General

Cleveland is one of the few US cities with great shopping downtown. You'll find distinctive shops, as well as national favourites at the Avenue at Tower City Center. While resting between stores, you can admire the dancing water fountains and towering skylights.

To immerse yourself in international culture, visit the West Side Market. It's one of the largest indoor-outdoor markets of its kind and dates to the early 1910s. You can haggle with vendors over the price of produce, meat, seafood and baked goods. Save time to stroll down West 25th Street, where you can browse a variety of specialty and gift shops.

Shopping hours are generally Monday-Saturday, 10 am-9 pm; Sunday 10, am-6 pm.

Places to Shop

Downtown Cleveland is home to Tower City Center, a large urban complex, a retail mall, hotels and the Terminal Tower. Shops range from high-end to standard mall franchises. The food court has great views of the river. Tower City is connected by walkway to the Tower City Amphitheater, the Quicken Loans Arena and Jacobs Field, and the new courthouse. Rapid Transit lines head west to the airport as well as through University Circle and suburbs to the east.

The Galleria at Erieview is another complex downtown that includes a popular lunch-time food court. It has recently been hosting art galleries and art events.

Shaker Square is an historic shopping centre built in 1929 and connected to downtown and the eastern suburbs by two Rapid Transit lines. The Square includes some interesting shops and restaurants and serves as the centre of a diverse, lively neighbourhood.

Shoppers have been flocking to Northeast Ohio since the development of several lifestyle centres have attracted upscale retailers. On the East Side, Legacy Village (in Lyndhurst) has been added to Cleveland's fashion district along Cedar Road, which includes Beachwood Place and La Place in Beachwood. Nearby, Eton Collection, on Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere, provides even more upscale options for shopping and dining. On the West Side, Crocker Park in Westlake, provides a mixed-use "new town" environment with upscale shopping.

Cleveland's active art community has galleries throughout the area with larger concentrations in Tremont, Ohio City (just across the Cuyahoga River from downtown), and Little Italy. Unique boutiques abound in the inner ring suburbs of Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and Lakewood. New England charm and "mom-and-pop" shops can be found along the public squares of Western Reserve towns (settled as the Connecticut Western Reserve), including Chagrin Falls, Hudson, Olmsted Falls, Willoughby, Medina, Chardon and Painesville.
