Such a mix of modern and historic buildings in one area from Severance Center, Cleveland Clinic, Case Western Reserve, the Cleveland Art Museum and the many churches and restaurants in the area. The cultural gardens on MLK Drive are beautiful to see in the spring with the flowering trees in bloom. Truly a great cultural area of Cleveland with many... More

It may be a bit of a schlep from downtown, but the 20-25 minutes is worth it. If you take Euclid Avenue, you can see all the sculpture in the median of the road as well as lots and lots of medical facilities and educational facilities. Nice Gardens, the amazing Orchestra Hall, the Botanical Gardens, the Cleveland Museum of Art,... More

Beautiful area in stark contrast to the run-down areas of Cleveland near Case Western. Look for the area of Little Italy up the hill after driving through the Case Western campus.

The Circle is surrounded by Cleveland's important cultural institutions, but not a nice place to walk as distances are great and there is a lot of traffic. Recent gentrification has added some restaurants and cafes.

So much to do in University Circle. From walking around to all the stores, you will never be bored. Definitely visit.

A place where Cleveland's Citizens gather to celebrate, and attend events, concerts. A wonderful place to visit spring, summer and fall.

This is truly one of the most unique and culturally rich places in the country. I grew up in the area and went there repeatedly. The Cleveland Museum of Art is world class, as is the Ballet, Botanical Gardens... I could go on and on!

My long standing favorite is the Cleveland Museum of Art, always free!. Special exhibits will occur a fee, but membership allows free entry for a member and half price or less, depending on your membership level Cleveland Museum of Natural History recently renewed and always a gate to the natural world. These are just two of the many attractions in... More
