Coventry has always been Cleveland's answer to the East Village, but a recent series of renovations has made a great shopping district even better. Lighted crosswalks and bigger sidewalks make the street even more pedestrian-friendly, and the decor, which features cast-iron scenes of daily life, makes for interesting viewing. But the best part is still the shops. Big Fun brings back memories of G.I. Joe and Easy Bake Ovens. Mac's Backs offers the fun of garage-sale scrounging for great reads at cheap prices. And there's more than enough grub, whether you're in the mood for vegetarian dishes, Chinese takeout, or expensive steaks.
