Five things you must do when traveling to Cleveland, Ohio.

1. USS Cod Submarine Memorial - Taking the self guided tour of the USS Cod gives you a true ideal of what it must've been like to live on a World War II submarine.

4. Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum - From the incredibly thorough display of historical artifacts to the design of the Museum itself (by renowned architect I.M. Pei), the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum is an awesome experience for fans of rock music and also those just interested in the constantly changing atmosphere of pop culture.

5. Steamship William G. Mather Museum - For those interested in history, maritime history, boating, or steamships, a trip to the Steamship William G. Mather Museum is a must.
