Lake Erie and Edgewater Park

Cleveland is on Lake Erie and as such is home to some great beachfront areas. Edgewater Park is one of the beach areas and is a great spot to have a romantic picnic by the water, or just enjoy the summer sun with your sweetheart. “Edgewater Beach, located in lower Edgewater Park, has something from everyone. Make a day of it and rent a cabana along the shoreline or join a pick-up game of beach volleyball. Stroll along the beach while enjoying a delicious scoop of Honey Hut ice cream from Eats and Treats concession stand. Experience panoramic views of downtown Cleveland from the shore and experience a breath-taking sunset.” The park is open until dusk all year round, so don’t forget to stay and enjoy the sunset.

Cleveland Tours

Cleveland is a large city and as such there are many ways to experience the city through tours that are offered from various companies. There are food tours, cycling tours, wine tours, etc. Two of the more interesting and romantic tours that I have found are seeing the city by trolley and on foot with a scavenger hunt. If you choose to go by trolley, you and your love can experience the city and nostalgia while covering 20 miles of the city and listening to some great and fun facts. If you would rather get out there and see the city up close and personal, you and your sweetheart can try the scavenger hunt and experience the fun of solving clues and uncovering some hidden historical gems in the city. Either way is a great way to see the city and share some memories.
