For a slightly different view of Cleveland’s attractions, head up.
Located on Public Square, 42 floors above street level, this Cleveland downtown landmark offers breathtaking views of the city. The Observation Deck is open Saturdays from 12 pm – 5 pm and Sundays from 12 pm – 4 pm. Walk-up general admission tickets are $5 at Tower City’s Guest Services Desk, located on level 1 near the Horseshoe Casino Entrance. Advanced tickets are available online prior to the tour date for $5 (plus a handling fee). Free admission is available for children 5 & under.
Located at the eastern edge of Cleveland, just beyond University Circle, on the Cleveland Heights border, Lake View has serenity, lovely landscaping, a chapel designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, and views of Lake Erie (and more) from the President James A. Garfield Monument that gave the cemetery its name. Open daily 9 am – 4 pm.
If you prefer your view with snacks and drinks, head to 2017 E. 9th to one of Cleveland’s newest hotels. The rooftop lounge of the Metropolitan at the 9 offers happy hour 150 feet above street level. Open Monday – Thursday 11 am – 12 am; Friday – Saturday 11 am – 2 am; Sunday 12 pm – 2 am
The sky’s the limit!
