A culturally diverse city situated on the shores of Lake Erie, Cleveland boasts many places to visit, such as world-class museums, popular amusement parks, and sprawling recreational areas.

There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, try to win big at JACK Cleveland Casino, and stroll around The Mall.
