2 hour city exploration using listening devices in afternoon
Enjoy the hotel's full breakfast buffet including coffee, tea, and water, served daily on the first floor.
This morning, we'll start the day with a lecture on Cleveland's history. A major industrial and commercial center on Lake Erie, Cleveland was one of the chief ports on the Great Lakes. Study the early days as Cleveland was a center for steel manufacturing through its current transformation to a service-based economy capitalizing on its museums, cultural attractions and hospital and medical research facilities to regain its stature as a major American city. Discover how the Erie Canal and late 19th century industrialists changed the face of the city. Consider how immigrant groups and political conflict shaped the city’s development.
We'll enjoy lunch at Heinen's Grocery Store, Cleveland's oldest family-owned grocer. Choose from an array of "grab and go" foods and/or salad bar. Bottled non-alcoholic beverages included.
After lunch and our two-hour city exploration, we'll venture to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to explore at our own pace. The Hall opened in 1995, after winning the national lottery over New York, Chicago and Memphis. The Hall has the vision of engaging, teaching and inspiring through the power of rock and roll. The Hall holds archives, and hosts onstage concerts featuring local artists and events for the public.
