Seeking CP trip advice

Wednesday, March 12, 2003 5:02 AM
A group of friends and I are planning a trip to CP May 16th and 17th. Currently we are planning on coming into the Cleveland area Thursday evening then travelling from Cleveland to CP both Friday and Saturday. We are basing ourselves in Cleveland seeing as after CP closes, Sandusky offers little in entertainment and nightlife.

My interests are, how long does a typical drive from Cleveland to CP take? How much more are hotel rates Cleveland than at a CP resort (including package rates with included tickets). How much more of a nightlife does Cleveland offer? What kind of wait times should we expect on the big rides on Friday the 16th?

jkpark's avatar It depends where you are comming from in Cleveland. I would say at the most, approximately 45 minutes.

The drive is going to be about 45 minutes if you do about 70 mph. If you go the speed limit, you're looking at about 1 hour.

Cleveland has a ton of nightlife. The flats has a lot of dance clubs, Hooters, nice restaurants like the Watermark, a comedy club called the Improv. There is Great Lakes Brewery (restaurant / bar/ brewery), Speghetti Warehouse etc. There are also Jazz and Blues clubs down there and in the surrounding areas. There are also quite a few strip clubs in Cleveland area. There are also tours you can take on boats of the lighted bridges along the Cuyahoga River, however, I'm not sure if they run that early in the season. You could visit for more info also.

There are several neighborhood bars / sports bars in Cleveland, many serve food and quite a few offer live bands or karoke (sp?) There are a lot of restaurants.

For hotels, I am not sure. I don't know of any that have package deals with CP tickets. If you're a AAA member, check with them. What kind of hotel are you looking for? Middle class or ritzy? I could help you a little more if I knew where exactly in Cleveland you were planning on staying. Downtown will cost you more than suburbs will. Most areas are highway accessible.

Hope this helps a little.

...Agghh, gimme a break will ya?

Looking to stay at a moderate to cheaper hotel, just a place to crash really. Location between the two but closer to Cleveland would be ideal. We are checking out AAA deals, but don't know of any offhand yet either.
