East Flats has lots of newer places than the West, but both have lots of restaurants and its fun to walk around. Everything is right on the water.

This old industrial area has been modestly re-positioned as a nightlife area with a few restaurants, bars and clubs. Still lots of industrial wasteland. And most of the bars and noisy boozy places. Not so great.

We stopped to have some snacks and drinks before going to a Brown's game. Lot of bars and eateries and you can see Lake Erie. Nice place.

There is lots to do in this area called the flats. The aquarium, Lolley the Trolley, a venue for concerts and the dock to pick up the River Queen.

We drove through the east and west sides of the Flats tonight and is absolutely hopping!! Clearly one of the action spots in town and something for everyone. A must-see if you're in Cleveland, the biggest small town in the USA!
