Spending a lot of time in Cleveland over the years, I’ve had the chance to hang out all over town. With that has come a lot of skyline viewing opportunities in The Cleve.
Right alongside the south end of Cleveland Browns Stadium, there is downtown Cleveland.
A short walk away is Voinovich Bicentennial Park along the Lake Erie shoreline. The skyline from here also features the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in the foreground. Turn around 180 degrees and you have the open waters of Lake Erie to capture.
Still at Voinovich, it’s time to walk forwards and backwards on the steps and…
…to soak in all the greenery.
The skyline all lit up at night from the same spot.
Some say the best skyline views come from the Hope Memorial Bridge which crosses over the Cuyahoga River. A couple of quick snapshots while driving.
In my most recent visit, I walked the bridge at sunset. Got a good shot despite the north end sidewalk being closed for rebuilding.
Grabbed this quick shot heading westbound on I-490.
My favorite spot to capture the city is from Edgewater Park, just west of downtown along the lakefront.
You could argue this spot is more scenic in the winter months.
From Edgewater Park you can walk on a narrow path along the lake to get great views of Channel Park marina and the skyline behind.
You never known where you’ll have a skyline photo opportunity. Clevelanders, can you tell me where this shot is probably from? It’s been awhile. 🙂
You can capture the skyline as well from suburbia like here in Independence, Ohio by the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel and the Winking Lizard Tavern.
I found myself just off Ohio State Route 2 opposite Cleveland Browns Stadium and the shoreline in a large, empty parking lot. An open view of the tall buildings from a different angle, cool!
Picking up some produce, meats and more from West Side Market in the Ohio City neighborhood? Take a skyline shot from the parking lot directly behind while you’re there.
Shot from the same vicinity in the Ohio City neighborhood.
Nighttime view by Progressive Field home of Indians baseball. Having sports stadiums right in the heart of the city, downtown and skyline, perfect.
Lots of places, lots of great times and lots of different views of the skyline. I can’t wait to discover more great places to capture the skyline in The Cleve.
Where else do you recommend capturing the skyline in Cleveland? What is the last skyline you captured?
