Thankful for Cleveland (11/22)

I am thankful for lots of things in Cleveland...but here are just a few of them.

> LAKE ERIE. I think we are all so lucky to live close to a real great lake.
Whether it’s spending the day paddling on kayaks or a lazy beach day at Huntington, Lake Erie makes Cleveland a great place to live.

> FAMILY & FRIENDS. The people of Cleveland welcome all with open arms. The Midwest attitude and way of living is the best of the best. From those that are born and raised "Clevelanders" to the many transplants, the area is filled with many interesting diverse individuals, which makes our city a great place to call home.

> THE WEST SIDE MARKET. What better place to go on an early Saturday morning then the Market? Filled with fresh veggies, unique cheeses and the ever popular Ohio City Pasta, it makes for a wonderful weekly shopping extravaganza. The Market makes Cleveland shopping special. Take a trip there to shop for your holiday feasts!

> VINTAGE FINDS. Unlike other cities, we are lucky to have our fair share of fruitful vintage and resale shops to choose from. Stop by half price Monday at Unique Thrift on Lorain or spend a long Saturday morning exploring Chelsea's Vintage Clothing. It's all about the deals, the special acquisitions and the one-of-a-kind scores. Believe it or not, our city is lucky to have such an assortment of vintage vendors nearby.

>SPORTS. What more is there to say other than Go Brownies! Rise Up Cavs! It's Tribe Time Now! Clevelanders should be thankful for our amazing triad of athletic teams that call Cleveland home. Let's go Cleve-Land!

>THE METROPARKS. Home to the best running and biking trails in Northeast Ohio, the Metroparks are a wonderful place to get moving or slow down, all while taking note of the beautiful natural surroundings. From winter to summer and back around to fall, the scenery and many activities that the Metropark system has to offer are extreme...there really is something for everyone. We are lucky to have such an active park system right in our backyard. Enjoy!

> PLAYHOUSE SQUARE. Cleveland is truly blessed to have such a solid foundation in the arts. With the largest theatre district between NYC and LA, the theatres welcome millions of patrons each year. From comedy and kids’ series to dance and musical performances, Cleveland’s true performance powerhouse offers plenty of live entertainment to choose from.

> CORNER BARS (& late night dance parties). Like most cities there are the local neighborhood bars, but no other city can compare to the numerous little watering holes our fair city has to offer. Whether you are looking for a place to sit and chat with friends, dance the night away to a great band or catch a game on the big screens, it's not hard to find a seat at a friendly little place around the corner.

I am thankful for all that Cleveland has to offer us, I hope you are too!

As a self-proclaimed nerd, I am thankful for the award winning libraries. Oh, and of course the museums also make me thankful to be here!
