Cleveland Car Insurance: What You Need to Know
Cleveland has a rich history and has also undergone a great renaissance in recent years, making it a Midwest jewel on the shores of Lake Erie. But while the lake is beautiful to admire, it also brings snow in the winter which can be treacherous for drivers. That′s why if you live in C-Town, it′s important to have the right auto insurance to protect you and your vehicle. GEICO works hard to offer great car insurance rates in the greater Cleveland area, so get your free Cleveland auto insurance quote today.
Navigating Your Way Around Cleveland
Cleveland has less traffic congestion than most major cities, so driving around the city is easy. Downtown streets are wide with clearly-posted signs and very few one-way streets—that make navigation a breeze. The streets running north and south are numbered and are labeled either “east” or “west” depending on where they are relative to Ontario St., which also runs north and south. The major streets running east and west are generally avenues.
Drivers should note that the Cuyahoga River runs through the city, so many streets include a bridge to cross over the river. Interstate 90 crosses the center of the city and includes the infamous “Dead Man′s Curve” in the southwest part of town. Because of the road layout here, traffic congestion is a regular occurrence. Instead, many locals recommend bypassing I-90 via I-271 and I-480.
Other Transportation Options for Cleveland
Parking is cheap and plentiful, so many Clevelanders choose to drive their cars. In fact, some parking lots cost as little as $1 per day. For those choosing to use public transportation, the Cleveland RTA has an extensive network of buses and trolleys that offer discounted fares to local residents with ID. Cleveland Rapid Transit, known locally as The Rapid, operates three light rail lines covering much of the city.
Important Places in Cleveland
No rock music lover can resist a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1100 Rock and Roll Blvd.), which overlooks Lake Erie. If classical music is more your style, visit the world-famous Cleveland Orchestra in Severance Hall at 11001 Euclid Ave. in the Theatre District. Afterward, enjoy great food and nightlife in Cleveland′s Warehouse District, Ohio City or Tremont neighborhoods. And speaking of great food, Cleveland has its own Little Italy district off Mayfield Ave. on the east side of town.
