'''Downtown''' is in [[Cleveland]].
==Get in==
 
===By car===
Three two-digit interstate highways serve Cleveland directly.
* '''Interstate 71''' begins downtown and is the major route from downtown Cleveland to the airport. I-71 runs through the southwestern suburbs and eventually connects Cleveland with [[Columbus]].
* '''Interstate 77''' begins in downtown Cleveland and runs almost due south through the southern suburbs. I-77 sees the least traffic of the three interstates, even though it is the primary connector of Cleveland with Akron.
* '''Interstate 90''' connects the two sides (the terms "East Side" and "West Side" have deep root in defining this region) of Cleveland, and is the northern terminus for both I-71 and I-77. Running due east/west through the West Side suburbs, I-90 turns northeast at the junction with I-71 and I-490, and is known as the Innerbelt through downtown. At the junction with the Shoreway, I-90 makes a 90-degree turn known as "Dead Man's Curve", then continues northeast, entering [[Lake County (Ohio)|Lake County]] at the eastern split with Ohio 2.
* '''Interstate 480''' runs east-west along the southern border of the City of Cleveland and also connects the suburbs of the East Side and West Side. It intersects all three of the above highways, plus it intersects I-271, which serves the eastern suburbs, and I-480 has two connections to the Ohio Turnpike, I-80.

[[Image:Cleveland Arcade Stairs.jpg|right|thumb|250px|Old Arcade]]
 
*'''Terminal Tower''', the centerpoint of Tower City Center, located on Public Square, is the Terminal Tower, built in 1929 as the second tallest building in the world (now it's the second tallest building in Cleveland). The building was also constructed as the main railroad terminal in Cleveland and currently serves as the main hub of the RTA Rapid Lines (below the retail mall levels). Go to the Terminal Tower's observation deck to observe the surrounding environs (particularly, Lake Erie, the winding Cuyahoga River, and the juxtaposition of downtown against industrial uses to the south and west).
*'''Old Arcade''', [http://www.clevelandskyscrapers.com/cleveland/arcade.html]. Built in 1890 and designed by John Eisenmann. The construction was financed by John D. Rockefeller, Marcus Hanna and several other wealthy Clevelanders of the day. The cost of the project was approximately $875,000 - today it would be impossible to replicate. The inspiration of the project is said to be the Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, Italy. Although pedestrian arcades exist in several North American cities, few - if any, compare to the grandeur of the Arcade in Cleveland. The Arcade was the first building in Cleveland to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The structure features a five-story atrium with extensive metal decorative work. The top floor features gargoyles which circle the entire atrium area. The structure includes the famous skylighted atrium as well as two nine-story towers, one each on Euclid Avenue and Superior Avenue. In the past decade, the structure was renovated as a Hyatt Regency Hotel.
*'''Peter B. Lewis Building, Case-Weatherhead School of Business''', designed by Frank Gehry with his trademark undulating metal forms.
 
 
* '''Cleveland Metroparks Zoo''', [http://www.clemetzoo.com/]. Especially check out the Australian animal exhibit and the Rainforest (which requires additional admission fees).
