Hi my name is Jacquie and I’ve lived in the Cleveland area my entire life.
Among other things, I’m a proud not-so-stay-at-home-momma of two, a son and a daughter. I say “not-so-stay-at-home” because the kids and I are always on the go. Despite living in Cleveland my whole life, I love being a tourist in my own city. There is always so much to do and things are always changing here. That’s really what prompted me to start the blogs Hey Cleveland (heycle.wordpress.com) and Cleveland Kiddos (ClevelandKiddos.com).
My Cleveland blogs are somewhat new but they feature some of my favorite things to do in Cleveland as well as helping me get out there and learn more about my hometown. I also love helping promote local businesses as well as my favorite local charities.
Some of my favorite things to do in Cleveland include shopping at the West Side Market, looking for beach glass along the shores of Lake Erie, catching a show at Playhouse Square, listening to live music at one of the many great venues, eating at local restaurants and food trucks (thankfully my awesome kids aren’t picky eaters at all and love going on food adventures with me), Tribe games, and of course, visiting the Cleveland Zoo and musems.
I also love organizing field trips around Cleveland. Most recently I organized a group of 75 to tour Progressive Fields and also Lolly the Trolley.
I’m also a runner and love running 5k’s and half marathons around the city. I originally started using Twitter to connect with other Cleveland runners. I now do most of my tweeting about things to do in Cleveland with kids at @ClevelandKiddos but I keep my running tweets at @heycle. Yah, I’m a multi-tasking social networker like that!
I look forward to sharing my adventures around Cleveland at @InTheCle the week of August 4th.
