 Greetings From Cleveland Mural
2104 W. 25th St.
Postcards are so last decade. Take a picture with this larger-than-life mural and text it to your family or friends who aren't lucky enough to live in Cleveland to let them know they’re on your mind (and that you’re in the superior location).

The huge outdoor chandelier illuminating Playhouse Square is the biggest in the world and a beautiful backdrop for a selfie. Its iconic location lets people know that you actually are cultured, despite whatever they may believe.

 Museum of Contemporary Art
11400 Euclid Ave.
This museum is known for having some awesome exhibitions, all of which are selfie-worthy. But one thing that doesn’t change is the reflective exterior of its building, perfect for a loophole mirror selfie.

 Squire’s Castle
North Chagrin Reservation, Willoughby Hills
Castles aren’t that common in Cleveland, so we’re excited to have one. People take everything from prom photos to wedding photos, so why not take a selfie in front of this beautiful, historic building?

 West Side Market 
1979 W. 25th St.
This is Cleveland’s oldest indoor/outdoor market still in operation. It can get overwhelming every now and then, so the best place to escape all that craziness is the balcony, which is also the best place to take a selfie.

 Fort Hill Stairs
Rocky River Reservation, North Olmsted
Boast that you just climbed all 155 steps (or at least make everyone think you did). These steps are the perfect lengthy background for any selfie-taker looking to brag about exercise.
