Experience the Flats
The Flats border both banks of the Cuyahoga River, where the city's founder Moses Cleaveland first landed in 1796. While the Flats were originally an industrial district focused on maximizing Great Lakes shipping routes, they have become more associated with entertainment and residential living in the past 10 years.
The River runs through the East and West Bank, where investments in economic development are occurring. The West Bank has expanded with the Greater Cleveland Aquarium and the East Bank is undergoing a major transformation with the Flats East Bank Project.
