Well you have Case Western University nearby along with Little Italy, there is the Cleveland Museum of Art which has a nice armor exhibit. There are many, many bars to frequent as well. Cleveland rocks!

I lived there for three years. It's not the most exciting place, but there are some highlights. You could take in a game at the Jake, it's a beautiful stadium. Then there's cool bars like the Winking Lizard tavern (still the best wings I've had outside of Quaker State, which is also in Pepper Pike, a suburb). There are some cool soul food restaurants. There's Coventry street, which has some alternative shops and food. There's also the Odeon, which gets some prime acts and is a great club for music.

I spent 3 weeks this summer in Cleveland with my sister, who was in the Cleveland Clinic and had open heart surgery. I got out to Beachwood Mall and Legacy Village once, and that was very, very nice. Otherwise, I'm quite familiar with the Cleveland Clinic and the Guest House and the Rite Aid next to the Guest House.

Precisely. There's a nice stretch of area around downtown, but other than that, woof. Cleveland has to be one of the duller, more depressing big cities in the country.

I found a few nice restaurants in Lakeshore, and as others have mentioned, in Little Italy. Other than the Rock hall and the Museum, I couldn't find anything else to do. Did have some pretty good pizza though, from this place www.angelosonline.com/

Like Dave Attell said about Columbus "You know what's a fun thing to do there? Pack up and get the hell out", you can apply the same thing to any city in Ohio...

I drove all the way out Euclid to get back to the Highway from Little Italy when I was up there last Wednesday for a New Bomb Turks show at the Rock Hall, and it was endless fucking ghetto. I had three separate cars full of 'urban youths' yell shit at me, which is more than I've had happen in years here in Pittsburgh's uh, ghetto areas, and I drive through them every day. One actually yelled at me "nice car, give me money white motherfucker"...which is funny, because I'm unemployed right now.

What's up with that 10 Best site? I went there, because I honestly couldn't believe that Kinko's was listed. Have they never heard of the West Side Market? It appears to have a different list everytime you refresh. I've never even heard of some of the places listed- and a freakin USPS was #1 at one point???

Sure, don't blame on Clevelanders.

It's their responsiblitiy to get tourists to visit their city. It's their responsiblity to promote all of their landmarks or attractions, etc... And don't blame on tourists!
