Welcome to Cleveland!   

Whether this is your first time or you have been here many times, we hope you will arrive before the Colloquium or stay a few extra days to take in some of the terrific attractions and great events around town.  From the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on the shore of Lake Erie to the vibrant neighborhood of University Circle, which is home to world class museums…there are a lot of opportunities to explore Cleveland!

A great starting point is Positively Cleveland, the website of our Convention and Visitors Bureau.  There you will find many links to events, attractions and lots of information about our city.  For those who want to explore outside the city, we have a National Park right in our backyard.  Historic Playhouse Square is the largest theatre district between New York and Chicago and offers the very best in regional theatre.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cleveland!  Start planning your visit using the Interactive Map or visit Lolly the Trolley to book a guided tour.  Either way you’ll have a great time while you are in town.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us for advice or any questions you have.  Enjoy your visit to Cleveland!
