On the road/bags packed/tickets in hand/check-check-check. Seeking a vacation. But Hmmmm. Maybe not. Let’s stay home. Stay in town. Get cozy. Fluff up your pillows, pour an extra cup of freshly-pressed coffee, and take it all in. Locally. And if you live in Cleveland, I’m sharing a few favorite ways to create a perfect stay-cation.
Sometimes just a break from your routine is the VERY thing that you need.
Be a Townie:
It’s bad manners to keep cutey little towns waiting for your visit. One of my favorite ways to spend a day in Cleveland is walking around Chagrin Falls, Ohio. From the Popcorn Shop to the boutiques to art galleries… many opportunities to maximize the day. Grab an ice-cream cone (#obvi: calories don’t count on a staycation), find your inner zen at the falls and stay for a dinner in town. Or – right around the corner is Gates Mills – perfect for walks along old bridges and being in the mix of gorgeous woodsy views along the Chagrin River!
Culture, art. Ok… Choose from the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Botanical Gardens, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Great Lakes Science Center … places to enhance your cultural views of the world. #Flutterbye: Can’t beat the butterflies flying freely around at the Botanical Gardens. Oh, <swoon> – the art museum’s atrium is beyond.
Straight Outta Cleveland:
Every-day-is-a-chance-to-explore. Believe it – especially in #Believeland, Ohio. #LetsGoCAVS! Oodles of events in the C-L-E, but a definite MUST is the CLE Flea. Once a month, local artisans, chefs, food trucks, vendors, talented folks and more gather. It’s THE place to see and be seen. #Obsessed
And if you can get a High-5 from the legendary Chef Jonathon Sawyer (Greenhouse Tavern, Trentina, and like a million other things…), well… that just tops it all off! #ThisIsCLE
Yes, shopping is my cardio, but I also like to mix it up once in a while. Bowling at the Corner Alley on East 4th Street is da bomb dot com! And look – pink bowling balls. I mean… they get me. #MatchesMyLillyPulitzer
Hand Me a Fork:
Nothing brings people together like good food! Cleveland is a FOODIE town. Chef Sawyer, Chef Symon, Chef Katz – just to name a fab few. Cleveland will always deliver something delicious to dine on!
Or… stay in Cleveland (but venture to the border of Shaker Heights) to dine at Fire Food and Drink. Fire = first choice place for brunch (note: homemade cinnamon rolls. #HeavenOnEarth)
