8. We don’t hang out at Cedar Point every weekend
Of course, there’s absolutely no shame in indulging in a nostalgic love for funnel cakes and Ferris wheels, but for the sake of variety, we don’t visit our local amusement park on a weekly basis. We promise: there are other, equally entertaining places to go around here.
9. There’s so much more to Cleveland than Downtown
Don’t get us wrong, Downtown is great. But what about places like Tremont, Ohio City, or Gordon Square? These little neighborhoods are just a short drive away and offer some of the best local shopping, dining, and entertainment the city has to offer.
10. We love to complain about traffic, even though there isn’t any

Crossing sides is commonly treated as a huge ordeal, even though our destination is usually less than 45 minutes away. If only it weren’t for all that damn Cleveland traffic...
