Cultural Institutions near University Circle

The “University Circle” is an area that not only houses Case Western Reserve University, but also multiple museums, University Hospitals, and various shopping, entertainment and dining opportunities: http://www.universitycircle.org

Cleveland Botanical Garden

The Garden was founded in 1930 as the Garden Center of Greater Cleveland. Originally housed in a converted boathouse on Wade Park Lagoon, it was the first such organization in an American city. As the Garden has outgrown its original home, the Garden moved in 1966 to its current location in University Circle, which was the site of the old Cleveland Zoo. http://www.cbgarden.org
