CircleTrek Walking Tour of Cleveland's University Circle

A year ago, we were invited via Twitter to go on the final CircleTrek Walking Tour of University Circle (@InTheCircle - #CircleTrek) for 2015. We really wanted to go, but unfortunately we had a conflict.

We have been very busy in 2016, and it feels like suddenly it is one year later. Luckily, we saw a tweet announcing the "...final FREE #CircleTrek guided walking tour of the season," and Julie signed us up to attend!

Announcement about final CircleTrek Walking Tour of 2016
Surprise! We are going to University Circle's CircleTrek Walking Tour!

FREE Guided Walking Tours of University Circle!

Explore the past, present, and future of historic, picturesque University Circle. The tours will cover 16 stops over approximately 2 miles, beginning at the Wade Oval Information Center and ending at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tours are FREE, thanks to the support from Motorcars in Cleveland Heights.

- This is the final walking tour of the season!

- Departing at 10:30 a.m, from the Wade Oval Information Center (10820 East Boulevard)

It was a brisk morning on Saturday, October 22, 2016, when we found ourselves with a group of other people interested in learning about our city's University Circle. We were told that this last tour of the year was quite like the first one back in May -- a cool, crisp morning -- but unlike in May, many more people were gathered for this final tour. The tours are free, thanks to the support from Motorcars in Cleveland Heights (@motorcarscle).

Our tweets below show our photos from the day as we made our morning journey around University Circle and Uptown Cleveland (@UptownCle). They continue on to show how Stuart spent his afternoon at the Cleveland Museum of Art (@ClevelandArt). The videos in the tweets about the Cleveland Museum of Art's new Studio Play (very exciting new area) and Centennial Celebration, were so impressive that we decided to also feature them here:

Family Connections

As we were on the tour, we kept finding personal and family connections. This made the tour more interesting to us, as we personally related to the history and current developments of Cleveland's University Circle.

Tweets & Retweets

Here are our 56 @sos_jr tweets and retweets relating to University Circle's CircleTrek Walking Tour and the Cleveland Museum of Art. Be sure to see information about the exciting happenings at the art museum.

We have also included some fun with University Circle while the Cleveland Indians were in the World Series!

Please share any photos or information that you find interesting by retweeting.

Before going on the tour, we learned about the new @ClevelandArt #StudioPlay. Be sure to watch the video.

Since we only saw #CMAKaraWalker briefly the day before it opened, Stuart decided to see it again after the CircleTrek tour.

We shared the next two tweets as we learned about the Cleveland connection to Life Savers candy.

Lunch and visit to @ClevelandArt after #CircleTrek guided walking tour 2016

Be sure to watch the Cleveland Museum of Art's Celebrating 100 Years of CMA video that is in the next tweet:

The day after the tour, we saw the tweet of Cuyahoga Arts & Culture CEO of Karen Gahl-Mills (@KarenGahlMills - @CuyArtsC) sharing Steven Litt's (@steven_litt) article about the Cleveland Museum of Art's (@ClevelandArt) event.

18 blog posts about University Circle

After the tour, Stuart created a "University Circle" tag for our blog. We discovered that we have written 18 blog posts about University Circle (@InTheCircle).

Fun with University Circle (@InTheCircle) during the World Series!

Fun at @ClevelandDotCom Corner Alley TweetUp

Here is the blog post we wrote about going to Uptown Cleveland (@UptownCle) for the the opening of Corner Alley Uptown (@CornerAlleyUC) and for the Cleveland.com (@ClevelandDotCom) TweetUp.

"Take a Hike" - Cleveland's Flats & Beyond!

Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation's (@GatewayCLE) "Take A Hike" Cleveland tours are similar to the University Circle's CircleTrek Walking Tours, and we highly recommend them.

We are luckly to have so many things happening in Cleveland. The University Circle's CircleTrek Walking Tours are a great way to learn the area's past and present.
