Downtown Cleveland and FirstEnergy Stadium, where all the action will be happening this weekend, are only a quick 20-minute drive away from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

Weather:

It’s going to be a chilly one in Cleveland this weekend, with temperatures expected to reach 57 degrees at the highest. With forecasters predicting a 30 percent chance of rain, come prepared for afternoon showers on game day.

What to Eat & Drink:

For a variety of food options, head to West Side Market. The city’s oldest public market offers over 100 different vendors with diverse options including fresh seafood, meat, pastries and more.

An iconic Cleveland spot you don’t want to miss is Slyman’s Restaurant. Known as the home of the city’s best corned beef, it’s a perfect spot for a lunch break, but get there early because the line is usually out the door!

Craving an ice cold beer? Great Lakes Brewing Company is the place to go. All brews are made and distributed in Cleveland. Get some samples for an easy way to have a quick taste of the city. You can also set up a brewery tour to get a glimpse of how it’s all made.

Things to Do:

Right next door to the home of the Cleveland Browns is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a can’t miss attraction on a trip to the city! View exhibits about legends of rock like David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Springsteen while also looking at how rock has evolved over the years.

Also located in downtown Cleveland is The Arcade Cleveland, a landmark of the city founded in 1890. It’s the first indoor shopping mall in America, so be sure to check it out for some retail therapy and good eats.

If you’ve got a bit more time on your hands, take a journey through football history at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio – 50 miles south of Cleveland. Explore the biggest collection of professional football memorabilia and visit the busts of Chargers Hall of Famers including Dan Fouts, Junior Seau, LaDainian Tomlinson and more.

For something off the beaten path, check out the house that was used in the classic film “A Christmas Story.” The house has been turned into a museum and is filled with original props, costumes and behind-the-scenes photos from the movie.

Looking for a thrill while on vacation? Cedar Point Amusement Park is the place to be. Known as “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World,” there’s plenty of adrenaline-pumping rides to choose from, including the Top Thrill Dragster, which shoots you into the sky at 120 miles per hour. Though a bit far away from the city, it’s a must for families!
