Best Gay Bars In Cleveland
Motorcycle Clubs near Cleveland, OH
Enough years have passed since Cleveland's darkest days that this energetic city on the southern shore of Lake Erie has begun to earn some legit cachet as a cool place both to visit and live. This isn't to say that Cleveland doesn't receive its share of ribbing for being something less than glamorous, but its portrayal in TV hits like Hot in Cleveland and, earlier, The Drew Carey Show - as well as such movie classics as Christmas Story and the gay '80s coming-of-age flick Edge of Seventeen presented a lovable, unpretentious, and quirky side to the city nicknamed by detractors, lamentably, as "the mistake by the lake" for many years. Cleveland is riding relatively high these days, having become one of the most-improved cities in the Midwest, and earning considerable praise as a key tourist destination. It also hosted the the 9th Gay Games , which provided the city with a platform for showing off just how much its changed for the better.
