The Cheap Bastard's Guide to Summer in Cleveland

How to enjoy the long summer months when you're short on cash

The Cheap Bastard's Guide to Summer in Cleveland

We seem to have bypassed spring altogether in Cleveland this year, which is just damn fine by us. But now the question you face every summer: What are you going to do?

We're here to help, because we don't want you opening Instagram every morning, watching with regret as you see your friends enjoying all the great food, drink, festivals and events of Cleveland that you seemingly missed. Seriously, take out your phone, open your calendar, and bask in the hundreds of things we compiled to help stack your summer with fun from start to finish.

The best part? Not a single thing will cost you more than $30. In fact, almost half of what you'll find here is free. Zero dollars. Zero excuses.

Anyway, get that calendar ready. We'll see you around.
