Travel to or staycation in Cleveland

This article has statistics that indicate I was right about the economy hurting the travel industry:

A Gallup poll in early May found that 36 percent of Americans were changing vacation plans because of gas prices. More than a third of those said they are canceling trips completely. A Rand-McNally survey found that two-thirds of households plan to shorten or cancel travel plans.

Later in the article they talk about tips for a good staycation – things like turning off your phone and not doing the chores. Then they give some advice for things to do in northeast Ohio (it’s a Cleveland paper). A staycation means you sleep in your own bed, but you are allowed to leave the house (to eat out or to see local attractions for instance).

This article focuses on Cleveland, so for those of you who are staycationing there or who might travel there, read on. Basically the recommend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (I’d like to see that myself), Cleveland’s Western Reserve Historical Society (special Vatican exhibit), the House of Blues for food and music (though you don’t need to travel to Cleveland for that since it’s a chain), and Maggiano’s Little Italy for dinner (another chain).

    Anthony Bourdain did an episode about Cleveland for on his show No Reservations. It was much more interesting than I would have imagined. I would visit just to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and eat at Hot Sauce Williams!

    I am from Cleveland and only years after leaving did my family and I come back to visit the R&R HOF. I was pretty disappointed. There are a lot of great things to do in/around Cleveland (from Jun-Sep) but the R&R HOF is not one of them. If you are looking for a great time in NE Ohio, look at the state parks, i.e. Mohican, Salt Fork, Nelson Ledges, etc…great lodges, hiking, camping and canoeing.

    What’s Hot Sauce Williams? A chili restaurant?
