July 14, 15 – Cleveland: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Science Center, Whiskey Island

15 Jul

We will be leaving Cleveland tomorrow morning, heading to Geneva, then Erie, and then we will cross back to Canada and be near Port Dover. We have had a great time in Cleveland even in the heat!
We toured the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame yesterday and I would totally recommend it if you were in Cleveland. I wouldn’t say to make a pilgrimage to the place, but if you’re in the city, then it worth while. Some of the highlights were seeing the many stage costumes worn by Elvis (sequined jumper!), The Beatles, David Bowie, Diana Ross and many many more. We saw Elvis’ purple cadillac, Janis Joplin’s porsche and toured Johnny Cash’ bus!

Today, we toured the Great Lakes Science Centre. It was interesting however, it was certainly not as good as the Chicago Museum of Science and Technology or even the Ontario Science Centre. We had lots of fun though.

We also saw home of the Cleveland Browns. The stadium is huge!

The most fun we had though was at our marina – Whiskey Island. The name should say it all! We arrived, totally confused because were expecting someone to come out and catch the boat, and to arrange for Customs. Nothing like that happened – this is the most relaxed marina we’ve ever been in! The best part though is that there is an outside bar and grill – Jimmy Buffet style. Live bands play on Friday and Saturdays throughout the summer. The two bands we saw were excellent – blues and great dancing songs – no heavy metal or anything like that. We met lots of nice people. I would totally recommend this marina – just for the atmosphere – very casual and very friendly! The only drawback of any marina in Cleveland is that it is quite far away from the main downtown or from a grocery store. Other than that, it was great!

    Too bad you didn’t hit Port Dover on Friday the 13th! Sounds like you are heading our direction…
