Comeback City: Cleveland Professional Review and Guide
"Once called the “Mistake on the Lake” and the butt of national jokes because of pollution, financial instability, and race riots, Cleveland certainly has come a long way, baby. Public and private sectors also combined forces to spiff up downtown, the Flats, and other urban districts, so bars, restaurants, shops, and other businesses could move in.
The ethnic blend of the city—African-American, German, Italian, Jewish, Polish, and more recently, Latino—lends flavor and individuality to various neighborhoods such as Little Italy and Ohio City, which have become draws in themselves. When visiting Cleveland, it’s always difficult to choose what to do. The only way around this is to return, again and again, because there’s always something new and different. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Columbus. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
