Just like the song says, "Cleveland Rocks," and this city on the banks of Lake Erie in northern Ohio can rightfully back up that claim. Home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, it's also known as a die-hard sports town and the American home of the pirogi and other Polish delights. Throw in a few museums, an aquarium, and a zoo, and you've got one of the more exciting cities in the Great Lakes region.
Located in the Brooklyn Centre neighborhood along Big Creek is the 180-acre-plus Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. You'll find animals from all over the world while exploring exhibits such as The RainForest, Waterfowl Lake, the African Savanna, and Australian Adventue. You can also take a charming train ride in Wallaby Walkabout. There are always special events happening at the zoo, including overnight stays, preschool safaris, and holiday-themed happenings.
When planning your Cleveland vacation, don't forget that you can book many hotels in Cleveland through Travelocity. There are many cheap hotels near Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, all very close to other Cleveland destinations. Just eight miles north of the zoo is the I.M. Pei-designed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, where many examples of rock royalty's memorabilia are housed.
After all the wild animals and rock and roll, head to the Ohio City neighborhood to visit the 100-year-old West Side Market. Easily accessed by any of the hotels near Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, this historic market features vendors selling many types of ethnic delicacies, as well as fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables, and everything in between.
Cleveland is not a huge city, so the zoo and the hotels by Cleveland Metroparks Zoo are all within striking distance of this charming Midwestern city's major attractions. Travelocity has Cleveland vacations down pat to make sure your visit to "The Forest City" is a memorable one, and remember: you can save up to $537 when you book a hotel and flight at the same time.
