Unlike Cincinnati, Cleveland has many things to do if your planning for an extended stay. Day 1: Visit the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame located downtown Spend a good amount of time here, on some days bands around the whole country come here to perform everyday! People from Johnny Cash to Elvis have many guitars, records, photos, etc. Great museum to bring your own childhood back! Day 2: The Great Lakes Science Center This place has many neat things that you can do from being the weather man on a simulated screen to feeling like your on a roller coaster in the imax theatre. This is an all day event and your constantly at stations doing exciting and how did you do that things. Day 3: A trip on the Good Time 3 & A night at the ball park The Good Time 3 is a long casual boat ride that can last (depending on how much you pay) from 1-3 hours taking a tour through out the Cuyahoga River that runs through downtown and ends up touring the shore of Lake Erie Jacobs Field, home of the indians is a 12 year old ball park in very new shape where you can see an mlb game as low as 6-8 dollars per ticket at the bleachers. Day 4: Lolley the Trolley and The West Side Market Lolley the Trolley is a 2 hour trolley ride which gives you an incredible background of the city of Cleveland, history, local attractions, and a scenory ride of monuments and historical sites you see in and around downtown cleveland. The drivers are always friendly and have all your questions answered when you leave. The West Side Market is the only trading place in Cleveland where you can get all your freshed goods all lined up at merchant stalls, and the best food you can eat downtown from the venders. The old market dated back to 1912, is the best rated attraction in Cleveland with everything it has pleased customers with. Day 5: The Cleveland Zoo Anyone thinks a zoo is a zoo, but personally, i think the cleveland zoo is way different. Especially made for teens & kids, the rainforest in the Cleveland Zoo is A MUST SEE! Along with the Australian Outback in the zoo, the rainforest is a large indoor tropical paradise dome featuring many exotic animals along with kids favorites like porcipines, tigers, and their famous chimps. Last time i was there, i got to pet a parrot! The zoo itself is also great! Recommend the Australian Outback with the kids play area in it! Day 6: Geauga Lake Geauga Lake is an amusement park in which it shares some similarities and some differences to Cedar Point. First off, Geauga Lake has cheaper admission than Cedar Point does. Second, less people go there. Third, with a few less rides, fewer demon drop coasters, it has a better feel for a kid along with just as many if not more rides for kids in the park. Day 7: The Nautica Queen Relax for your final day at Cleveland and celebrate your vacation with a fabulous dinner on The Nautica! A cruise ship that goes through downtown on the river, and settles out for a journey on the coast of Lake Erie, The Nautica has excellent food, music, and fun! A must dinner if you want one of your meals to feel extravegent on vacation! 1 Event If Your Going In July! If your going in July, make sure you go see "Tall Ships" at harbor fest on the docs downtown at the Marina in Cleveland. Around 8-10 real looking dutchmen/pirate ships come into the harbor where you can board the ships, theres a kids park, one ship fires cannon balls, free prizes, and if you wait in an extremely long line, a ship takes you out to sea and back! Most fun for an event in Cleveland all year long! Hope this info was helpful!
I would pick St. Lucia. There is soooo much to do there. You can take a tour of the island with a taxi driver and see the worlds only drive in volcano. Then you can go to the waterfalls and mineral baths. If you are adventurous you can climb the Pitons which are the two mountains that St. Lucia is known for. You can also go horseback riding on the beach or go zip lining through a tropical forest. If you want to party there is the Friday nigh Jump Up in Gros Islet. This is a huge street party with music and dancing until early morning and it's free! There are also night clubs in the Rodney Bay are for night life activities. The beaches are great and you can relax there as well. A tip for you is that if you want to relax on a beach with no one around but still have some amenities close by go to Pigeon Island. You can hike to the top of the fort then have a nice lunch at the restaurant and rent some chairs on the beach right there on the property. Not a lot of people go there and rent chairs so you will probably have the beach all to yourself. This is a national park so there is a small entrance fee but it's a lot cheaper than renting chairs at Reduit beach. If you go to St. Lucia you must have lunch or early dinner (so that you can see the sunset) at Dasheen restaurant at the Ladera resort. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It sits right between the two Pitons and the view is incredible but you should really experience it during some day light because when it gets dark the view goes away. I hope you pick St. Lucia and enjoy! P.S. There's also great shopping in the markets in Castries as well as a mall at Rodney Bay.
Richie R took my answer, but I can add the Good Time 3! My grandparents used to take me on the GT2 when I was a child and it is a fun boat ride for all ages. I believe the GT3 is on Lake Erie, not in the river, I'm not sure. Also I think he left out University Circle: the Art Museum, Natural History Museum, the Botanical Gardens & the Childrens Musuem ~ there are a lot of kid friendly things to do there. But as far as things to see in Ohio that is not expensive, you could check out Amish Coutry, or the Indian Mounds. PA has Hersey factories, I know that is a place you can take the kids (unless their alergic to chocolate) I think the King Tut exhibit is at the Philly muesum of art this July. Its a little bit of a drive, but if you're willing to go to PA then why not check out Nigara Falls and Canada? Good luck and have fun.
Insensitive mother you have there, sorry that you had to go through that. In my case, NO my mother and I are not close at all. I only have 1 brother and he does not have a child yet. I have several sisters who have children and understand fully when it comes to favoritism. I'm usually left out. Mother and I don't have much of a relationship. I have 12 days until my due date and not once has my mother ask how my baby and I are doing. I don't expect any kind of help from her since I've never gotten them in the first place. It is just sad that she can be there for my siblings but not for myself. It's like I'm not her child at all, but yet she can still call me whenever she needs a ride. She expects me to be her Taxi Driver to help her with her errands which always involves my siblings children. For the past few months I've ignored her and said NO every time she calls for a ride because I don't find it fair that the only time I see or hear from her is when she needs me to do something for others. It's not my responsibilities no more of that bullshit.
LoL Brother Percival. Also it was Elisha who was bald, not Elijah. I'm sure. Great yarn though, people should be less judgemental and more accepting i believe. Fishing, as surely that is a good Christian event to take part in. Preparing the fish from water, pan and plate. So everyone appreciates the effort the fishermen of the gospel went through and such.
What a charming list, thank you so much for posting it. I have sons, so I have learned some strange things. Tuna cans set on top of firecrackers launch amazing distances. Always empty a child's pockets before doing laundry, because worms don't come through the dryer neatly. Broken bones are something to be proud of, but a hangnail will make one writhe in agony. It's possible to absorb nutritients through XBOX Live, thus eliminating the need for eating.
