Beautiful area in stark contrast to the run-down areas of Cleveland near Case Western. Look for the area of Little Italy up the hill after driving through the Case Western campus.

The Circle is surrounded by Cleveland's important cultural institutions, but not a nice place to walk as distances are great and there is a lot of traffic. Recent gentrification has added some restaurants and cafes.

So much to do in University Circle. From walking around to all the stores, you will never be bored. Definitely visit.

A place where Cleveland's Citizens gather to celebrate, and attend events, concerts. A wonderful place to visit spring, summer and fall.

This is truly one of the most unique and culturally rich places in the country. I grew up in the area and went there repeatedly. The Cleveland Museum of Art is world class, as is the Ballet, Botanical Gardens... I could go on and on!

Really nice place to take a walk after a concert at Severance Hall or just a walk on its own. There is a pond in the center and many buildings for Case Western Reserve, CIM, and CIA. The art gallery is also nearby.

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.
