Home of Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians, Progressive Field promises sports fans a good time whether it be for an actual game or just a tour. If you're in town for game, you should consider going as you'll get the most authentic Progressive Field experience. However if there's not a game, you can still visit the facility via a guided tour. The one-hour tours cover the entire premises, so visitors will be able to see the batting cages, FanCave, the party suite, the club lounge, the bullpen and the Heritage Park Indians Hall of Fame Museum.

Those who visited Progressive Field for a baseball game said they had a blast thanks to the vendors' tasty food and the cheap tickets, some of which cost only $10. The majority of visitors say there's not a bad seat in the house, so you're pretty much guaranteed a quality view of the field. And the tours also come highly recommended, as many noted the guides are knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information to visiting fans.

Centrally located in downtown Cleveland, Progressive Field can be reached using public transportation, via car and by foot. There is both on- and off-site parking and parking passes can be purchased directly from the website. The free Progressive Field Indians Shuttle operates around the vicinity and takes visitors to and from the entrance and parking lots. The rail's Red, Blue and Green Lines, the trolley's E- and B-Line and the BRT's Healthline all have stops nearby. Tour tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for children ages 14 and younger and seniors 60 and older. (Tours are only available from May 1 to September 5; tours are unavailable during day home games, special events and on holidays.) Tickets for games vary in price and can be bought directly on the stadium's website.

#1 Cleveland Metroparks

More than 21,000 acres of nature preserves make up Cleveland's extensive metropolitan park system. There are 18 parks and reservations throughout the Cleveland area that offer a variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, fishing, boating, horseback riding and more. Visitors can learn about the reservations at any of the 10 nature visitors centers or partake in group programs like animal tracking and nature explorers. Bring lunch and rest your legs in the picnic areas located throughout the parks.

Although all the reservations provide endless amounts of outdoor fun and gorgeous scenery, the Rocky River Reservation and North Chagrin Reservation come highly recommended from past visitors who said the views were incredible and the nature sightings were aplenty. Many reported seeing a variety of ducks, frogs and birds. The thousands of trails are also great for walks, hikes and bike rides. The Lakefront, Brookside and Washington reservations are within the downtown Cleveland area, and are convenient alternatives if you don't feel like making the trek to the Rocky River and North Chagrin reservations.
