CLEVELAND — Do you have some vacation days to use but can't afford to go anywhere?

Why not take a staycation in Cleveland!

Destination Cleveland announced a special event called "Be a Tourist in Your Hometown."

From March 20-24 residents can get special discounts and tours throughout the city and compete in an East Side- West Side challenged, in which residents can learn about both sides of the city.

The challenge encourages people to get out of their comfort zone and try new places.

“Research conducted last year showed that locals were seeking planning tools like those we offer at Destination Cleveland, but they weren’t aware of our resources,” said David Gilbert, president and CEO, Destination Cleveland. “After introducing residents to our tools through this campaign, they can now put them to use by participating in ‘Be a Tourist in Your Hometown’ weekend to gain firsthand experience at the region’s wide variety of attractions and activities. We believe that this event will give residents the resources and experience they need to feel confident in creating authentic recommendations for visitors.”

The weekend will kick off with a concert March 21 at Music Box Supper Club in the Flats West Bank.

Discounts will be offered at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Greater Cleveland Aquarium, Museum of Contemporary Art and more.
