“Designed by internationally renowned architect I.M. Pei, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is one of Cleveland's most striking (and recognizable) pieces of architecture. The 150,000-square-foot building has a glass-enclosed, double pyramid adjacent to a 162-foot tower, both of which soar above the shores of Lake Erie. The museum honors all aspects of Rock and Roll. The museum also honors inductees to the Hall of Fame. They share stories of the people, events and songs that shape our world through exhibits, innovative programs and concerts. ”
“A wonderful zoo! They also have fun special events that vary seasonally - the Asian Lantern Festival is a family favorite of ours.”

Point of Interest
“The USS Cod Submarine in Cleveland: Operating from Australian ports during World War II, Cod is a World War II era GATO class fleet submarine. The 312 foot, 1,525–ton submarine, was launched on March 21, 1943 and was commissioned on June 21, 1943. Her five diesel engines were built in Cleveland, Ohio. Cod received a battle star for each of her seven war patrols, and sank more than 12 enemy vessels totally more than 37,000 tons, and damaging another 36,000 tons of enemy shipping, including the Japanese destroyer Karukaya. It was on Cod’s seventh and final war patrol that she was honored for performing the only international submarine-to-submarine rescue in history. In the South China Sea she came to the aid of the Dutch Submarine O-19 which had grounded on the coral reef outcropping. After rescuing the 56 Dutch sailors the two captains decided there was no hope freeing the sub. It was destroyed by the Cod and the rescued sailors were delivered to the recently liberated Subic Bay naval base. The Cod is now docked in Lake Erie in Cleveland, and is maintained and operated as a memorial those submarine sailors who have lost their lives during the United States history. Because of her unique status as the very last unmodified U.S submarine from the WWII era she has been named a National Historic Landmark.”
