Recently expanded to include a fine new performance venue, The Cleveland Institute of Music is one of the many cultural institutions that populate University Circle, on Cleveland's East Side.

Cleveland City Hall is but one of many fine Beaux Arts structures erected to flesh out Cleveland's 'City Beautiful' master plan of 1904. It occupies a prominent position on a high brow of land facing the Lake Erie shoreline.

Also located at University Circle is the Cleveland Botanical Garden. Its glass greenhouse accommodates two separate climactic biomes with their respective flora and fauna. The grounds surrounding the main structure display a vast array of seasonal landscaping, lush with roses of all variety.

The Cleveland Museum of Art

Long recognized as one of the world's finest art museums (and perhaps the very best free public art museum), The Cleveland Museum of Art is just completing a massive expansion and renovation. The Museum's setting at the head of Wade Lagoon — adorned with flowering trees, strolling families and clamorous ducks — is a sublime sight in summer.

Cleveland Music School Settlement

Not far from the Cleveland Art Museum and the Cleveland Botanical Garden in the University Circle area is the Cleveland Music School Settlement. This historic institute continues to dedicate itself to the teaching of music (and dance) to all of the aspiring children of the region, regardless of background or financial wherewithal.

Cleveland Public Library

Anchoring one of the largest and most heavily patronized public library systems in the nation is this downtown branch of The Cleveland Public Library. Housed in several distinctive edifices in the heart of the city — which also embrace a reading garden — this branch serves all citizens with a vast collection and multivariate outreach programs.

As this map shows, the City of Cleveland is a city ringed by a veritable constellation of communities: more than 100 cities, towns, villages and townships in all. But whether they hail from Bratenahl or Bath, Westlake or Woodmere, Independence or Parma, Solon or Garfield Heights, all the people of the greater metropolitan area consider themselves residents of 'The Forest City'.

This former bank structure at East Ninth Street and Euclid Avenue was modeled on a Roman temple, complete with soaring rotunda, topped by a massive Tiffany skylight of stained glass. As a National Landmark it now awaits creative reuse, as Cleveland stages a downtown resurgence.

Cuyahoga County Courthouse

This Beaux Arts structure is a virtual twin to Cleveland City Hall, and occupies a similar position atop a bluff, staring out at Lake Erie. The Cuyahoga County Courthouse sits at the terminus of Ontario Street, just a short distance from the joint City/County Justice Center.

Courtyard on Coventry

Conceived by local architect Rick Zimmerman, Courtyard on Coventry is a multi-story office and retail infill structure that stitches together the urbanized pedestrian streetscape of the Coventry area of east Cleveland.
