Get Outta Town: The 2018 Summer Road Trip Guide

2 comments

From music in Motown to arts and beer in the Queen City, from a game in one of baseball's great temples to one of the largest strips of bars in the country, it's high time to pack the car and get the hell out of town for a weekend.

Sure, you might be right with us, drooling over Instagram shots from pals who've recently jetted to Europe or the Caribbean. And you too might have bookmarked the New York Times' "52 Places to Go in 2018" list, and set up automatic alerts for bargain flights to a place you only recently learned existed. But some of the best summer destinations around await just a few hours away from Cleveland. Packing a wallop of arts, culture, food and drink, they're nevertheless easy on the wallet and digestible in a long weekend to boot. And, lord knows, you're going to need one.

Here are all the spots worthy of your road trippin' time this summer:

Ashtabula

Buffalo

Chicago

Cincinnati

Detroit

Pittsburgh
