Top 5 Things To Do In Cleveland


1. Happy Dog

Looking for some live music entertainment, but also some good food and drinks? Check out Happy Dog! 

Happy Dog is your neighborhood corner bar known for being one of the most welcoming music venues in the city located in the Detroit Shoreway. Their shows range from rock to country to classical music. No matter your music taste, you are sure to find a show at Happy Dog you will enjoy. Their success was growing, so in 2009 they decided to add something new to their venue. Chef Eric Williams was brought on and he changed their menu to just the basics: hot dogs, veggie dogs, tater tots, and French fries. But these aren't just any regular hot dogs, these are loaded with any topping you can think of! 

Their menu has 50 topping options, including Cheetos, fried egg, white beer cheese fondue, and more! They also have multiple vegetarian or vegan options available. 

Check out their event schedule today on their website or even book your own private party! If you enjoy your time with them, be sure to leave them a great review on Google or Yelp!

The Greater Cleveland Aquarium has been a city favorite for decades and is highly recommended by all. 

Inside you will find almost 3,000 animals swimming around throughout the facility. Highly educational and extremely entertaining. Help feed the stingrays and walk alongside the massive 175 sea tube where barracudas and beautifully colored deep-sea fish swim beside you. The giant Pacific Octopus is a big hit that you can't miss out on. And of course, they have sharks!

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is quite massive and almost seemingly endless to some. Enter the realm of wildlife as you are greeted by the African Elephants near the welcome gates. From there you can choose your own path onward to the Australian Adventure or see more of the African Savanna. Beyond these sections holds more animal zones such as the primates, big cats, aquatics, and a wilderness trek where you can view wolves, bears, and more. 

The zoo also has a large rainforest with an indoor cafe and many more unique species to see. Here you will find reptiles, amphibians, birds of all kinds, and even a secondary primate exhibit. Tours and educational programs are happening daily at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo; however, visitors are free to roam the land as they wish.
