On Our Way Home ~The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ~A Music Lover’s Vacation Destination

 

When planning our trip home, Hubby made sure
our route took us through Cleveland, Ohio, and
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

As promised, here are some of the photos we took on that stop.

We purchased our tickets on their website,
selecting a window of time for our arrival.
We allowed sufficient time for possible traffic, parking, and walking.
It was easy access from the Ohio Turnpike with a convenient parking lot,
so we enjoyed our extra time out on the grounds.

It felt good to get out of the hot sun
and into the AC. One needs to pause and
take in this impressive lobby with
a refreshment from the concession stand.

You perhaps noticed there are 5 Levels?
Actually, it’s 6. Visitors are directed to start downstairs,
on the Zero Level. One needs to allow plenty
of time to take in all of the history on display there.

I’ll share just a few of our photos.
Who else remembers watching the Ed Sullivan Show,
when the Beatles performed there for the very first time?

Elvis Presley, The King of Rock and Roll.

A large display is devoted to his influence on music.

Michael Jackson’s display wouldn’t be complete
without his famous glove.

Likewise, Prince and his famous guitar.

The Doobie Brothers Concert was perhaps the
the first live concert I attended in the 70s.

Cher, The Goddess of Pop.
In addition to her powerful voice, her fashions are quite impressive.

It’s no secret that I’m in love with Bon Jovi.

However, my favorite was this section.
The Supper Bowl Halftime Show…The Biggest Show on Turf.
The videos and photos were dedicated to the 55 Years
of dynamic Super Bowl Half Time Concerts.

Whether you are a Football Fan, or not,
you have probably stopped what you are doing to watch this event.
We all remember watching Prince play Purple Rain in
the Pouring Rain, on that famous Guitar.

We could not resist the temptation to take a selfie
with this backdrop from The Weekend’s 2021 Halftime Show.

Our visit to the National Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was a
highlight of our trip home…certainly time well spent.

We recommend it.
In fact, we suggest planning your next road trip
through Ohio to include Cleveland.

Take care,
~Natalie
