The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is situated right on the lakefront of Lake Erie and provides the opportunity to easily visit other areas of the city. We walked along the lakeshore and visited the Fire Fighter Memorial before making our way to First Energy Stadium. At First Energy Stadium we had to stop by the statue of probably the greatest Cleveland Browns of all time - Jim Brown.
On our way back to our car we noticed a lot of people walking toward the water so we thought we might see what all the commotion was about. We are glad we did since we were able to watch as the USS Cod, a World War 2 era submarine, was brought back to Cleveland after being refurbished. It was a great experience to see this submarine led by the Coast Guard shooting water cannons as it was pushed by tug boats back to the dock to once again become a floating museum.
Our last stop was to see Jacobs Field, the home of the Cleavland Indians (now the Cleveland Guardians). This was also the place of my greatest sports memory that I witnessed on television on an unseasonably warm November night in 2016. We had to stop and pay our respect.
As we left Cleveland we anticipated an uneventful three hour ride to our hotel in Fremont, Indiana. Were we wrong. There was an accident on the expressway that forced all traffic to exit. We soon found ourselves driving through mostly paved two lane roads through cornfields in the Michigan night. We did make it to our hotel after quite a driving experience to get ready for our final stop in South Bend, Indiana and the campus of the University of Notre Dame the next day.
