Cleveland has the resilient, no-nonsense attitude of any hard-working, Upper Midwest city. It's rock and roll, football and beer, and polka and kielbasa. And although it hasn't blinked as some of the elements of its 1990s renaissance have faded a bit, the long-term trend is still toward improvement. While some efforts have failed, new restaurants and nightspots have joined old favorites to give the city an impressive variety of entertainment options and a cultural diversity that might come as a surprise to first-time visitors. Whatever the future holds, you can be sure that Cleveland will continue to change—for the better—defying expectations along the way.

Start the day with breakfast at Lucky’s Café. The location is fun, the food’s delicious and portions (try the Shipwreck) are enormous.
O.C. is one of the city’s hippest neighborhoods, offering hotels, shopping and restaurants a-plenty. It’s also a short walk to the Lakeside.
