University Circle


Each year, over 2.5 million people “find themselves in the Circle” - named one of America’s 10 Prettiest Neighborhoods by Forbes Magazine. Located four miles from downtown Cleveland, University Circle is the most concentrated square mile of arts and culture in the nation. It’s home to 20+ venues - including the Western Reserve Historical Society, Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Institute of Music, CIA, and Severance Hall - Cleveland Orchestra’s winter home, and neighboring Little Italy!

Wade Oval, its outdoor venue, hosts Parade the Circle every spring, live summer concerts & movies, autumn scarecrows, and a winter skating rink. Wander along the museum campus or historic side streets where 19th century mansions are restored as boutique hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops. And don’t forget the Hershey Children's Garden at the Botanical Garden - the first public children's garden in Ohio and one of the few of its kind in the U.S.
