    Our annual NFL trip is taking us to Cleveland next month to see our Seahawks take on the Browns. We plan to get to Cleveland early Saturday and take off for Caesars Windsor after the game on Sunday.

    Looks like a visit to the R&R HOF is gonna happen on Saturday afternoon. Any other recommended neat things to see or do in the area? Any recommendations on a good mid-range restaurant for dinner?

    As a proud Degen I noticed Cleveland is home to JACK Casino downtown as well as MGM Northfield. Anyone with experience or knowledge about these two casinos care to share any information, tips, advice? We will most likely visit one, or both, on Saturday evening.

    Hotel rooms are totally sold-out downtown so it looks as though we will be staying about 15 miles out from the downtown core. Parking info would be helpful as well, both for the casinos, and for the football game.

    Thanks in advance!

    Jack casino downtown has slots, VP, and table games. MGM is a newer, nicer "racino" with only slots and simulcast horse racing but does have live harness racing on certain nights. Parking is free at MGM but there is a charge at Jack. I don't go to the Jack myself since it's in an old department store and it's like gambling in an old department store. I can't help with restaurant ideas because I don't go out to eat much. There are some good restaurants at MGM like Kosar's Steakhouse but I've only eaten at the (comped) buffet. By that time the Browns should be well in the tank with injuries and suspensions and defeats so you'll enjoy the victory.

    I forgot to add that there's a Jack racino nearby. Not to be confused with the real Jack casino downtown. Sketchy area, avoid. I also forgot to recommend the Pro Football HOF in Canton about an hour south of Cleveland.

    Thanks for the info!
    The football HOF would be awesome to visit... might not have time to fit it in this trip but will make note for the future.

    Thanks for the info, East 4th looks cool!
    Do you think we would be able to park at the casino garage on Sunday morning for free if we put up 500 points on the players card either before or after the game? Shouldn't be too difficult at 3 points per dollar. Just not sure if they won't allow it because of the 'special event'.

    Absolutely, do it all the time. There might be a Special event parking $50.00 SIGN when u pull in. IGNORE IT don't let it scare you. Print your voucher near the skywalk, before you leave.
    Park in the right or north side of garage. Skywalk and elevator is in the northwest corner.
