The Best Things to Do and Eat in Ohio City, Cleveland

It's no wonder that Cleveland's famed Ohio City neighborhood has landed on the map as a prime tourist destination. Located just across the Cuyahoga River from downtown, Ohio City is one of the city's most historic neighborhoods, as well as one of its most ethnically diverse. Its location makes it convenient for visitors and locals looking to get a taste of true Cleveland culture and flavor, and its people are the friendliest and most welcoming around. There are so many things to see and do in this area that sometimes it can be difficult to decide how to spend your day! We rounded up the absolute best things to see, do, eat and drink while you're in the area to help make building your Ohio City itinerary a little easier. Enjoy!

Skip Ahead:

What to Do | Where to Eat | Where to Grab a Drink | Where to Live

What to Do

Wander Through the West Side Market

Cleveland's beloved West Side Market is the oldest indoor and outdoor market space in the area — and a must-see destination for out-of-town guests. The market itself is housed in a historic, architecturally stunning building, and features local farmers, chefs, cheesemakers, butchers and artisans showcasing some of Ohio's best. Come by to stock up on a few groceries or grab a quick bite for lunch — pierogis, fresh pasta, sausage, oh my!

Go Shopping

The district surrounding the West Side Market is packed full of charming cheese shops, boutiques, florists and more — all ripe for exploring! You could never see all of it in one afternoon, but it's worth taking some time to meander through the streets and take a peek at the colorful window displays.

Experience BOP STOP at The Music Settlement

This local jazz club is housed in one of the best-sounding amphitheaters in town. BOP STOP has become a true musical treasure over the years for Clevelanders and visitors alike, and regularly hosts educational programs and performances for all to enjoy.  

Take in the History at St. John's Episcopal Church

Completed in 1868, this magnificent stone Gothic Revival Church is the oldest consecrated building in all of Cuyahoga County. It's a marvel just to witness, but history buffs will love learning about its storied past. In fact, it was Station Hope, the last stop on the Underground Railroad during the mid 19th century. Evidence of this can be seen in the old entrance to a tunnel leading to the Cuyahoga River, which is located in the basement.

Tour the Neighborhood on Cleveland Cycle Tours

We've all seen them — the mobile pedal bars filled with delighted, singing customers hopping from pub to pub. These pedal-driven tours have become increasingly popular over the years, and if you've ever seen one and felt a twinge of jealousy, you should snag the opportunity to try it out. Cleveland Cycle Tours will take you and up to 14 of your friends through the streets of Ohio City, stopping for refreshments along the way at several microbreweries and allowing you to witness the best of this revitalized entertainment district!

Where to Eat

For Trendy New American: Crop Bistro

Crop Bistro recently landed on a list of the best restaurants in Cleveland by Thrillist— and with its fresh take on American cuisine, there's no mystery as to why! The menu includes options for brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert, and incorporates seasonal ingredients for maximum flavor. Bonus: It's also one of the most romantic restaurants in Cleveland

For Farm-to-Table Fare: Flying Fig

This charming eatery sits right near Cleveland's West Side Market and is truly the heart of the farm-to-table movement in Ohio. The restaurant has served the neighborhood for more than 15 years, sourcing ingredients from family farms and local artisans, and using them to craft critically acclaimed menus.

For Globally-Inspired Fare: Johnny Mango

This colorful restaurant has anchored Ohio City for years and is still one of the most popular restaurants in the neighborhood! Locals flock here for festive and flavorful globally inspired cuisine, including Caribbean fried plantains, Jamaican jerk chicken, pad thai and quesadillas. The decor is as colorful as the food, including local artwork and greenery!

For Fried Chicken: SoHo Chicken & Whiskey

SoHo Chicken & Whiskey lives up to its southern name, featuring several variations of delectable chicken dinner (brined, breaded and deep fried) accompanied by comforting side dishes and appetizers. The cocktail menu is definitely whiskey and bourbon forward, but includes several other craft cocktail options and beer on tap.

For Burgers: Heck's Cafe

Heck's Cafe serves up one of the best burgers in Cleveland in a charming, historical building. Take a seat and choose from 14 different burgers and a selection of farm-to-table entrées. You could keep it simple with the Heckburger (featuring Heck's special sauce) or spice it up a bit with the Market Burger (featuring braised short ribs, béarnaise sauce and arugula).

For Dessert: Mason's Creamery

At Mason's Creamery, Jesse Mason and Helen Qin mix up small batches of delicious and perfectly creamy homemade ice cream. It takes them a lot of time to come up with new flavors and ensure they have the recipe perfect, but they don't mind the taste testing! Come by on a hot summer day to enjoy a treat at the outdoor picnic tables, and check out an updated list of flavors here.

For Authentic Mexican Street Food: Momocho Mod Mex

This hip, dimly lit Cantina is one of the six Cleveland restaurants that has been featured on the Food Network's hit show, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. And once you taste the flavorful cuisine, you won't be surprised! A mouthwatering selection of tacos, small bites and entrées is accompanied by carefully mixed cocktails and nine margarita variations.  

