Things to Do in Cleveland Over Break

Be sure to relax and have some fun over break. Besides seeing family and friends, here are a few things to do in Cleveland:

  1. See a play at Playhouse Square. A Christmas Carol and A Christmas Story are two notable offerings this holiday season.
  2. Ice Skating Rink at Public Square; daily through February 29. Get fresh air and exercise with a skate at the rink at Public Square–at night the square is lit up for the holiday season.
  3. Glow at the Cleveland Botanical Garden; now-through January 5. This year’s indoor and outdoor winter wonderland features gingerbread houses, tree displays, model trains, kid activities, an outdoor Garden Express train, a two-story tree, light displays, a Treetop Shop and Sweet Shop for young browsers, decorate-your-own-gingerbread, and more.

  5. A Christmas Story House; open daily. The house used in the popular holiday classic A Christmas Story has been restored to its original 1983 movie appearance. The house takes visitors on a nostalgic journey to the sights and scenes where Ralphie Parker dreams of nothing but receiving a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle for Christmas. In addition to the Christmas Story House, visitors can explore the museum where items from the movie are on display, more than 100 behind-the-scenes photos are featured and movie-related memorabilia can be purchased.
