Cleveland – Things to do with your Team

Cleveland is the second largest city in Ohio after Columbus. Situated on the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie, it’s a busy, bustling place with a lot going on.

If you’re heading to Cleveland with the team, take some time to explore, bond, and have a little fun. Here are some awesome things to do while your team is in Cleveland.


North Coast Harbor District

The North Coast Harbor District in Cleveland sits on the shore of Lake Erie and offers a whole bunch of fun activities for the team.

The Great Lakes Science Center and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame make a perfect double-header for an afternoon of exploration.

The Great Lakes Science Center is a super cool, interactive space where you can play with electricity and tornadoes and experience life aboard the International Space Station. Get up close and personal with the gigantic, 150-foot turbine on the front lawn, which provides about seven percent of the center’s annual electricity.
