Top attractions in Cleveland featured in Made Manual

While visiting "Made Manual" after their post listing this blog as one of six featured blogs showing the range of blogs discussing issues of interest to LGBT people, we saw this article on Cleveland, host city for Gay Games IX in 2014:

Ask ten people for their random impressions of Cleveland, Ohio attractions and you're undoubtedly going to have every one of them mention the Cleveland Browns or LeBron James. But there's more than ever to do in this Lake Erie town—which carries the derogatory name "Mistake by the Lake"—than football or basketball. Cleveland has had a notable resurgence and these Cleveland, Ohio attractions are among the most interesting to check out:
