Tour Route and Length

Our Tours of Cleveland begin at Public Square and end at Playhouse Square. Routes may vary due to events going on downtown. Tours last approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. Some stops on the tour offer the opportunity for participants to sit. Tours are rain or shine.

Meeting Spot

We will 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.

Parking

There are multiple garages and surface lots around Public Square 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.

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

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.

Pets

Only a service animal as defined by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) is allowed to accompany guests on tours.

Bonus for Booking this Tour

In conjunction with our local small business partners, each adult on the tour will receive the following:

  • One coupon from the International Women's Air & Space Museum in downtown Cleveland good for 10% off in their gift shop (restrictions apply) and $1.00 off per person for a guided tour of the museum (10 person minimum; call to reserve).
  • One coupon good for a free cup of coffee at Bloom Bakery in downtown Cleveland. 

Coupons will be given out at the end of the tour.
