CLEVELAND– Tuesday is National Plan for Vacation Day!

While you may be dreaming of a tropical beach, the folks at Destination Cleveland want you to consider a long weekend staycation in CLE.

Not only are there great ideas for the summer, but plenty for “Be a Tourist in Your Hometown” weekend, which runs March 20 to March 24.

Re-discover downtown:

Drinks on East 4th Street following by a game at Quicken Loans Arena or Progressive Field, or a show on Playhouse Square. Use one of Destination Cleveland’s maps to help guide you around the new developments and public art.
