The Downtown Highlights, Cleveland From the Inside & Downtown Public Art walking tours are approximately 2 hours in length. The Tales of Terror and Downtown Cleveland Christmas tours are 1.5 hours.
Our walking tours meet in Public Square in front of the statue of Mayor Tom Johnson. This is the statue of a man sitting in a chair. It 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 located at 91 Public Square.
We would suggest the Memorial Plaza Parking Garage underneath Mall A. The address is 300 St. Clair but Google Maps will take you to the Il Venetian Restaurant in the Marriott Hotel. The garage is underneath the green space between the Marriott Hotel and the Drury Plaza Hotel. The entrance ramp is closer to the Drury. It is a short walk to Public Square from there. Alternatives would be the Tower City Parking garage or the Jack Casino Parking garage. Remember street parking is free on Saturdays, Sundays and after 6:00 pm any day of the week but follow the signs and posted restrictions.
Best Parking is a website to use to compare parking prices for garages and surface lots downtown.
Returning to the Starting Point
For tours ending in Playhouse Square, it is about a 10 – 15 minute walk, straight back up Euclid Ave to return to the starting point.
