The 2016 World Series gets underway from Cleveland this week. And while the hometown Indians will be looking to win their first world title in nearly seven decades, visitors will be searching for something to do ahead of the action.
Fortunately, there's plenty to do on the southern shore of Lake Erie.
Hop Aboard the Fatty Wagon
Cleveland's Great Lakes Brewing Company is rolling out the Fatty Wagon for the World Series. You can buy tickets at Great Lakes' brewpub and unwind while the wagon transports you to Progressive Field for the game or watch party.
Go to a Cavs, Browns Game
The defending NBA champions open their season with four of their first five games at home inside Quicken Loans Arena. Head over to "The Q" to watch LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in action.
If you're looking for something to do prior to a potential Game 5 Sunday night, you can watch the win-less Browns host the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium. At least tickets won't be hard to come by.
