C-Town has rebounded over the past 15 years to become one of the best turnaround stories in the country. The construction of Jacobs Field (now called Progressive Field), The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and other attractions has helped to accelerate a renaissance that began in the 1980s.
The nightlife and the restaurant scene in Cleveland has also improved dramatically, particularly in the Warehouse District, the Tremont area and the East 4th area near Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena.
One area suffering a bit is the well-known Flats. The West Bank is still cool in the summers, with Shooters drawing huge crowds along the river, but the East bank has been hit hard by the popularity of the Warehouse District. So if your first instinct when arriving in town is to tell the cabbie to take you to the Flats, have him drop you off on West 6th in the Warehouse District instead. You'll thank us. Fortunately, that will be changing soon, as a huge devleopment will replace much of the real estate on the East Bank, with restaurants, condos and office space.
