Forest City

A culturally diverse city situated on the shores of Lake Erie, Cleveland boasts many places to visit, such as world-class museums, popular amusement parks, and sprawling recreational areas. Founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, the city quickly became a major manufacturing center, drawing immigrants from around the globe. Today, Cleveland is one of the country's hubs for financial services, healthcare, and biomedical research. A working-class town at its core, Cleveland has come a long way in terms of tourist appeal, moving past its reputation for impersonal steel plants by revitalizing its downtown area and adding cutting-edge sports and music venues to its menu of major attractions. When using our United States holiday planner to make an itinerary online, Cleveland holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Cleveland

Most of Cleveland's hotels are located in downtown, though you can also plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms in the city's outlying neighborhoods. Many downtown hotels offer discounted weekend rates and deals that include tickets to some of the city's major attractions, but if you prefer to stay away from the central part of town, consider the neighborhoods east of the Cuyahoga River. Staying in this part of Cleveland allows you easy access to the city's cultural district, renowned for its museums, galleries, and parks.
