As News 5 viewers know, the Cleveland area is filled with Hidden Gems. We've shared 100 of them with you. Tucked within our neighborhoods are even more of those gems – the people, experiences and places that aren’t necessarily on any TripAdvisor lists but make every community worth visiting. In this series, we’re exploring the Hidden Gems found within our neighborhoods, and we’re starting with Tremont, a neighborhood that’s more than just restaurants and the Christmas Story House.

1. Treehouse
There are many bars in Tremont, but this one is different.

Treehouse’s name is fitting. Inside the bar is a massive custom-made tree that was created by an architecture out of steel and pipes.

The tree gets decorated for every holiday, which is always the best possible use of trees.

Treehouse is located at 820 College Ave.

2. Visible Voice Books
Visible Voice Books is no ordinary bookshop.

You can reserve the entire store for a brunch with friends or an unusual date night.

They have a café and also serve wine and beer. As all bookshops rightly should.

3. Ukrainian Museum
Cleveland is known for its diversity and embracing other cultures, and the Ukrainian Museum is a great place to learn, particularly in light of recent events.

The museum opened in 1952, and its relevance remains. The New York Times recently highlighted this museum as a place to visit. It offers tours Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The museum is located at 1202 Kenilworth Ave.

4. Loop Tremont
Want to enjoy your morning cup of joe while listening to old records on vinyl like a character from a 1990s coming-of-age movie? Of course, you do.

It's also the perfect place to get some work done away from the office.

5. Hotz Café
Hotz is where you can grab a drink at the bar where baseball legends and "Sultans of (ahem) Swig" Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb visited when they were in Cleveland.
