Cleveland Museum of Art

The Cleveland Museum of Art was founded in 1913 "for the benefit of all the people forever." Renowned for the quality and breadth of its collection, the museum includes almost 45,000 objects and spans 6,000 years of achievement in the arts. The museum is a significant international forum for exhibitions, scholarship, performing arts and art education and recently completed an ambitious, multi-phase renovation and expansion project across its campus. One of the top comprehensive art museums in the nation and free of charge to all, the Cleveland Museum of Art is located in the dynamic University Circle neighborhood.

This museum is a gem for the city of Cleveland. We had to drive quite a bit to get here, but it was worth it. Well curated, interesting pieces, and a great breadth of art. We arrived just after the museum had opened and stayed, with a break for lunch, until closing, and it was not enough.

Tinkers Creek Viaduct Park

Reviewed By lilirishstar - North Canton, Ohio

Just off of busy Broadway, down Willis St, past the backside of businesses, through a mixed residential and industrial neighborhood, along the railroad tracks sits a small parking lot and fenced in old viaduct. We actually said, where are we and what is this? Gladly we headed down the paved pathway, started reading the signs and found an amazing site. The path was easy to walk and the views were quite nice. Interesting area for sure.

Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage

Reviewed By Stephen B

It was interesting to learn about Jews settling in America besides NYC. Exhibits were informative and the section on WW2 was well done. We toured the exhibit on our own, but there is a docent led tour twice a week. Several items brought back pleasant memories.

Cedar Lee Cinema

First opening its doors on Christmas Day 1925 as an 1,100 seat, single-screen theater, the Cedar Lee Theatre was transformed into a twin-screen theater in 1983 to compete with the increasing number of multiplexes and to meet the demand to play an ever growing number of specialty films. Two Hollywood-style screening rooms were added in 1991 - allowing guests to the theater to enjoy truly specialized films. Finally in 1994 two modern stadium-style theaters were added to bring the current screen count to six. For more than three decades the words "Cedar Lee Theatre" and "specialty film" have been synonymous in Cleveland. Ushering in an era when specialty film would transcend art-house appeal, and coupled with its unique concession stand the first to offer baked goods, sandwiches, specialty coffee drinks, and imported beer and wine the Cedar Lee Theatre continues to be the movie theater of choice for many Greater Clevelanders.

We went to see this movie based on the end of actress Gloria Grahame with my mother-in-law who used the closed captioning device provided by the theater. Nifty doohickey! She had no trouble following the film. The small, stadium are seats were unexpectedly comfortable, too. A Good place to see indie and foreign films.

Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park

The Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park is Cleveland's premiere Gaming, Dining and Entertainment destination. In addition to bringing more than 2,200 of the latest VLT (video lottery terminal) games, the Rocksino rocks a 2,600 capacity Hard Rock Live theater, a 300-seat comedy club and a Hard Rock Cafe with its own performance stage.

Reviewed By Dave S - Cleveland, Ohio

I've put off concerts at the Rocksino for years, but finally snagged some cheap tix and was anxious to really check it out. Venue was easy access/parking. Crowd moved easily through very efficient concert entrance and beer/wine service area. Restrooms very handy. Ushers were great....MoreHi Dave, thank you for taking the time to write this review. Your comments about the seating in Hard Rock Live have been shared with members of management and we look forward to being able to serve you in the future.

Winking Lizard Tavern

Reviewed By foodguy1965 - Solon, Ohio

We went to the Bedford Heights location of the winking lizard on Sunday evening. The food was mediocre at best. The ribs & wings were dry. The half BBQ chicken, once we got it, was also dry and over cooked. Our server decided it would be a good idea to not write anything down. It didn't work! It never does! We received the wrong bourbon, the wrong chicken dinner, forgot the salad, side of ranch & side of hot sauce. Then he disappeared for 15 minutes so I went to the bar to get another drink. He never cleared anything until we left the table and to top it off he referred to our 12 year old as "brother". Sorry the only one at the lizard that night that could call him that was his sister, not you my friend! A little too informal even for the Lizard.

Chagrin Waterfalls

Reviewed By Betty93ha - Beachwood, Ohio

the waterfalls is easily seen--as a matter of fact if you're sitting at a window, it can be seen from Jekyll's restaurant window, while you're eating--it make it different from restaurants--the food is excellent--it's crowded so that proves that it's a place enjoyed by many.

Pinot's Palette

Pinot’s Palette is the premier Paint and Sip Party venue in Northeast Ohio. Join us for an event mixed with painting, wine, music and laughs. We take care of the details – you just have a great time! Our fun-filled painting classes are perfect for a Girls’ Night Out, Date Night, a Bridal Shower, Birthday Party, Private Parties, or a Corporate Team Building event.

Reviewed By Linda B - Cleveland, Ohio

I was teetering between 2 and 3 stars on this as some improvements are needed. I was scolded the minute I walked in for taking some food that was left out on a table. I had no idea it was for a private party. Since it was sitting there, I thought they were providing snacks. A sign would have helped clear that up. I didn't like being with "private parties" - they are too loud and need their own room. The music was also way too loud and they played the same horrible Mariah Carey Christmas song 3 times. The amount of work space you have at your table is way too small. This has potential as I did enjoy the painting experience itself and I did win a nice painting to take home. I also like being able to purchase beverages to drink while I'm painting. My 14 year old daughter enjoyed it.

WhirlyBall / Laser Sport

Reviewed By AMRossi9242 - Thermopolis, Wyoming

I've had numerous events at Whirlyball. I plan an annual Whirlyball game with my friends, and last year I took my after-school programs as part of our end - of - the - year festivities. Despite the people and experiences we've had, one thing is universal: everyone loved it!

The game is easy to learn, difficult to master, but always lots of fun to play. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this sport. Couple that with the laser tag, bowling alleys, arcade games . . . there's a lot to do here, and something for everyone!

The cost for renting a court is very reasonable, and you will definitely get your money's worth. Spilt the cost amongst the ten you need for a full game, and it comes to only ten or twenty dollars per person. The owner is extremely friendly and does his best to make everything as great as possible. Plus, its a very family orientated place. I love giving them business.

If you are planning a family event or reunion in the Cleveland area, seriously consider Whirlyball as your venue. Its outrageously fun!
