2-Day Trip -- Cleveland: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Live Music, Aquarium & Tour

  • Nov 17, 2012 · 8:00 AM

The email with bus locations & pickup times was sent at 4:30 PM on Thursday Nov 15th to all registered passengers. If you did not receive this email, please check the spam folders of your email program. If you still don't see it, please contact me with your email address and I will send you another copy.

Do you like music? If so, this is the trip for you!

We will be visiting the mecca for music fans everywhere -- the world famous Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH. But let's face it, we can't go to Cleveland and visit just the Hall of Fame so here's what else you get to enjoy in this activity packed 2-day weekend trip:

We will be staying overnight in the top rated Springhill Suites by Marriott, ranked as one of the top 10 hotels in Cleveland area.

On Saturday night we will be having dinner at a restaurant that can truly be called a Cleveland institution. This restaurant has been serving authentic Polish and East European Cuisine in Cleveland since 1929! And while we're enjoying our dinner, we will also get to enjoy live East European music. Polka anyone?

After dinner we will visit one of the famous blues lounges in Ohio that's been showcasing local jazz and blues musicians since 1959. We will have some drinks, chill, chit-chat and listen to live music.

On Sunday morning we will have a deluxe hot breakfast at our hotel and then head out to check out the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. After our museum visit, we will have lunch at one of the largest Hard Rock Cafes in North America.... no surprise since it's located so close to the Hall of Fame and gets so many music fans.

After lunch we will spend some time exploring the amazing new Cleveland Aquarium. As most of you know, usually when we visit aquariums, we are on the outside and the fish are inside the tanks. The Cleveland Aquarium has reversed that concept and here, the fish are on the outside and we walk through a glass tunnel with the water all around us. Should be very interesting to say the least.

    This is a excellent museum with an impressive collection. Unfortunately, they lose major points in my book for not allowing photography in 98% of the museum. I love taking photos so this was a major disappointment! Luckily there are a few spots outside and in the non-exhibit areas where photography is allowed. I enjoyed the Elvis collection,Michael Jackson items and the slim collection of items from the late 90's-mid 2000's rap/hip hop area. I feel like you really need to be a music buff to appreciate a majority of the items here. I like music and all but was not too familiar with older artists or interested enough in some of the artists to fully appreciate seeing sheets of written music or guitars that they used. I did love the vast majority of clothing they had on display and enjoyed the way the displays were set up. Lots of interactive areas. There is also a large gift shop. If you love music as I do must go this place. Completely worth it! As for Aquarium, I give Zero star.

    Would it be possible to have a pick-up point in Scarborough?

    November 11, 2012

    • Sash

      Hi Rita, I'm sorry but we won't be able do a Scarborough pickup on this trip so York Mills is going to be the closest. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday morning.

      Hi Evelyn, Cleveland is about 5.5 hours away from Toronto but with stops along the way, we will get at approximately 3:30 PM.

      Hi Isabelle, we should be back in Toronto on Sunday evening at approximately 10 PM. Children 10 and older are welcome to join us so your 12 year old will be just fine.
