History
Cleveland was founded in 1796 and became a major manufacturing center. John D. Rockefeller, the founder of Standard Oil, made a majority of his fortune in Cleveland, which brought the city to become the fifth largest in the country. The Terminal Tower, located in the heart of downtown Cleveland, was once one of the world’s tallest buildings. Dedicated in 1930, the building was part of a skyscraper boom in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

Culture and Entertainment Most famously noted for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this city has points of interest and entertainment for everyone.

If you are interested in the performing arts, Cleveland Playhouse Square is noted as the second largest Performing Arts center in the United States. Also noteworthy is the Cleveland Orchestra, considered one of the finest orchestra’s in the world. To truly appreciate classical music, make sure you bring a lawn chair and see the Cleveland Orchestra perform at the beautiful Blossom Music Center, located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

The city of Cleveland has also been the spotlight of many movies including Major League, Air Force One, Happy Gilmore, Marvel’s The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Welcome to Collinwood, The Soloist, Fun Size, Antwone Fisher, A Christmas Story, and scenes of Spiderman 3. The city was also home of the popular sitcom, the Drew Carey Show.
For a historic and charming experience make sure to visit Tremont, one of the city’s oldest and most historically valuable neighborhoods. Take a stroll through a quarter mile of award-winning restaurants, shopping, and historic architecture. Tremont is known for having one of the largest concentrations of architecturally notable churches to be found anywhere in the United States.  Tremont is where you will find A Christmas Story House which has been restored and is open year round to the public for tours.

In addition to rich culture and architecture, Cleveland offers the prime location for theme park amusement. If you are looking for the biggest and best amusement park in the world, Cedar Point in Sandusky is just a short distance from the heart of Cleveland. The park boasts an impressive 69 rides (17 roller coasters), and holds the title of “Best Amusement Park in the World” for the ninth year in a row (according to Amusement Today). Cedar Point offers the latest in thrill rides and water attractions, while indoor water park resorts such as Kalahari and Great Wolf lodge give you tropical weather entertainment in the middle of winter.

Sports
Cleveland is the home of the Cleveland Indians (MLB), Cleveland Browns (NFL), and Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA). The Cleveland Indians hold the Major League record of 455 for most consecutive sold out games, while the Cleveland Cavaliers won their first NBA Championship in 2016, marking Cleveland’s first major sports title since 1964.
