Spring Break Staycation: Cleveland Style

Spring break is finally here and it is time to take a much needed vacation from school.

There’s only one problem: you are scheduled to work the entire week. You and your friends couldn’t get organized enough to plan a big get away, so you’re all stuck at home babysitting your younger siblings or working alongside high schoolers at your local job. Don’t you worry, though, here are some fun staycation ideas to do while home for spring break! I spent my spring break back in Akron, and here are some of the fun things I found while everyone else was posting beach pictures.

  1. ADMISSION IS FREE! You only have to pay for parking (if you park in the parking garage), there is a big open atrium right when you walk in with perfect lighting for some fun pictures with your friends. There’s also a coffee shop and several floors of cool art to look at! 

  2. 2. University Square

    After your trip to the museum you can drive only a mile or so down to University Square where are there are tons of restaurants and little shops to check out. Grab lunch and coffee at the nearby Panera, and take some pictures in front of all the amazing murals.

  3. Check out West Side Market for all kinds of great food and coffee! Check out all the vendors and little speciality shops! Another great place for photo ops if that’s what you are looking for!

  4. 4. TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME

    Check out the Cleveland Indians play! Since it is springtime after all, baseball season is upon us! Go check out the team and of course all of the yummy ballpark snacks and drinks!

  5. Check out the zoo! With the warmer weather, the animals are all now out and looking adorable! Go checkout the bears, wild cats, and my favorite, the African Elephant!
