Museum
“Designed by internationally renowned architect I.M. Pei, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of Cleveland's most striking (and recognizable) pieces of architecture. The 150,000-square-foot building has a glass-enclosed, double pyramid adjacent to a 162-foot tower, both of which soar above the shores of Lake Erie. The museum honors all aspects of Rock and Roll. The museum also honors inductees to the Hall of Fame. They share stories of the people, events and songs that shape our world through exhibits, innovative programs and concerts. ”

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”

American Restaurant
“One of my personal favorite spots! The menu has no GMO's (yay!) varied menu for any vegan, keto, paleo etc. diets. They have two areas in the restaurant - one for typical eat in with a great bar as well and the other more like a cafe where you can spend an afternoon working and drinking organic soda!!! Great spot to visit with kids too; I suggest the skillet cookie for kids of ALL ages ;)”

Diner
“THIS IS THE BEST!!! The diner is cute, great atmosphere and the food is HIGH QUALITY! The best breakfast in town. Before 11 you will beat the rush and if you have to be on the list you wait in your car. Which I don't mind, if I am with friends I get to talk to them longer!”
