Free Fun at the Cleveland Museum of Art

Free Fun at the Cleveland Museum of Art

I was so excited that the Cleveland locals voted for us to visit the Cleveland Museum of Art during my media trip with Positively Cleveland. I absolutely LOVE art!  Cleveland locals voted for each attraction/ meal via facebook and twitter for the duration of our stay.  I loved this concept because it felt like a spontaneous adventure with choices that reflected the local favorites by Cleveland residents.

Taft Museum of Art

Do you ever go on adventures solo? I decided to take advantage of my husband and boys spending the afternoon watching football to sneak away for a few hours to explore the Taft Museum of Art. I understand that we won’t always want to try the same things all the time. One of my friends couldn’t make it due to working later so I went to my adventure destination anyway.

My kids are pretty used to trying new things all time, so I didn’t receive too much resistance for checking out Shakespeare in the Park in our community.  I did come prepared and had the boys bring some of their favorite Star Wars books in case they didn’t like it and got bored.
