A Weekend in Cleveland

We get a few DM’s a week asking for recommendations on what to do while in town. One of our FAVORITE things to do is to play tour guide when friends are in town – it is SO fun to surprise them with a side of the city they may not have been expecting. We’ve been exploring Cleveland for a few years so I can only tell you about the places we’ve experienced firsthand, but it’ll at least get you headed in the right direction. That being said, here is our Unofficial Guide to a Fun Weekend in The Land. I obviously don’t expect you to make it to every place on the list, I only expect you to try 😉
