ON OUR COVER: Goodtime III Cruise Ship 825 East Ninth Street Pier North Coast Harbor, Cleveland 44114 City Visitor 3

After almost half a century serving the travel and tourism market across multiple states, this will be the final edition of City Visitor Communications. As the founder of City Visitor publications, it has always been my top priority to deliver the most credible dining and shopping guide that introduced visitors and tourists to the best our community had to offer. At the age of 27, I identified the need for visitors to have a quality guide to the area and I setout to help business owners, restaurant owners and tourist attractions reach the over “million” visitors that come to our area each year. The City Visitor team worked tirelessly to provide trustworthy information, quality images and graphics to highlight our town. I am grateful for the team who shared my vision and who served our customers with such dedication over 42 years. City Visitor Communications went on to seed nine additional businesses in travel and relocation, including a public offering in 1997. As with every journey, I faced challenges over the 42-years, but nothing compares to the joy I feel knowing that we did our best, every day, to serve our customers and readers. I feel joy knowing that this journey positively impacted so many people, businesses, and our communities. Here is to the journey ahead.

CRUCIAL CLEVELAND Popular with visitors and locals alike, the Cleveland script signs provide six unique views of the city. Before the Republican National Convention in 2016, three Cleveland script signs were installed in different places so the influx of visitors could capture images to remember their time here. Since those first installments, three more signs have been added, including one inside the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Each of the five outdoor locations offers an impressive skyline backdrop.
1 At the E. 9th Street Pier and behind the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of the most popular Cleveland script signs. Stop for a photo after a trip to the Rock Hall! North Coast Harbor, 1001 E. 9th Street
Be sure to tag #cityvisitor when posting photos of the Cleveland Signs!

The Cleveland Institute of Art / ©Robert Muller

MOCA Cleveland / Photo: Erik Drost
A three-minute walk heading west on Euclid brings you to Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA Cleveland), which is also admission-free. The museum has presented the works of more
than 2,000 artists, including Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Roy Lichenstein. But you don’t have to go inside before being impressed. The building, a trapezoidal structure sheathed in reflective black stainless steel, is mesmerizing in itself. Even more impressive is the giant hand sculpture, standing over 20 feet high, on the plaza next to the museum. (11400 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland 44106; 216.421.8671)
3 Continue heading west on Euclid to the majestic Severance Hall. This marks the first stop on the University Circle portion of the tour. This architectural gem isn’t a museum, but it is one of the nation’s premier concert halls and the home of the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra. The main lobby and auditorium are closed except during performances, but the giant stone steps in front are the perfect place for a selfie and a lovely view of Wade Oval Lagoon. (11001 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland 44106; 216.231.1111) Severance Hall / Photo: Larry E. Highbaugh Jr.
4 Gaze across the lagoon you’ll spot your next stop, the magnificent Cleveland Museum of Art. A short walk along East Boulevard leads you to Wade Oval Drive and this nationally acclaimed institution. The museum is admission-free, and its 30,000-piece collection includes original paintings by Rembrandt, Renoir, Picasso, Dali, Warhol and many more. (11150 East Boulevard, Cleveland 44106; 216.421.7350) CV Inside, the light-filled atrium and the Provenance Tip Café offer a great place to refresh and recharge.
The Cleveland Museum of Art's original entrance (from 1916) faces Wade Oval and the lagoon.
Leaving the front entrance of CMA, continue left around Wade Oval until you see “Steggie,” the giant stegosaurus sculpture that lets you know you’ve reached the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Massive dinosaur skeletons, a hall of sparkling gemstones, an earthquake machine and “Lucy,” the famous 3.2-million-year-old human ancestor fossil, are among the biggest draws. There’s also the Ralph Perkins II Wildlife Center and Woods Garden, where rescued and rehabilitated coyotes, river otters, bald eagles, a porcupine and dozens of other native Ohio animals can be viewed. (1 Wade Oval, Cleveland 44106; 216.231.4600) Continued on next page City Visitor 9
Rides on the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel are included with each admission.
A short walk along Wade Oval Drive to the left takes you to the corner of East Boulevard and E. 108th, where a 105-yearold carousel is visible inside a glasswalled building. This joyful relic of simpler times welcomes you to the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society, a museum filled with fun and unusual artifacts telling the story of Cleveland’s past. The museum houses everything from the gondola of the “Spirit of Goodyear” blimp to LeBron James’s size-15 sneakers. It’s also the site of the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum, a vast collection of classic cars, carriages, motorcycles and racing planes. (10825 East Boulevard, Cleveland 44106; 216.721.5722)
Finally, head back to Wade Oval and cross the lawn to the ever-changing urban escape known as the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Here you’ll discover exquisite, awardwinning outdoor gardens and an exotic greenhouse with two distinct biomes: a Madagascan desert and a Costa Rican rainforest. It’s a delight for the senses and a relaxing end to your urban journey.

visit larchmere.com for more information The Larchmere district, a federally designated historic district, begins at East 120th Street and extends east to North Moreland Boulevard. About six miles from downtown Cleveland, you will find 10 blocks of shops, galleries, antique stores, service enterprises, restaurants and public art such as colorful bike racks reminiscent of classic wooden chair styles (think Queen Anne, Shaker and Bentwood) and playful murals on the sides of otherwise ordinary brick buildings. This urban oasis is found along the boulevard known as Larchmere, home to 30 eclectic businesses and popular community events, making it one of the area’s most entertaining destinations. Check out Loganberry Books, an independently owned and operated bookstore with a huge selection including a little bit of everything. Visitors will find leather bound and decorative bindings, mostly from 1880-1920, though some are even older. High ceilings, natural light and warm rugs provide an air of comfort and coziness throughout this home to about 100,000 volumes. Extensive sections devoted to children’s literature and modern literature, art, design, the performing arts, the sciences, history and a wonderful array of knickknacks. While many patrons simply love to stroll the stacks at Loganberry, the shop offers much more than a typical bookstore. There are book signings and other author events; discussion groups and book clubs; and open mics and music events. And don’t miss the Loganberry Books Annex Gallery, which features a monthly rotation of local artists and their work, including painting, photography, ceramics, collage and beyond. 24 City Visitor

Plans for the greenhouse first began in 1902, and in 1905, the first units of the greenhouse were built on land donated by John D. Rockefeller. In the beginning, the city only used the greenhouse for the purpose of growing plants that would be used for landscaping parks and gardens within the city. Now, Rockefeller Park Greenhouse is also an attraction for visitors, including specialty plant collections, theme gardens and seasonal flower displays, like chrysanthemums in the fall or poinsettias for the holidays.