For a Cozy Night Out: The Tabletop Board Game Cafe

The Tabletop Board Game Cafe features more than 1,000 different games ranging from the kid-friendly classics to complex strategic options. Grab a few friends or your significant other and stop in for game night, and don't forget to order something tasty from the menu! Options include an impressive lineup of sandwiches and paninis, as well as some inventive appetizers and comforting soups.

Where to Grab a Drink

Great Lakes Brewing Company

Great Lakes Brewing Company was opened in 1988 by brothers Pat and Dan Conway, and is credited as the first craft brewery in the state of Ohio. The brewery has gained national recognition for its innovative and flavorful beers, which can be found in stores across Ohio and across the country. Make sure to take the brewery tour while you're here, which comes complete with a few free samples.

ABC the Tavern

ABC is a bustling hotspot with brick walls, woodwork, a raised ceiling, a laid back cocktail menu and craft beer on tap, and has served the Ohio City neighborhood for more than 20 years now. In that time, it has become a neighborhood institution and a local favorite for a fun night out with friends!

Hoopples

Established in 1981, this laid-back legend overlooks the Cuyahoga River and provides a true feel of old-school Cleveland. Grab a beer on tap and a bar snack, and take in the vintage vibe and views of the Cleveland skyline.

Market Garden Brewery

Located right next to the West Side Market, this chic yet casual spot is the perfect place to duck in for a refreshment after a few hours of shopping. The upstairs area boasts one of the best patios around and views of the bustling scene on West 25th Street.

Porco Lounge and Tiki Room

Drenched in Polynesian-style decor, thatched huts, colorful accoutrements and Tiki mugs, Porco Lounge feels like an escape in the heart of Ohio City. Come for the festive vibe, but also for the innovative (and delicious) cocktail menu.

The Velvet Tango Room

The Velvet Tango Room is your destination for pre-dinner cocktails or a romantic nightcap. The art deco decor and live piano performances add to the swanky vibe, but the real star of the show is the cocktail menu, which features classics and signatures alike — all crafted with fresh ingredients.

Where to Live

Sure, Ohio City is wonderful for a visit. But wouldn't it be wonderful to live nearby? Search homes in the area, or contact one of our knowledgeable local agents today!

During the summer, the town hosts a 10-week programming session complete with concerts, art displays, recreational activities and more — which makes it a popular time frame for tourists. The gorgeous 19th-century summer cottages, colorful gardens and friendly atmosphere of the town landed it on Coastal Living's list of the 10 best beach towns on the Great Lakes. Where to Stay: Built in 1875, the Historic Hotel Lakeside is not just a lovely place to rest your head at night — it's also a notable National Historic Landmark. The hotel is filled with gorgeous Victorian-era decor and includes 79 unique rooms. The hotel is open seasonally from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, so summer is the perfect time to visit! Make a reservation here.

Marietta

What to Do: The town of Marietta is built around Ohio's riverboat heritage, so it's a dream getaway for history buffs. The best time to visit is during the Ohio River Sternwheel Festival, an annual event held the weekend after Labor Day, that features plenty of riverboats and fun, family-friendly activities. But regardless of when you visit, you can always take a sightseeing cruise on board the Valley Gem Sternwheeler, peruse the Ohio River Museum, explore the local shops and restaurants, or walk the trail on the riverfront. Where to Stay: The Lafayette Hotel sits in the heart of Marietta and definitely captures the soul of the town. Each room is decorated in a charming, antique fashion (complete with artifacts and historic photos), and guests will enjoy exquisite food and service.

Mohican

What to Do: This area is known as the Camp and Canoe Capital of Ohio, and definitely lives up to its name. We listed it as one of the best places to go camping in the state, but there are plenty of other reasons to visit — including two state parks, scenic lakes, historic landmarks and the charming shops in downtown Loudonville. You can experience the area through one of the summer festivals or concerts, or a fun-filled vacation with the whole family. While you're here, don't miss a three-hour zip line adventure with Tree Frog Canopy Tours. Where to Stay: If you're lucky enough to snag a reservation at the the Treehouses at the Mohicans, you will remember the experience for the rest of your life. The property houses six incredible, custom-built accommodations that will put the treehouses of your childhood to shame. Take the Little Red Treehouse for instance — which features stained glass windows and a rustic chic vibe. Or maybe consider the luxurious Nest Treehouse, which is straight out of a fairytale.The venue is typically booked for weddings on most weekends throughout the summer, but it does open the schedule for visitors on select dates! Call for availability.

Gervasi Vineyard

What to Do: Gervasi Vineyard is (first and foremost) a highly acclaimed winery near Akron, so you can count on wine tasting to be a main item on the itinerary. In fact, we named it as one of the absolute best wineries in the region! When you're not sipping vino or touring the vineyard, Gervasi Vineyard offers a bounty of other activities to fill the weekend. Enjoy romantic horse-drawn carriage rides, cooking classes, in-room yoga, golf and so much more! Where to Stay: While Gervasi Vineyard is an excellent spot for a drop-in or a romantic dinner, we would also recommend staying onsite at the vineyard. The owners have designed it to be a full weekend getaway experience, and that includes its luxury accommodations!

