Best Outdoor Venue

Blossom Music Center

Even after four decades, Blossom is still the best place to catch a concert under the stars. Just a short drive from Cleveland, it still feels like the middle of nowhere -- and so much the better. It's the perfect atmosphere for those looking to lose themselves in the performance. The design of the pavilion and the bowl shape of the surrounding grounds keep reverb and echoes to a minimum, meaning that even in the cheap seats, you won't have to suffer through a night of bad audio. In fact, it could be argued that the cheap seats are the best ones in the house. Sure, the pavilion puts you closer to the action, but the lawn always parties harder.
