The Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art, 11400 Euclid Ave., Cleveland
The MOCA was opened in 1968, but the world-famous museum underwent massive renovations in 2012, making a wonderful museum even better. The building itself, straight out of a sci-fi film, was designed by the famous architect Farshid Moussavi. The museum has featured art from the likes of Andy Warhol and other great contemporary artists, but it always maintains a focus on showcasing Greater Cleveland artists. The MOCA is worth visiting more than once, as exhibits come and go.
Squire's Castle, River Rd., Willoughby Hills
Squire's Castle is exactly what it sounds like--a squire's castle, carefully maintained for visitors. The old building is cool, but the real attraction is the long expanse of beautiful green grass at the site, perfect for friendly games of frisbee and football. There are also hiking trails behind the Castle, allowing nature-lovers to wander about forested streams. Squire's Castle, and the surrounding Metroparks, are some of the most beautiful locations in all of Cleveland.
Wade Oval, 10820 East Blvd., Cleveland
Wade Oval is home to some of the most fun activities in Cleveland. During the winter, Wade Oval Rink is open, offering a great ice-skating experience. During the summer, Wade Oval WOW! Wednesdays take place (you guessed it) every Wednesday night. Each week is a different event, ranging from outdoor screenings of E.T. to reggae festivals. And all year-round, Wade Oval Park offers seven beautiful acres to wander or walk your dog.
