Renaissance Cleveland Hotel
Cleveland, Ohio

You may be familiar with the phrase "Cleveland Rocks" made popular by the Drew Carey Show, and not only are Cleveland natives proud of their busy city, but as the home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland actually does rock. The Greater Cleveland area extends 100 miles along the Lake Erie shoreline, and the Cleveland/Akron metro area consists of nearly 3 million residents.

The waterfront area, about 30 miles from downtown is considered Lakeside Cleveland, and features Ohio's nicest beach, Headlands Beach State Park.

Cleveland has several museums, popular shopping malls, and distinctive cultural options for theater, music and dance. Browns football and Indians baseball have cult followings and draw thousands of travelers each year to see a home game. Some of the city’s best nightlife and entertainment options are found in the historic Warehouse District and on Cleveland’s E. 4th Street. In each area there are numerous bars, pubs, and clubs, and a wide selection of dining options.
