Entertaining your Wedding Guests While in Cleveland
Friends who haven't seen one another in years, and families who treat weddings as the inspiration for an extended reunion might want to plan group activities before or after your wedding date. Your bridal party and closest relatives might decide to ditch pre-wedding traditions ("ladies teas" and "gentlemen's golf") to do things as a group, especially if kids are part of the festivities.
We've already mentioned the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, the latter being the crown jewel of a network of improved trails, lakefront parks, and a stunning public golf course. There are automobile, aviation, and space museums, the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, and just an hour away the 150-year-old Cedar Point amusement park. There's something for everyone to enjoy at their own pace, or as a group.
If you're planning a rehearsal dinner or are just taking a crowd out on the town, Hofbrauhaus Cleveland is a local favorite for a fun, casual atmosphere and authentic German food. For a more upscale, "foodie" experience at an unexpectedly affordable price, Table 45 at the InterContinental Cleveland offers indoor and outdoor seating for large groups. Smaller dinner parties might want to duck into a locally-owned downtown bistro or wine bar, or capitalize on the rock & roll party theme with a trip to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, or the local House of Blues.
