Cleveland is a city in the U.S. state of Ohio and is the county seat of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state.

The city is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles (97 km) west of the Pennsylvania border. It was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, and became a manufacturing center owing to its location on the lake shore, as well as being connected to numerous canals and railroad lines. Cleveland’s economy has diversified sectors that include manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, and biomedical.*

You’ve heard the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is here, but there’s so much more. Cleveland is home to PlayhouseSquare, the second largest performing arts center in the nation; University Circle, a concentrated square mile of arts and culture; a Great Lake at our doorstep; an emerald necklace of parks surrounding the city; several major sports teams; more than 100 public golf courses; a zoo and rain forest that’s home to more than 3,000 animals; Cedarpoint, an amusement park that is consistently voted the best in the world; and tons of colorful festivals. Set sail on the lake or cruise the river for panoramic views of Cleveland and sunsets over Lake Erie with Holiday Charters and Wildwood Marina or on the Goodtime III, Majestic or the Nautica Queen.
