Cleveland, OH

Twilight and sunset pictures of downtown Cleveland and Lake Erie

Cleveland is a vast midwestern city that sits right on the southern shore of Lake Erie. The lake brings a lot of commerce and recreation, but it also brings a lot of snow in the winter. 

Taking the good with the bad, the winter months have their own allure in Cleveland, especially to college students who still like to go out and see some live music (Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) or have a couple of beers cheering for one of their professional sports teams.

Cleveland is a very proud city, and this doesn’t just mean in their sports teams (of which, they are very proud… and the stadiums are right by the lake which makes for a lot of fun for many people). There is a booming music scene with venues for every genre and several outdoor festivals in the summer. 

Rock and roll is very centric in Cleveland, and the city has a rough-around-the-edges but still enjoyable vibe.
