You’re in Cleveland and want to see what it has to offer. However, you don’t have endless funds. You need some free or low-cost activities to keep you busy. Well, you’re in luck. Our staff at City Auto Rental has put together this list of budget-friendly things to do in the greater Cleveland, OH, area.
1. Visit the zoo at a reduced rate.
The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo offers $1 off ticket prices if you purchase them online instead of at the door, making a trip to the zoo even more affordable. Also, if you’re a resident of Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township, you qualify for free Mondays at the zoo, with a valid ID.
2. Explore The Cleveland Museum of Art.
Admission to The Cleveland Museum of Art is free to the public. However, note that some special exhibits may require tickets, which you can purchase online in advance.
3. Shop Westside Market.
Whether you just want to window shop or pick up some local good deals, check out the Westside Market. You can find fresh produce, baked goods, and more.
4. Drive by the A Christmas Story house.
Fans of the movie A Christmas Story will appreciate a glimpse of the house that made the leg lamp famous. There is a cost for tours of the house, but you don’t have to pay just to drive or walk by.
5. Visit The Arcade Cleveland.
One of the most popular Cleveland landmarks is The Arcade. This iconic retail center was the very first of its kind, opening in 1890 and continuing to make an impact on Cleveland commerce today. You can go to soak in the atmosphere without ever spending a dime. Plus, it’s within easy walking distance of other downtown Cleveland attractions, like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Progressive Field (where the Cleveland Indians play), and more.
These local attractions are just a few of the things to check out when you’re here. To save money, you can also enjoy some time exploring local parks or just people watching in the downtown area.
