A car can help take you on your next adventure, but what happens once you finally reach your destination? At Carvana, we’ve grown accustomed to entering new markets and finding ways to weave ourselves into the fabric of the communities who have adopted the new way to buy a car. It’s one of the exciting elements of what we do.
With that, however, we also know that being the new kid in town isn’t always easy. Which is why our series of guides compiled by Carvana team members in our different markets aims to help both visitors and new residents find their bearings and experience the unique flavors, sights, and sounds that each of our markets has to offer. Our Guide to #CarvanaCountry road show rolls on, as we put the spotlight this week on the The Rock and Roll Capital of the World – Cleveland, Ohio!
Goodtime III/Nautica Queen
Since Cleveland is home to one of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie, what better way to spend your free time than on the water? The Goodtime III is the largest quadruple deck 1,000 passenger luxury ship sailing the Great Lakes and there is always an event or tour that you can catch. The Nautica Queen offers the best dining and sightseeing of beautiful Downtown Cleveland.
West Side Market and Ohio City
Talk about a food coma! Cleveland is home to one of the most historic indoor and outdoor market in the Midwest. The West Side Market is the oldest of its kind in Cleveland and offers you the chance to explore tastes from around the world with over a 100 different vendors and a variety of yummy treats and fresh produce and meats. It is also located near Ohio City, which offers it’s fair share of breweries, restaurants, art galleries and antique shops.
Slyman’s has been open since 1964 and features perhaps the best corned beef anyone has ever tasted. They offer other sandwiches as well, such as brisket, roast beef, burgers, turkey, and even tuna fish. At Slyman’s you can expect to find a slice of the city, as everyone from police officers, factory workers, and white collar business professionals are often seen sharing tables and enjoying hundreds of pounds of freshly made sandwiches each day. This is the reason that Slyman’s is considered a restaurant that offers visitors a true taste of Cleveland.
Rock and Roll Hall of Hame
When in Cleveland, you can rock out at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Downtown Cleveland right on the shore of Lake Erie. There are incredible exhibits not only about famous artists, but also about the people behind the scenes such as producers, engineers, and other figures who had an influence on the development of rock and roll.
Follow the huge chandelier and you will be standing next to the largest performing Arts Center in the United States outside of New York.
