Let the ideas and activities on this list take your enjoyment of Cleveland to new, ahem, highs. And don't forget to save a hit for us.
A project that was first announced in 2019 finally reached the finish line in March. Pins Mechanical Co. and 16-Bit Bar + Arcade, which opened in Ohio City, was previously home to Daniels Furniture. The sprawling entertainment complex spans 27,000 square feet spread across two floors. While the all-ages social destination is one cohesive attraction, it is comprised of two separate venues. Cleveland gamers likely will be familiar with 16-Bit, the classic arcade game emporium that for six years lured nerds to Lakewood. Joining that concept is Pins Mechanical, Rise’s duckpin bowling brand. It’s like a playground for high people.
A tour of an ice cream plant and eating ice cream while high? Awesome. In 2014, Mitchell’s opened their flagship store on West 25th in Ohio City and they also offer tours of their production facility! These are tasting tours, so be prepared to try some delicious ice cream.

We really have a great selection of local bookstores all over Northeast Ohio and everything will sound that much better when high. Visible Voice in Tremont, Appletree Books and Mac’s Backs in Cleveland Heights, Horizontal Books and Zubal Books in Ohio City, Loganberry Books in Shaker Heights, Learned Owl in Hudson, Fireside Books in Chagrin Falls and the Bookshop in Lakewood are all worthy of a trip.
The Emerald Necklace is one of Northeast Ohio's most treasured assets and the envy of tons of other big cities. There's something for everyone. Walk, hike, bike, rollerblade, skip, jump, bird watch, sleep, picnic, lounge, golf — whatever. It's nature, and it's magnificent. Just don’t do anything too crazy when you’re high.
There’s nothing better than watching a movie when you’re stoned, and it’s even more far out when you see your own city in a film. We all know about the Avengers, A Christmas Story and of course Draft Day. But did you know over 50 movies have been filmed in Northeast Ohio? Some of our favorites include American Splendor, The Kings of Summer, The Land and Take Shelter but there are a ton of good ones.
Yeah, regular bowling is fun, but why not try something new. Duckpin Bowling gives you three turns per frame, on shorter lanes, with smaller balls. So if you’re not so good at the real thing, this place is perfect to not embarrass yourself, unless you’re really, really high.
Wanna do a joint and something fun? Check out the Cleveland Institute of Art's Cinematheque is known for plenty. It shows dozens of foreign language and art films a season. If it’s Thursday through Sunday, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a wonderful movie that you might not normally see and something that’ll blow your stoned mind.

Rockefeller, Eliot Ness, Revolutionary War soldiers, Ray Chapman and more famous and influential people than we have time to name, Lake View Cemetery is also, of course, home to the President Garfield memorial. The view from the second floor balcony is one of the most majestic and underrated in the whole city.
