Emerging Destinations: Cleveland

Emerging destinations offer a chance for enhanced educational experiences, including taking a look at science, technology, the arts, performance opportunities, and more!

Our last issue took a look at our fourth emerging destination from 2018—Nashville, Tennessee. In this issue, we’re venturing North to Cleveland, Ohio—our fifth and final emerging destination.


From culture and sports to music and nature, interesting experiences can be found around most every corner in Cleveland. A place many still think is just a stop on the interstate is home to some of the country’s most renowned cultural institutions, quirkiest museums, notorious sports teams and most-visited greenspaces. 

The world-renowned Cleveland Museum of Art brings classics to life with cutting-edge interactive technology, while the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame lets music lovers explore and celebrate the legacy of rock music through priceless artifacts and storytelling—along with chances for students to show off their own musical chops. The natural world comes alive at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, where students can walk through the SeaTube, a 230,000-gallon tunnel that stretches 175 feet and is home to sharks, stingrays, eels and saltwater fish.

A trip to Cleveland isn’t complete without some sightseeing from a whole new perspective aboard the Nautica Queen, Cleveland’s dining cruise ship. Students can cruise under historic bridges and take in sights of Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River while enjoying an unlimited buffet and musical entertainment—a perfect classroom bonding opportunity.

Ultimate thrills are available at Cedar Point in nearby Sandusky, where students can sneak in some extra learning alongside rollercoaster fun—not to mention taking part in some seriously cool performance opportunities. Don’t forget the rest the city has to offer: The Cleveland Orchestra, Great Lakes Science Center, Cleveland MetroParks Zoo & Rainforest, Cathedral of St. John, and more!

Be sure to take a look back at our other emerging destinations from the year, including Toronto and Memphis. Don’t forget to explore our number one emerging destination from 2018—New Orleans!

Let us start planning your next trip today.
