The Cleveland, OH Road Scholar program was very worthwhile. Cleveland is a clean, safe, growing and modern city. The program introduced us to safe, new Cleveland and how they have utilized the old buildings for new experiences. May's Dept. store is now a Community College. Higbee Dept. Store is now a Casino. The Terminal Tower is now the Tower Building full of small shops. Visiting the Cleveland Clinic showed the available and modern facility which employs 45,000 Clevelanders.

We have lived near and in Cleveland but that was 45 years ago. This trip was to a whole new city. Cleveland is full of quality things to do. Lynde Vespoli did an outstanding job of covering the highlights. The speakers and guides were exceptional. The art museum and Severance Hall were highlights.

My husband and I highly recommend this program. Our leader, Lynde Vespoli, was outstanding and so were all our speakers and guides. There is no way we could have seen and experienced the best that Cleveland has to offer by ourselves in such a short time. And there is so much -- a world-class art museum, Severance Hall, home of one of the best orchestras in the world, and the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, just to name a few of the highlights.
