CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland – rippling “with new cultural energy” – is among the top places to visit in 2018, according to National Geographic Traveler, which recently named the city to its annual Best of the World list.
Cleveland is among 21 destinations cited by the magazine in its December/January issue, and one of just three in the United States. Other destinations on the list: Madagascar; Dublin, Ireland; Oaxaca, Mexico; plus San Antonio, Texas, and Oahu, Hawaii in the United States.
