Art Museum
“The Cleveland Museum of Art is one of the greatest arts institutions in the world. Surprising, but that is not an exaggeration. It's an encyclopedic museum, so there is always something for everyone. Without traffic, it is approximately a fifteen minute drive and is guaranteed to be worth the visit. (CMA is free to the public, but closed on Mondays.)”

BBQ Joint
$$
“Really really good slow cooked ribs. Always busy. Sometimes an hour wait time. If that happens, there are other worthy restaurants on the same strip. It's across the street from the old train station that was abandoned and vacant for thirty years and has recently been bought by the Ford Motor Company to be a headquarters for their autonomous car research and development”

History Museum
“Be honest — how much do you really remember from your class field trip to the natural history museum? There is no time like your vacay in Cleveland to see what you missed — or forgot — that first time around, now that your brain is fully formed. You’ll see rotating temporary exhibits all year long and a permanent collection that includes a cast of “Lucy,” our 3.2 million-year-old human ancestor, a full-sized replica of a T-Rex and the 70-foot-long, 14-foot-tall skeleton of “Happy,” the oldest sauropod on display in the world.”
