The Cleveland area is rolling out the red carpet. Not only is the city sprucing up and gearing up for the immense challenge of security, transportation and communication but local businesses and organizations are preparing attractive options for delegates who have a little extra time or can extend their stay past the convention to enjoy some of our area's great restaurants, museums, activities and neighborhoods.
While there are a lot of things like many of the museums that are normally free several other sights and activities are dropping their normal admission charges for the week of the RNC. The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame will be free to the public between the hours of 10 and 3. The Hall will be closing early during that week for other scheduled convention events.
One of my favorite places, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, will be free to credentialed delegates. And ready for viewing is the new Tiger exhibit.
The Cleveland 2016 Host Committee has a list of 25 free things to do in Cleveland. Have a look. There promises to be a whole lot more like some summer concerts on Edgewater Beach. Just be careful. You might overdose on hospitality. It will be in abundance.
