Cleveland in the Summer

The following blog post is brought to you by Weatherhead's Office of Student Experience, which is here to assist students with finding opportunities for experiences outside of the classroom that will complement the holistic learning environment of Weatherhead. Learn more.

There are so many things to do in Cleveland in the summer! We know that you will likely be busy with work and internships, but a recharge is necessary for everyone.

For those living around campus this summer, Coventry Village offers plenty of activities sure to give you great memories of Cleveland. Kicking off the summer, on May 30, a bike tune up with trained bicycle mechanics on hand to provide free tune ups and minor repairs, will be held on the corner of Euclid Heights Blvd and Coventry. Engaging the free spirit of Coventry is easy with Friday night cult classics played outside in Coventry P.E.A.C.E. park. I recommend checking out the Prince classic Purple Rain on Friday, June 12. Click Here for a full list of great activities, including pie fights and drum circles.

Needing some beach time? Check out Thursday night happy hours at Edgewater Park starting Thursday, June 11. Averaging a few thousand people every week, this is surely a great place to meet some new people in your area or just have a great time with your crew.

Saturday June 13 marks the 26th Parade the Circle event! This is a parade of hand crafted floats, stilt walkers, and local performers of all ages. A classic Cleveland event that gives you amazing photo-ops to send home! My favorite are the giant papiermache puppets and the elaborate wheelchair costumes made for the residents of local assisted living facilities.

Fairly new to the scene, but quickly becoming a beloved tradition, Cleveland World Festival will move up its date this year beginning at 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 3. This event celebrates the many cultures represented in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens along Martin Luther King Blvd. Check out some photos from last year!

And don’t forget, Cleveland is a gorgeous forest city when all the plants are in bloom. Get in touch with nature, and yourself, by visiting any of our Metroparks. There are plenty of new sports and activities to try out on your own or with some friends. Imagine a fun date learning to paddle board! Check out a great directory of sporting activities for your summer!

On behalf of the Office of Student Experience, we have had a wonderful time getting to know the students. We hope you have a fantastic summer, with lots of stories to tell.
