No Mistake By the Lake
I bought a pin that says, "I liked Cleveland, before it was cool" and I did. J is from that area, we have visited many times. This trip we stayed downtown, something we had done a couple of times 10-12 years ago. I like urban centers, and like many Cleveland's had not done well from the 1970's through about 2000. In fact in the 1980's Cleveland was referred to as the mistake by the lake.
There has been an explosion in redevelopment and new construction, there are many fun restaurants and small shops. There is a nice casino. We took a boat tour, had lunch in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, wandered around and watched the street life of an alive city. It was fun. There will be several more postings, I took a ton of pictures.
Have you been to Cleveland?
