Cleveland Bucket List

So, I love Bucket Lists. They are a lot of fun, and helpful to organize your goals for adventurous living. Freshman year of college, my friends and I all made bucket lists. We re-made them senior year, and reviewed what we had and hadn’t done, and what we still wanted to do. It was really fun and eye-opening, and showed how much we had all changed and grew.

This is my (ever growing) Cleveland Bucket List. It is mostly activities I’d like to do or places I’d like to visit. Some of them are strange, some of them are basic. Suggestions are welcome. :)

    Hey, I don’t know you but I’m a longtime TFA blog reader, and I’m also from (and a huge fan of) Cleveland. Just wanted to wish you luck in your placement and say I hope you love Cleveland as much as I do! Make sure you check out the Shaker Square Farmer’s Market and the West Side Market, poke around Tremont, get a milkshake at Tommy’s and some fancy fries or ice cream at Sweetie Fry, take a drive down MLK boulevard past the ethnic gardens, I could go on…in any case, lots of luck!
