The second Friday of every month is a special day in Tremont, a neighborhood just south of downtown. That's when locals and visitors gear up for the Tremont ArtWalk, one of the oldest such events in town. For almost 20 years, this hamlet's art galleries, studios and boutiques have been rolling out the monthly red carpet for curious art lovers. That the affair has survived so long is testament to the quantity and quality of creative folks who live and work in the area.

Tremont is well regarded as the culinary heart of Cleveland's thriving dining scene. It is, after all, where Michael Symon opened Lola, his first restaurant. Fast on his heels were scores of other trendy bars, restaurants and lounges, manned by notable chefs with names like Bruell, Whalen and Boccuzzi.

While many budget-conscious homeowners have been priced out of Tremont, a compact neighborhood with little room to expand, reasonably priced rentals are always available. Diverse yet cooperative, Tremont attracts residents by the handful thanks to walkable streets, community gardens, dog parks, and convivial coffee shops. If the street names -- Professor, Literary, College -- sound a bit bookish, it's because they are holdovers from a short-lived university that existed here in the mid-19th century.

Tremont Features

putting art at the heart of neighborhood redevelopment

Artists are often the first to move into urban neighborhoods, and also the first to move out when rents escalate. Yet in the post-recession landscape, many communities are working with artists to transform blight, engage residents and reimagine their neighborhoods.

from bust to boom: how the city's brand is on the rise, within our borders and beyond

There has been a flood of new businesses that tout the city through an assortment of Cleveland-themed apparel and products or by integrating the city name right into the company’s branding. Many point to the recent recession as the dawn of this entrepreneurial movement, which coincided with a newfound pride of place.

now schooling: cooking up a solution to the growing culinary talent gap

As our restaurant scene continues to thrive, local chefs and owners increasingly are finding it difficult to fill all open positions. Institutions in town, including an accredited culinary school, have their merits, say local restaurateurs, but they also have a way to go before they reach the point where they'll plug the culinary talent gap.  

rediscovering your hometown? there's an app for that

Sometimes, even the most adventurous resident can grow a little too comfortable living in the same city after a while. But one can always find something new to discover if we just dig a little deeper. Lucky for us, a number of smartphone apps will help the explorer in all of us get reacquainted with the city we call home.
