Let’s be honest, Cleveland: the end of summer is rapidly approaching. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t find every excuse you can to enjoy the remaining days we do have–and that includes soaking up some sun during your lunch breaks (if you work downtown), or making an impromptu daytime trip to Cleveland. Enjoy this list of lunch break things to do, one for each day of the week!
