CLEVELAND–People everywhere you look, as Cleveland sports make for a busy weekend downtown.

The Cleveland Indians won two games against the Detroit Tigers and the Cleveland Browns are preparing for Sunday’s 2016 home opener against the Baltimore Ravens.

“The city is vibrant again and more people are coming to visit,” one fan said.

More people downtown means more planning to get to your destination.

“Having the multiple crowds is awesome. I love it,” said Joseph Arkesteyn, an Indians fan.

But parking can be pricey, depending on where you want to walk, and you can’t forget about wait times.

“With this day in age of safety and security, I get it,” Arkesteyn said. “It’s cool I mean I want to be safe, I don’t want to have to fear the worst.”

The Cleveland Browns have implemented walk-through metal detectors at FirstEnergy Stadium’s entrances in place of metal-detecting wands to hopefully speed up the process.

One more thing, don’t forget about the NFL’s bag policy. It only allows fans to bring in a clear plastic bag or a clutch into the stadium.
