Take a guided tour through the herb, rose, and woodlands gardens (among others) at the Cleveland Botanical Garden, then end up in the steamy glasshouse, where you’ll walk through waterfalls while birds flutter by and, at 2pm each day, newly hatched butterflies take flight for the first time.
In what we like to think of as the ultimate tree fort, this new installation at the Holden Arboretum takes you 120ft above the trees and gives you a view clear out to Lake Erie.
Little Italy bustles with a seamless mix of new neighbors and old-school charm -- charm that's best exemplified by “Cleveland’s oldest restaurant,” Guarino’s, where a piano serenades you during dinner. And of course, a trip to the historic district wouldn’t be complete without a cannoli from Corbo’s.
Not quite an island, this lakefront park is home to a marina where you can dock your boat or just stroll along Lake Erie and watch the sun set. Sit on the large outdoor patio at Whiskey Island Still & Eatery and enjoy live music with a great backdrop.
