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.

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.

Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine

Reviewed By GREG M - Euclid, Ohio

My wife and I have visited and taught classes at this Marian Shrine frequently across the past decade. One of those classes even covered the History of the Catholic Church. What we came to realize this past summer, however, was that there was a great deal of the Shrine's history that needed to be told. We heard rumors from the Trinitarian Sisters there that the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) had appeared there at least once before it had even become a Shrine. Those same Sisters, however, had no access to the records of the Shrine from the time when it was first started by another religious order, the Good Shepherd Sisters. As a degreed, certified and published historian, I agreed to research the subject for them. Remarkably, Cleveland Diocesan archives confirmed the rumors. On April 28,1870, the Blessed Virgin appeared and spoke to Mrs. Judith (aka "Julia") Harms on the very spot where today stands the BVM statue in the Shrine's grotto. Julia asked her husband to mark the spot, which he did with two evergreens (one on each side of where the BVM stood). Successors to those two evergreens still mark the spot to this day. For the next 50 years, Catholic clergy (including Cleveland's Bishop Gilmour, Euclid's Rev. Martin, and the Good Shepherd Sisters) visited the 'Harms Farm' and heard the apparition story. Then, in 1920, the Harms Farm was sold to the Good Shepherd Sisters, who renamed it "Providence Heights". Six years later, in 1926, it was dedicated (by Cleveland's Bishop Schrembs) as a local Shrine to Our Lady of Lourdes. Then, in 1927, Bishop Schrembs (who had come from Toledo) asked about the Marian apparition history of the Shrine's Euclid site. He was then provided with a pertinent witness statement, as well as a newspaper article, by the Mother Superior, who confessed her belief in the apparition's authenticity. One year later, in 1928, Bishop Schrembs rededicated the very same site as the National American Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, leading a citywide procession of tens of thousands to along with many prominent clergy (including Cincinnati's archbishop and leading clerics from Washington DC.) The witness statement regarding the 1870 Marian apparition to Julia Harms was published widely in the diocese for the next 25 years with the official seal of approval ("Imprimatur") by various Cleveland bishops (Archbishop Schrembs, Archbishop Hoban, Bishop/Cardinal Krol) while (and for a short time after) the Good Shepherd Sisters managed the Shrine. But when the Trinitarian Sisters took over the Shrine in the 1950's, the Marian apparition history of the site began to gradually be forgotten. So that by the time they published their own version of the Shrine's history in the 1970's, there was no longer any mention of the Marian apparition(s) there at all. Forty years after that, several Trinitarians repeat the rumored apparition story, the legend, to us, and ask for our help. They wanted to know if it was true. Now they and all can know that the Diocesan archives have confirmed it as worthy of belief. The "Imprimatur" was given to the story for sharing by three different bishops in three different decades. Now we know why there is such heavenly peace on this heavenly site. Heaven itself visited here in 1870, and has continued to anoint it for almost 150 years to this very day.

This castle is inside a Cleveland Metropark and is free to stop at. There is plenty of room to picnic on the grounds as well as some pavilions where parties could be held. The castle itself is neat to see and is empty on the inside but there are plaques describing what was in each room. A nice side trip when travelling through the area.

My girlfriend and I stopped after a long day of shopping.

The staff was friendly and attentive. We sat outside near the fire and ordered a food and cheese plate. The fruit was fresh and the plate was filled with crackers and cheese. A nice generous size.

Definately worth a stop, it was quaint but still had a nice crowd.

Euclid Creek Reservation

Reviewed By WHMeg - Willoughby Hills, Ohio

If you're looking for a park in an urban location that provides both picnicking areas and a paved walking trail, this is the park for you. Be warned that the paved trail goes uphill from the parking lot and Highland Picnic Area up to and past the Quarry Picnic Area. Of course, you can just do part of it, but it is a one way and not a loop trail, so you may want to check the website map before you start your hike!
