Exactly what days will you be in northern Ohio? The Cleveland Indians only play Monday, 9/2, on Labor Day weekend. Is that the game you're going to attend?
Are you flying into Cleveland Hopkins? The Red Line rail rapid runs from Cleveland Hopkins (the station is next to luggage pick-up) to Tower City downtown.
What kind of food do you like? Are you carnivore, vegetarian, or vegan?
Do you like art museums, history, partying, culture, a botanical garden or an arboretum, zoos, biking, beaches, music (what genres?), performing arts, roller coasters, islands, hiking, ice cream, adventure, shopping, or any other special interests?
The top tourist attractions in northern Ohio, in no particular order, would include Cedar Point, the roller coaster capital of the world; Ohio Amish Country, the largest Amish community in the world; the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; Cleveland's professional sports teams; the Cleveland Museum of Art, one of the best in the U.S.; PlayhouseSquare, the nation's second largest unified theater district with some of the nation's best performance spaces; and the Cleveland Orchestra, one of the world's best with two of nation's best performance spaces -- Severance Hall and Blossom Music Center.
You'll definitely want a rental car for Ohio Amish Country or Cedar Point.
Have you ever been to Niagara Falls, four hours northeast of Cleveland?
Here's is the Cleveland events calendar from Aug. 31 on:
Actually, the above calendar seems deficient. E.g., Blossom Music Festival is omitted.
It's actually slow this year because traditionally it's dominated by the Cleveland National Air Show, which was canceled for this year because military acts/exhibits were canceled due to the federal budget sequester.
