Cleveland is a city in the state of Ohio and the county seat of Cuyahoga
County in the US. This lakeside city along Lake Erie lies about 60 miles
away from the Ohio-Pennsylvania state border. Though founded in 1796,
Cleveland first emerged on the world map in early 19th century
as the preferred place of American entrepreneur and the place to do
business because it had many canal ports and a railroad to power an
upcoming industrial centre. Fast forward to 2018 and you will find it a
popular waterfront venue for highly competitive sporting events and
world-class music concerts.
