On a first visit to Cleveland, many travelers are surprised to discover it's a waterfront city with beaches and sailing. After all, Cleveland saddles right up to the shore of Lake Erie, and in warmer months you’ll find locals sunning on their own blissful stretch of coastline. While there’s currently no ferry service to Canada — occasionally visible from across the lake — you can drive northeast to Niagara Falls (about 4 hours), or head to nearby Sandusky to rent a boat and explore the famous Lake Erie Islands.
