One of the places that I was SO EXCITED about visiting during my media trip with Positively Cleveland was the house from the movie “A Christmas Story.” It was actually even on my adventure list.

The movie is such a fun tradition to watch every year around the holidays. So many of the scenes from the movie are classics.

Leg Lamp A Christmas Story House Cleveland Ohio

The home still displays the leg lamp in the window for visitors to view.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to take the tour but we did take time to peak in the windows and check out the gift shop.

A Christmas Story House Gift Shop is just across the street from the house where you can purchase just about any kind of novelty item that is themed around the movie.

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.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is also a tourist attraction that is fun and FREE!!! That’s right. .. and not only is it FREE, it also is an incredible museum with a vast variety of art that spans time periods and cultures.
