So I had the opportunity to go to Cleveland at the first of the month on business. Knowing that I had around three hours of free time the last day I was up there, I decided to find some cool & interesting things in Cleveland.
I tried searching the hip travel sites and shopping blogs, but very little came up. In fact, Gridskipper's advice was just to avoid the entire city. So, I turned to Yelp.
At Yelp, I happily uncovered Revive, Tommy's Restaurant, and a now defunct indie pharmacy that lead me to Dave's Market. There were a few things I didn't get to like the "Guardians of Traffic" and Cleveland's West Side Market, supposedly the largest indoor/outdoor market in the U.S. However, in all, I think it was a solid three hours well spent.
The following posts highlight the stores, areas, and great concert I was able to fit in while doing some research.
