Have Wheels, Will Travel

Cleveland is the pendant in the necklace of the industrial cities that flank the U.S. side of Lake Erie. Buffalo sits to the far northeast, Toledo's to the west, and, the largest, Detroit, is roughly where the clasp would be. A sort of Silicon Valley of the mid-19th century, Cleveland is where iron and steelmaking came of age and the shipping and railroad industries grew and prospered. Driving a rental car around this area may give the driver and its passengers a sense of history repeating itself. If this seems too esoteric of a reason to rent a car, rent a car for a drive to Sandusky. Once there, catch a ferry to one of the Lake Erie Islands, where an excellent display Victorian architecture awaits. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Book a Rental Car To See All that You Can

It's happened: you've finally gotten a car rental in Cleveland, Ohio. Load the kids into the rental minivan and hand them your tablet to keep them entertained. You've herded them out of the hotel, and now it's time for a jaunt up Highway 20 to visit the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. If you've got some nice weather, don't forget to steer up Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and stop at Rockefeller Lagoon, where you can have a family picnic by the lake.

Drive Around Town

When you book a car rental, Cleveland opens up to you. You're no longer at the mercy of taxis, public transportation, or doting relatives; if you feel the need to worship Elvis at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, you can hop into your midsize and do just that.

Convenient Pick-Up

If you're picking up your rental car at Hopkins International Airport (CLE), a shuttle will take you from the main terminal to the off-site rental agency counters. Reserve a car in advance so you don't have to fumble through paperwork and vehicle selection right after landing; after all, you're all ready to load up your SUV and cruise over to Tinkers Creek State Park for some serious camping action.
