The Beefcake of Suburban Cleveland

Cleveland is one of my favorite cities, with great museums, the best Thai restaurant in the U.S., and the best bath house outside of man's country, which has closed.  The only problem is, there are no hotels with parking lots downtown, so you have to stay in the suburbs.

They go on for miles and miles, nondescript bedroom towns named Mayfield Heights, Moreland Hills, Bedford Heights, Valley View, Oakwood, Middleburg Heights, North Ridgeville, and so on.

Depending on the direction I am going, I usually stay in Shaker Heights, Independence, or Chagrin Falls.

Shaker Heights has wide, curving streets and Horseshoe Lake Park for jogging, the Shaker Historical Museum, and the Little Gym of Shaker Heights, which is not exactly little -- a lot of local bodybuilders work out there.

Independence has beautiful jogging paths in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park,  some good restaurants, and the training camp for the Cleveland Cavaliers.  I'm not into basketball, but I'm into basketball players.

The waterfall in Chagrin Falls isn't very interesting, but it's a classic small town with lots of cute antique shops and a bookstore.

And Kenston High School, where it wouldn't hurt to take in a wrestling match.

Or two.
