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.

    Sash, is there anyway to pay without using online paypal? My credit card was compromised and I am in the process of filling out a fraud report so don't want to use online. Can I send you a cheque? Please let me know.

    October 26, 2012

  • Kristina

    how much time on the bus one way?

    October 17, 2012

    • Sash

      Toronto to Cleveland is approximately 7 hours with border crossing and rest stops.

      October 18, 2012

  • Flo

    On average, how much could one expect to spend on dinner and drinks Sat night?

    October 17, 2012

    • Sash

      Hi Flo, the restaurant on Sat night is quite inexpensive and your whole meal should be well under $20, more likely between $12 and $15. The drinks at the lounge afterwards are priced the same as in bars in Toronto and your expense will depend entirely on how much you consume.
