Terminal Tower in Cleveland, Ohio is one of the historic buildings seniors can view. Cleveland, Ohio welcomes seniors with activities and events that are as diverse as the older population. Walking historic neighborhoods, visiting garden centers, cheering at sporting events or watching a play, dance or concert, all appeal to seniors. The city's venues are disabled accessible, and most offer senior discounts and welcome their business.

Neighborhood Visits

Combine a walking or driving tour with an outing to Cleveland's neighborhoods (positivelycleveland.com). Seniors can look at the historic warehouse district downtown or view upscale homes and apartments on the "Gold Coast" in the city of Lakewood, on the shores of Lake Erie. The village is recognized as an area of distinct architectural design in a national historic district. Little Italy, known as Murray Hill, was settled in the 1800s and still has restaurants, shops and galleries where seniors can revisit the old country.


Seniors who visit Playhouse Square District (playhousesquare.org) can choose among seven theaters for entertainment. They can attend a play, opera, ballet, concert or festival at one of the theaters. There are five historical theaters that have undergone renovations, including The Hanna Theatre; it opened in 1921 and hosted entertainers such as Al Jolson, Katharine Hepburn, Henry Fonda and Ginger Rogers. Matinees are available for seniors who might prefer to venture out in the afternoon; senior pricing is also available.


Seniors who enjoy professional basketball, baseball and hockey make their way to both Progressive Field (mlb.mlb.com) and Quicken Loans Arena (theqarena.com). The area is home to the Major League Baseball Cleveland Indians, National Basketball Association Cleveland Cavaliers and National Hockey League Lake Erie Monsters. The arena hosts ice skating performances that seniors might enjoy. Some teams host "senior days" or offer discount tickets to seniors.


University Circle (universitycircle.org), four miles east of downtown Cleveland, is known as the city's cultural center. It is home to the Cleveland Botanical Garden, which has been open since 1936 and features 10 gardens, including rose, Japanese and herb gardens. In the same area is Cleveland Cultural Gardens, a 254-acre park donated by John D. Rockefeller in 1896. The gardens highlight 36 spaces devoted to the cultures and nationalities of the city's population. Senior tickets are available.

USS Cod Submarine Memorial

Seniors might be interested in touring the USS Cod Submarine Memorial (usscod.org), a World War II fleet sub docked on Lake Erie in downtown Cleveland. Cod was commissioned on June 21, 1943 and was on patrol during the war, then decommissioned in 1954. Visitors can come aboard seven days a week May 1 through the end of September. The sub is not accessible to the disabled; visitors must be able to negotiate ladders. Shore exhibits are included in the tour.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum (rockhall.com) exists to educate visitors on the significance of rock and roll and the spirit of music. The 150,000-square-foot museum features five theaters, rotating and special exhibits, special events and free public programs. The museum has thousands of artifacts, and thousands more on loan from the industry and performers. Every year performers, nonperformers and sidemen are inducted into the Hall of Fame. The museum has a library and archives. It is accessible to the disabled, and has discount senior tickets.
