more specific recommendations.

You may be able to stop in the morning at the West Side Market on your way west, depending upon your day of travel through Cleveland. It opens at 7 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Do you like jazz or any other form of music?

Check out events at PlayhouseSquare or Severance Hall.

This travel article may help, although perhaps dated or incomplete.

Unfortunately, the Janis Joplin play only ran through Aug. 19. Sorry.

Here's the PlayhouseSquare schedule, which is light in August and September.

Also, check Blossom Music Center in the Cleveland day trips travel article in post 1, both the Blossom Music Festival and livenation.com.

If you are staying at a downtown hotel, they can help you find events and things to do when you are here. Most have shuttles that will take you to your destination. Cleveland has some great restaurants, 3 teams, plays, casino, rock hall, and many cultural events. Enjoy your stay.
