In the latest ranking of the top ten American cities in the nightlife scene, Cleveland took an impressive  fifth place. The list was compiled by the Apartment Guide blog, which compares the ratio of the number of city residents to the number of music institutions, pubs, restaurants, and clubs.In its rankings explanation, Apartment Guide had this to say about Cleveland: "Expect plenty of live music in the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, plus breweries and legendary late-night bites like pierogies and Polish Boys. Cleveland is also home to Brewnuts, where the donuts are made with craft beer Enough said."


In October 2016, when the Cleveland Basketball Team, The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA, while the Cleveland Indians were preparing to play the final match of the World Series baseball, Forbes Magazine erupted in an enthusiastic article titled “Why Cleveland Is America's Hottest City Right Now”. Forbes listed the success of the city on the shores of Lake Erie in various areas: in addition to sports, biomedical and high-tech startups are gaining phenomenal success, luring the brightest young talents from Boston, Austin and Silicon Valley; the city has world-class art galleries and museums, and lots of great bars and restaurants. On Saturday evenings, East Force Street looks like Soho in Manhattan or South Beach in Miami.

Cleveland’s impressive revival was the result of many years of focused efforts, investment in urban and tourism infrastructure, and the creation of a unique identity for Ohio’s second largest city.

Prerequisites for this, of course, existed before. In 1870, cementing the city’s reputation as the locomotive of American industry, he founded Standard Oil, the largest company in the world, John Rockefeller - the richest businessman in  world history ( buried in Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland). Rockefeller and other financial and industrial tycoons donated a lot to local universities, medical institutions, and cultural institutions. By the mid-twenties of the last century, thanks to the automotive industry, mechanical engineering and other sectors of the heavy industry developing here, Cleveland became the fifth in America in terms of population and one of the richest cities.

Now the city is experiencing a rebirth. According to U.S. News & World Report, Cleveland Clinic is the second in the ranking of the best hospitals in the United States. Among the best in the USA and the world are the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. The Playhouse Square Theater Complex is the second largest in the United States after the New York Lincoln Center.

Cleveland houses the famous Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the West Side Market, magnificent botanical gardens, unique skyscrapers, cathedrals, sports facilities, and many parks and monuments. Cruises along Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River give you the opportunity to enjoy the views of the beautiful American city.
