This year’s Republican National Convention is taking place in Cleveland, Ohio. While few things are as interesting as watching Donald Trump, people can still enjoy the city if they can’t get inside the convention.



Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument

Originally opened in 1894, this 125-foot Quincy granite tower honors Cuyahoga County’s soldiers who fought in the Civil War, along with the four branches of the Union Army: the Navy, Cavalry, Infantry and Artillery.



Playhouse Square

Surprisingly, one of the best theater scenes outside of Broadway is in Ohio. The Playhouse Square Center operates several venues in the Cleveland Theater District, most of which were built in the early 1920s.



Cleveland Museum of Art

Now celebrating its centennial year, the Cleveland Museum of Art stayed true to the vision of its founders by keeping its collection of 45,000 artifacts free to the public.



Lake View Cemetery

Known as “Cleveland’s outdoor museum,” Lake View Cemetery is the resting place for notable Midwesterners like former President James A. Garfield, billionaire oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller and radio jockey Alan Freed.

Claese Oldenburg’s giant rubber stamp sculpture was moved to Willard Park in 1991. It was originally across from the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument, hence the word “FREE” on its bottom side.



USS Cod Submarine Memorial

Now permanently moored as a museum ship, the USS Cod was originally launched in 1943, serving on seven patrols in World War II’s Pacific Theater.
