Bialy's? If it's not boiled, it's not a bagel. I'm still waiting for some enterprising foodie to open a real bagel shop in this town.
Moved here from another, much bigger C-town 21 years ago--to marry a German girl whose family history here goes back to the Eighties...as in 1880s. I'll always hate the excessive snow, but except for live jazz and the Cubs, I don't miss a thing (oh, maybe winter sunshine).
Really, folks...which would YOU rather have in the wintertime...endless gray and 30 degrees, or sunshine and five above? No contest.

Spudnuts in Berea!
DJ Kishka and Dyngus Day. How about the Walleye Drop?
One other "must-see" is Parade the Circle the second Saturday of June each year. It is on Cleveland Museum of Art grounds and it is a world-class Rio de Janeiro-class parade. It is also a free event and great for children. Circle Village is open from 11 - 4. The parade starts at noon. The parade can last as long as 90 minutes.
Under "visit Lake Erie Cemetery", also note that in the summer they have a concert series right at Garfield's Monument that is incredible ~ every other week. A stop in Wade Chapel is a must and most people are not aware that they offer golf cart tours (free). Be sure to ask to be shown the "Shoe Tree", one of the best kept secrets at Lake View.
Adding Castle Noel in Medina when it's only been there since Nov 22 feels like a stretch. It's not like it is a true Cleveland landmark or tradition. Feel like some things are on the list just to make the 100 mark.
Geauga County fair is waaay better than the Cuyahoga fair.
Great list. Even greater is that we could easily make it 200.
78 down...22 to go. Except for the live jazz and the Cubs, I don't miss Chicago anymore. Honest.
My wife's family has been here since the Eighties...as in Eighteen-eighties. She sees to it that we never stay home between April and October. The rest of the year... slightly different story.
Last summer we attended 101 events between Memorial Day and Labor Day. If you are bored in Cleveland...it's your own damn fault.
We ain't kids, either...Early Boomers. Aging is not an excuse!

This might be the first time in history that the comment section didn't make me sad! LOL Very positive reviews from people :) Good list. I've done 55 ( a lot of them more than once)... can't wait to do the rest :)
Is this person a real Clevelander? The Cleveland Indians made the playoffs this year (9). Sure it was one game - the play in game - but it was still listed by MLB as the Postseason and the Playoffs.
Eat a sundae at Malley's on the west side!
How about, see a film at the Cleveland International Film Fest? Or better yet, volunteer at the Cleveland International Film Fest (they give you film vouchers, guys - those are as good as gold!)
Hot Dog Inn. Rockefeller Greenhouse. Cleveland City Hall. Public Hall, music Hall and little theater. Whips ledges. Tour the Plain Dealer printing Facility Fire boat.
Hey. thank you, Linda. That was really neat but I would still rather move to warm weather, Winning teams, but We would have to give up such GREAT NEIGHBORS--Lowell & Mary Ann
hahaha I am not even from Cleveland, I have lived here 4 years and half done already the majority on this list! But it is a great list, and I love the city so I will be making sure to hit the ones I missed! :)
We live in Kansas now, but have done about half on this list, planning to check off some more on our next visit home! Although, since there are a few things outside of Cleveland, I would definitely add Stan Hewitt Hall to the list!
EAT AT TOMMY'S!!!!
That should be número uno!!!
Attend a CityMusic Cleveland concert, always free.
