Tour Route and Length
Our Downtown Highlights and the Cleveland From the Inside walking tours begin at Public Square and end at Playhouse Square. Routes may vary due to events going on downtown. Some stops on the tour offer the opportunity for participants to sit. Tours are rain or shine.
The Downtown Highlights walking tour is approximately 2 hours in length. The Cleveland From the Inside walking tour is 2.5 - 3 hours in length with a small break period.
Both the Downtown Highlights and Cleveland From the Inside walking tours meet in Public Square in front of the statue of Mayor Tom Johnson. The statue is located on the north side (closest to the lake) of the square, in the middle. It is across the street from Old Stone Church and the Society for Savings Building.
There are multiple garages and surface lots in downtown Cleveland as well as some street parking. Each varies in price depending on the weekday, time of day and events going on downtown. Best Parking is a great website to use to compare parking prices for garages and surface lots. For all tours we recommend parking around Public Square.
Returning to the Starting Point
Of course you can always walk back up Euclid Ave to return to Public Square from Playhouse Square. It is about a 10 – 15 minute walk depending on your pace. But if you are tired, hop on the city’s free E-Line Trolley (Monday - Friday) along Euclid Ave and ride it back to Public Square. On the weekends the C-Line Trolley will take you back to Public Square although it is not as direct.
What to Wear
The wearing of a face mask is strongly encouraged during the COVID-19 crisis. Some buildings we enter may require this; thus if you do not have a face mask, you will not be able to enter that building and will need to wait outside while the rest of the group tours that building.
On your tour of Cleveland the most important thing to remember is to – wear comfortable shoes! The tour is outside for the most part so dress comfortably for the weather. Always recommended – bring some water to stay hydrated. Tours are rain or shine, so bring an umbrella if it looks like rain.
Only a service animal as defined by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) is allowed to accompany guests on tours.
