Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit
Set along the
cliffs of Lake Erie, this inner-ring suburb of Cleveland has been on the radar
of the young and urbane for some time. It has a well-established (and thriving)
nightlife and gastronomic scene along Detroit Avenue, as well as a sizable gay
and lesbian community.
See: Every Sunday the Lakewood Band Shelter
at Lakewood Park offers free performances, often big band ensembles. Rock and
blues acts play the Winchester
Tavern and Music Hall.
Taste: Sip on a signature Red Delicious martini
while taking in the magnificent view of Lake Erie and downtown Cleveland from
the nautically themed Pier W.
For heartier fare (though not necessarily healthful), head over to Melt
Bar & Grilled, where chef Matt Fish has elevated the grilled cheese
sandwich to gourmet status.
