Navy pier and it's wheel are great.
Shame the crime rate involving tourists is so high their.
Black street gangs don't just stay on the south side to cause problems.

IMO, the Giant Ferris Wheel at Knoebel's Amusement Resort in Elysburg, PA. should've been in this slide show.

Amazing Ferris wheels.  As far as Ohio goes, there's always Cedar Point's giant Ferris wheel, as well as the large Ferris wheel inside the I-X Center, just south of Cleveland Hopkins airport...that one also sticks out of the I-X Center's roof, allowing you to see planes flying in and out of Hopkins.  The I-X Indoor Amusement Park is going on now as well, a good chance to experience the I-X's indoor Ferris wheel..probably the largest indoor one.

The Seattle's waterfront is a dump and destined to stay that way. Somehow they want to compare it to Portland.
