Public Square

In 1930, the Terminal Tower became the second-tallest building in the world and the centerpiece of Public Square -- the heart of downtown Cleveland. The tower still stands as a symbol of Cleveland, and the square below it remains one of the best people-watching spots downtown. During the holiday months, it becomes a glittering wonderland of twinkling lights and ice skaters. During the summer, the Cleveland Orchestra gives free shows on the square on holiday weekends. When the Indians went to the World Series, throngs of ardent fans crammed the square for rallies and parades. And even on regular days, you're apt to see someone preaching to anyone who will listen, couples cuddling on the benches, executives rushing into the adjacent Tower City Center mall for a quick lunch, and runners making one last lap around the town before heading back to work.

 Immigrant Son Brewing
18210 Sloane Ave., Lakewood 

If you land in the camp of critics who believe, without much empirical evidence, that Cleveland has too many breweries, know this: Immigrant Son is not your typical brewery (nor is it in Cleveland). Equal attention has been paid to the four main elements of the operation – beer, food, service and setting – so that even if you don’t happen to fancy a frosty pint of crisp, clean, straw-colored Kölsch, you needn’t sit there and squawk. Lakewood’s super popular first and only brewery is a full-on brewery and brewpub, with equal emphasis placed on both the food and beer.
