One of the most beautiful areas I've seen in many cities. Well worth the drive around. Little Italy is right there as well as all the museums. Shouldn't miss it on a trip to Cleveland.

This area is full of excellent restaurants, shops, & museums. Between the incredible Cleveland Museum of Art to eating at a wide variety of restaurants, it's THE place to visit when in Cleveland, especially if you're visiting Case Western Reserve University.

Yes, the Tudor Arms is a couple blocks away and there are a number of others. There are also restaurants, the best being in Little Italy. And the cafe in the Art Museum is wonderful for lunch.
