But, while you’re in town, why not get the full Cleveland Experience by exploring all that the birthplace of rock and roll has to offer?
Friday, May 17
Upon arriving in Cleveland, head 13 miles from Downtown to the I-X Center (www.ixcenter.com) near the airport for the 2013 Cleveland Marathon Health and Fitness Expo and packet pick-up.

Next, grab a hearty, carbohydrate-filled meal in the east side Little Italy (www.littleitalycleveland.com) neighborhood. First settled in the late 19th century by skilled Italian artisans, Little Italy has retained much of its Old World charm and tight-knit sense of community. A blend of art galleries, shops and restaurants, Little Italy offers some of the finest Italian dining in Cleveland including pizzas and pasta, calzones and calamari. Some local favorites include Guarino’s, the oldest continually operating restaurant in Cleveland since 1918, the new and vibrant Mia Bella and pizza slices from Mama Santas. Of course, don’t forget to indulge in a little dessert like a cannoli from Corbo’s Bakery or gelato from Presti’s Bakery.
