Cleveland’s Three Arcades – Revisited

One of my favorite places in Cleveland is The Arcade. Its impressive architecture and the overall expanse of the structure can take one’s breath away. Cleveland also has two other arcades that, while much smaller, can be fun places to visit, even if just to appreciate the spaces.

While visiting downtown Cleveland last week, I decided to not only stop at ”The Arcade” but to also visit Cleveland’s "other" arcades – the Euclid Arcade and the Colonial Arcade, now part of the “5th Street Arcades".)

The Arcade was opened in 1890 and placed on the Register of Historic Places in 1975. It spans between Euclid Avenue and Superior. These two streets are not level and it may be confusing if entering on Euclid at street level as the exit to Superior requires a trip down a stairway. It is a beautiful space any time of the year but is particularly stunning when decorated for Christmas and viewed at night.

Across the street and a short walk down are the Euclid Arcade and the Colonial Arcade. The Euclid Arcade was built in 1911 and the Colonial in 1898. These arcades provide a convenient cut-though between Euclid Avenue and Prospect Avenue.  The Colonial Arcade appears very straight but the Euclid has a slight curve to it.  These arcades were independent of one another until 2000, when a connector between both structures was added. They became the 5th Street Arcades, part of a project that also brought the hotel Marriott Residence Inn.

Here are photos of all three arcades; I encourage visitors to Cleveland to take the time to explore these wonderful spaces!
