    Visit the 19th-century Victorian house that played the role of Ralphie Parker’s house in the classic American film from 1983, A Christmas Story. The house serves as a museum now, was purchased and restored to appear as it did in the movie. Brick may love lamp, but Ralphie’s dad loved Leg Lamp. That very lamp is on display along with other props, history, and memorabilia permanently etched into the psyche of many who grew up in the ’80s wanting a Red Ryder BB Gun or daring enough to lick a frozen flag pole. Relive the movie in person!

  • Club/dancing

    It is well established that Cleveland Rocks! But it can also pulsate, gyrate, and warble with 808 beats, Moog music, snare claps, and syncopated sub-bass. The top spots in our mind have to be B-Side Liquor Lounge and Arcade and the FWD Day + Nightclub with a members-only pool. More booty shaken beats and sweat-inducing rave-ups found at spots like Magnolia, Rumor, and Touch Supper Club. You should take the leash off at The Velvet Dog known for dancing, bottle service, and a rooftop bar. Bust a move without busting the bank and book a vacation package with Southwest Vacations.
