Cleveland
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Marblehead Lighthouse State Park and Maumee Bay State Park. Take a break from the city and head to Main Street Beach and Lakeview Park. Go for a jaunt from Cleveland to Put in Bay to see Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial about 1h 25 min away. Spend the 21st (Sat) exploring nature at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Lake View Cemetery and pause for some serene contemplation at St John's Cathedral.
