When you catch a break from the books, visit the Gateway Sports Complex to see MLB team, the Indians, or jump on the Lebron James bandwagon when you cheer on the Cavaliers. or if you're a football fan, you can find the Cleveland Browns at the North Coast Harbor along with several museums, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Cleveland also invests in the arts and boasts one of the nation's best orchestras in the 2nd largest performing arts center in the US.
