Can you get all the way from airport area hotels to the area where RRHOF is now? I saw where it was discontinued until "spring of 2021." It definitely goes from those hotels (more or less) to the Westside Market, not sure about the Little Italy district.

Speaking of the Italy district, is it a madhouse when they have the arts fair weekend? Is parking a disaster?

Thanks

The Rapid will go from the airport to Tower City/Public Square (downtown). Currently, correct, you cannot transfer to the Waterfront line, which would take you basically right to the Hall of Fame. The easiest way is probably just to walk the 1 mile from Tower City.

As you already have noted, the red line goes to Ohio City as well (West Side Market).

The Red line also goes to Little Italy. If there is an event going on, I'd definitely suggest taking the Rapid. The Station is very well placed and you'll walk out right onto Mayfield Road. That will be way closer than anywhere you'd end up parking, although I find I can typically find spaces somewhere on Random Road or Murray Hill. But it might be kinda far away.

If you walk from Public Square to the RRHOF, go east on Euclid Ave. to East 4th St. Across the street from East 4th St. on the north side of Euclid Ave. is the entrance to the Arcade, one of Cleveland's great architectural gems and well worth a walk through.

While the Waterfront Line isn't running to the Rock Hall during the epidemic, you can get closer to the Rock Hall by taking the free B-line trolley from Public Square and getting off at East 9th St. and Lakeside Ave. When you exit Tower City on Public Square, go to your right to see the trolley stop (it also may stop in front of the casino to the left given the reduced trolley traffic). Tell the driver you want to get off as close as possible to the Rock Hall. You also can ride the full trolley loop to get a limited tour of downtown.

Routes | Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority

Only the B-line trolley route is operating during the epidemic.

Enjoy your trip to Cleveland.

BTW, most airport hotels offer a free shuttle to and from either the airport, which is the Red Line terminus, or the West 150th Red Line rapid station, which is closer to Public Square.

The directions to the trolley stop are backwards.

Should be: When you exit Tower City on Public Square, go to your LEFT to see the trolley stop (it also may stop in front of the casino to the RIGHT given the reduced trolley traffic).

When are you coming to Cleveland?

You may be able to get tickets to see the Indians at Progressive Field. Also, don't miss the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Buy RTA day passes.

You can take the Healthline bus rapid from downtown to University Circle and the Cleveland Museum of Art, providing a shorter walk than if you took the rapid. You easily can walk from the art museum to Little Italy, but there also are bus routes. Use Google transit to find them.

This travel article is dated and also doesn't reflect the impact of the epidemic, but it still may be helpful in planning your trip to Cleveland.



BOL!

To the OP: Please note that, at the current time due to COVID, there is limited admission to the Cleveland Museum of Art. You cannot just walk in; you have to book a reservation in advance, which can be done on their website:

I did see that and noticed it's free (except parking) which is really cool.

Speaking of museums and parking, if a person was going to RRHOF and the natural history museum next to it, which downtown hotel is the best to be within walking distance? Parking at some of the hotels is an arm and a leg which is unfortunate. Would it be better to stay near the airport and drive/park downtown and at other attractions (Italy district, etc)?

I wouldn't recommend staying near the airport. You won't feel like you're in the city at all.

Cleveland's natural history museum is near the Cleveland Museum of Art in University Circle. The Great Lakes Science Center is next to the Rock Hall. A key attraction there is the William C. Mather Steamship, a top ASME mechanical engineering landmark. Check to see if it will be open during your visit as it has been closed due to the epidemic.

https://www.asme.org/about-asme/engi...lliam-g-mather

Other attractions near the Rock Hall include the U.S.S. Cod, if open, one of the top attractions in Cleveland and the International Women's Air & Space Museum, if open. The U.S.S. Cod is considered the best preserved and most authentic U.S. WWII fleet submarine; access is provided only by ship ladders.

The Holiday Inn Express on Euclid Ave. often has low rates currently and gets good reviews. It doesn't have its own parking garage, so check out the parking situation ($27/night). It's in a great location, an easy walk to most of downtown and on the Healthline rapid bus line.

The Doubletree by Hilton on Lakeside is the closest hotel to the Rock Hall, but not as convenient for the rest of downtown or transit access. It does have its own parking garage.

Other hotels to check out IMO would include the Hampton Inn on East 9th St. and the Drury Plaza, a top-rated hotel with sometimes great rates.

Check out the Four Points by Sheraton on West 150th if you want to stay at an airport hotel for a lower rate. It offers free parking. Confirm that its airport shuttle offers free rides to and from the West 150th-Puritas Red Line station, only a 7-minute walk; check the hours of operation for the shuttle. Red Line trips to downtown and all points east will be shorter than from the airport.

Hotel rates may be higher if you're visiting during an Indians home stand.

Good luck!
