Your itinerary for the best way to see Cleveland in a day starts at the West Side Market. Grab a cup of coffee, a fresh pastry and some fruit to start your day off. From there, you can either head down to the zoo with the kids, or head further west for shopping at Crocker Park. Once you’ve had your fill of either, stop by Edgewater Park on the near West Side — grab a picnic of sandwiches to go at nearby Slyman’s. Next, take a leisurely stroll through the Cleveland Museum of Art, where you can see some of the greatest masters the world has seen.
For dinner, make a reservation at Lola's, chef Michael Symon's downtown eatery. Depending on when you visit, you can see a show at Playhouse Square, or, if you're feeling sporty, one of the three professional sports teams should be playing. To finish off your night, head to the Warehouse District if you're in the mood for the club scene. If not, visit the Tremont or Lakewood for a more down-to-earth vibe.
