Summertime is vacation time, so what are you doing with your days off?

How about a staycation? According to RewardExpert, Greater Cleveland is one of the top ten cities for vacation at home.

Why spend money to get out of town for vacation when you can save money and take in some of the major attractions and events in Cleveland? Cleveland is filled with places to go and things to do.

The website cites the Cleveland Metroparks and its 21,000 acres of parkland, rivers and creeks. It also mentions Cleveland's public pools, which are abundant.

Another major gemstone is Playhouse Square and its four theaters.  Why go to New York to see a Broadway play when the touring play will come to Playhouse Square? Cleveland boasts the second highest number of theater seats outside New York. A total of 10,000 seats await you if you are looking for quality theater.  

And, of course, the miles of Lake Erie shoreline are a highlight on the Northcoast of America. Even if you don't like getting in the water, just sitting on the shoreline and watching the sunset in Lake Erie is a treat. 

So, if you're considering where to go for vacation and you live in Greater Cleveland, why not decide on a staycation? Take the opportunity to see the city in a brand new light.