Amish Country

What to Do: There's a little slice of heaven in the heart of Ohio called Amish Country. Tucked between Cleveland and Columbus, this region boasts gently rolling hills, colorful sunsets, charming farms, friendly people, farm-to-table restaurants and so much more. With so much to do, see and eat, it's the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Where to Stay:  The Inn at Honey Run offers a romantic escape in the heart of Amish Country complete with fireplaces, jacuzzis, and spectacular views of the lush scenery. If you choose one of the two private cottages onsite (which we highly recommend), you can snuggle up next to your sweetheart by your in-room fireplace, or look up at the stars in the private outdoor hot tub.

Columbus

What to Do: Columbus is Ohio's largest city, and the perfect summer getaway for those who prefer a quicker pace and a high level of excitement. Spend your days watching sporting events in the arena district, indulging in an Instagram-worthy meal, escaping to German Village, shopping at the best boutiques, meandering down the Scioto Mile, or exploring the immensely popular Short North Arts District. Here are the six best neighborhoods to explore while you're there. Where to Stay: Hotel LeVeque is an iconic piece of the Columbus skyline, but also one of the best places to stay in the city. Feel like you're gazing up at the stars from the comfort of your own room, which features light projections and art deco-styled furnishings.

Kelleys Island

What to Do: This relaxing oasis offers a little something for everyone — beautiful, crystal-clear waters, excellent restaurants, and opportunities for endless outdoor adventuring. No wonder it's at the top of our list for summer getaways! To get there, you'll have to take the Kelleys Island ferry from Marblehead (which departs every hour) or the Jet Express from Sandusky. Once you arrive, popular activities include boating and water sports, fishing, hiking, biking and kayaking, and there are 127 gorgeous camping sites available on the island for those who enjoy sleeping under the stars. In fact, it's one of 15 best camping destinations in Ohio! Where to Stay: A Water's Edge Retreat boasts stunning views of Lake Erie and a private beach, and has been featured on NBC TODAY for its charming ambience and luxury accommodations. Lounge lazily on the veranda, walk on the beach, enjoy breakfast in the parlor, or borrow a bike to explore the island.

The Wilds

What to Do: The Wilds, owned and operated by the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, is a fantastic safari-like getaway that allows you to see animals in a much more natural environment. Embark on a specialty tour, which could include wine and rhinos, a comprehensive fishing experience, or a horseback sunset safari. And don't miss out on the zipline tour, which allows you to see it all from the canopy! Where to Stay: Book one of the private Yurts at Nomad Ridge in order to get the full Wilds experience. This is one of the most unique and luxe getaways an adventurous couple could ask for, located directly on the grounds of the safari park. And though it feels like you've escaped to the middle of nowhere, the yurts are actually quite lavish, complete with bamboo floors and a spa-like bathroom. After exploring the park, retreat to your yurt and relax on the private porch, catching views of the wildlife off in the distance.

Put-in-Bay

What to Do: Located on South Bass Island just off the coast of northern Ohio, Put-in-Bay is a beloved summer getaway for people from all over the state! The town draws nearly two million visitors every year, all of whom enjoy shopping in the charming stores, fishing for perch and walleye, dining at the excellent restaurants, and dancing the night away in local dive bars. To get there, grab the Jet Express from Sandusky or Port Clinton. Bonus: Amusement park enthusiasts should make sure to check out Cedar Point before or after their trip. This park is consistently ranked among the best in America. Where to Stay: The Island Club provides rental properties for couples, families and friend groups alike. Choose between a charming cottage or a waterfront condo depending on your preference.

Salt Fork State Park 

What to Do: Salt Fork State Park Lodge is tucked away in the rolling hills of southeastern Ohio, just a short drive from Cambridge. And once kids (or kids at heart) experience it, they will ask to come back every summer. This is Ohio's ultimate summer destination, offering a crystal-clear lake for water skiing, swimming and inner tubing, an abundance of horseback riding trails, a gigantic swimming pool, and lit campfires by night. After all, what kind of summer getaway would it be without s'mores for dessert? Where to Stay: Salt Fork Lodge offers a wide variety of guest rooms and two-bedroom cabins to house you during your stay, each equipped with exceptional views, upscale amenities, and easy access to the lake and pool. Plus, there are several pet-friendly options available so your four-legged friend doesn't get left behind!

Cuyahoga Valley National Park

What do Do: Cuyahoga Valley National Park has long been lauded as a bucket-list destination not just for Ohioans, but for people from all over the country. The park boasts lush foliage, cascading waterfalls, interesting rock formations, bountiful wildlife, and plenty of hiking and biking trails to experience it all. In fact, a segment of the trail within the park is part of the National B&B Bike Trail, which connects small B&Bs across the country. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad allows you to enjoy views of the breathtaking scenery from a train car, and there are even a few themed excursions throughout the year if you're looking for something non-traditional. Where to Stay: The charming town of Peninsula, located within the park, is a worthy destination on its own. There are a variety of unique accommodations in the area (including camping), but we recommend the Inn at Brandywine Falls. Overlooking the Brandywine Waterfall, the inn was built in 1848 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Though it has been fully renovated, it hasn't lost an ounce of its historic charm.  

Enjoy your summer vacation!
