Destination Cleveland

Area Attractions

  • The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which welcomes more than 12 million visitors per year and features impressive collections of memorabilia – from John Lennon’s guitar to hip-hop pioneer Jam Master Jay’s gold chains. Be on the lookout for further information, as this is the location of our Friday night event!
  • “Ralphie, You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!” The “A Christmas Story” House, featured in the classic film “A Christmas Story,” is located in the Cleveland neighborhood of Tremont. In the home, you’ll admire the iconic leg lamp, take a selfie next to the Christmas tree and have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to “grimace in a pink bunny suit.” Warning: you’ll have to resist the urge to fire the Red Ryder BB gun – you might shoot your eye out!
  • Situated downtown, a short walk from our host hotel, is Progressive Field, home of MLB’s Cleveland Indians. GCC week usually includes a ball game at one end or the other – so fans can enjoy the now competitive home of “Major League’s” Indians!
  • If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, Cedar Point Amusement Park should be on your radar! Just 60 miles from downtown Cleveland and situated on the shores of Sandusky Bay, it’s worth the drive to experience this world-famous park named “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World.” Ever wonder what Lake Erie looks like 420 feet in the air while moving at 120 miles per hour? Now’s your chance!
  • For brothers who would rather be outside, Cleveland has no lack of beautiful parks. We recommend checking out the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, with 80+ miles of wilderness and beautiful views of the Cuyahoga River and Ohio and Erie Canal. The 65-foot Brandywine Falls is the park’s most photographed location, so be on the lookout!
  • “Every week is #SharkWeek” at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. The aquarium is home to nearly 5,000 species of fresh and saltwater creatures swimming through a 19th century converted power plant. And if you’ve ever wanted to feed a shark, the aquarium offers daily public feedings at least three times per week.
