Cleveland (US)

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the centerpiece of the North Coast Harbor skyline.

  Cleveland grabbed headlines in the 1970s as a financially strapped, rust-belt town with one of its waterways on fire. Today it boasts not only a very clean Cuyahoga River, but a stunning(令人震惊的), revitalized downtown area as well. The city is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum (a million facility designed by famed architect I.M. Pei) and the Great Lakes Science Center, which features an Omnimax theater.

  For a taste of culture, spend some time in University Circle, the nation's largest concentration of cultural institutions within one square mile. Here you'll find first-class museums like the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History , the Center for Contemporary Art, and the Western Reserve Historical Society (which also houses the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum)。 Noteworthy historic exhibits include Hale Farm and Village in the town of Bath, with authentic Western Reserve buildings dating back to the 1820s, and Dunham Tavern, once a stagecoach (美国旧时的驿马车,定期公共马车)stop on the Buffalo-Detroit road.

  The world-famous Cleveland Orchestra performs at Severance Hall in the winter and at Ohio's Music Festival at Blossom Music Center, where you can attend concerts, ballet, and popular music programs in a woodland setting in the summer. Playhouse Square, a complex of four restored 1920s movie palaces, is the second largest performing arts center in the country and houses the city's opera, ballet, and theater festival. It also hosts touring Broadway shows. Karamu House African American Theater is an international center for the performing arts.

The Cleveland Museum of Art

  For a magnificent view of downtown Cleveland and the Lake Erie shoreline, head to the top of Terminal Tower, which provides a bird's-eye view from over 700 feet up.

  Take a walk on the wild side with a visit to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and its Rain Forest, an indoor tropical ecosystem featuring more than 600 animals and thousands of plants, a 25-foot waterfall, and simulated(仿造的,人工的)rainstorms. Enjoy year-round outdoor activities in Cleveland's Metropark reservations, which span approximately 19,000 acres.

  There's no shortage of fun for kids in the Cleveland area. Visit the Children's Museum or take a tour of the NASA Lewis Research Center. Sea World of Ohio in Aurora, an 80-acre marine-life park, features live shows and new exhibits like Dolphin Cove, Eagle Point, and Shark Encounter. For thrill rides and amusements, visit Geauga Lake Park, or the larger Cedar Point in Sandusky.
