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.)”

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.”

“Nighttown is the real deal. It’s a real joint where, if you were lucky enough to be there, you could have sat in front of the Count Basie Orchestra so close that the trombone would’ve bopped you in the nose. Or maybe you saw Freddy Cole, Jane Monheit, John Pizzarelli, Brian Auger, Ann Hampton Callaway, Tommy Tune, Basia, Cyrille Aimee, Esperanza Spaulding, Dick Cavett, Dick Gregory, Eliane Elias, Renee Rosnes, Stevie Wonder or John Legend look you right in the eye as they sang or spoke from just a few feet away. ”
