Take a Hike on Cleveland 19 News

Take a Hike,presented by Dollar Bank, was featured on Cleveland 19 News by Tiffani Tucker on Tuesday, August 25th.  The Playhouse Square tour had over 100 people enjoying the history, dazzle, theatrical performances (both inside the theatres and on the tour!) and a beautiful night in Cleveland as the group explored the neighborhood.

One of five tours to choose from, including the Gateway District, Warehouse District, Civic Center, Canal Basin Park in the Flats and Playhouse Square, Take a Hike offers free summer fun through September 16th.  Check back soon for information about the Extended Take a Hike season, which will kick off in October.

The program is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.  The tours also receive generous support from Ohio & Erie Canalway and Downtown Cleveland Alliance.
