When you think of Cleveland, Ohio, do Superman, rock 'n' roll and awesome architecture spring to mind? They should. Superman was created here, soaring above stunning Art Deco high-rises. One wonders what the comic book hero would make of the city's newest buildings and skyscrapers, several designed by superstar architects I.M. Pei and Frank Gehry. As to rock 'n' roll, local DJ Alan Freed coined the term. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame dedicated to this rocking music genre is an I. M. Pei design.
It's said Cleveland, on the southeast shore of Lake Erie, was the country's first city to have an indoor shopping mall. Now known simply as The Arcade, it's well worth a visit for its Victorian look as well as its collection of shops.
You might be more familiar with the city's Standard Oil connection. John D. Rockefeller, one of many millionaires living here in elaborate mansions in early days, was instrumental in founding his oil company in Cleveland. Rockefeller was lured by the accessibility of ship and rail transportation to bring in crude oil and send out the refined product. To his credit, he donated a large tract of land to the city, now Rockefeller Park. This lovely green park is known for its cultural gardens which pay tribute to poets and philosophers from around the world.
Whatever your preconceptions of Cleveland, you're bound to be surprised -- in a good way. A number of Great Lakes cruisers say it's their favorite port.
