Cleveland, USA


I'm in Pursuit to visit all the Clevelands across this Great Nation!

On November 9th, 1974, at Mount Sinai Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, I gasped a breath of air for the first time.  Thank you mom & dad for creating me without any health issues!

Ironically, my dog Subo, a Samoyed, hooked up with a female Samoyed just a couple months earlier and she gave birth to their puppies on the very same day.  I made the newspaper that next day; The Sun Press.  I once had a copy of that article, but it was amongst the many priceless possessions that have been stolen from me over the years...

When I started my 1000 Hikes in 2010, it didn't dawn on me that the addiction of silly feats would spiral to other peculiar desires.  Thus, I aspire to visit all the cities/towns of Cleveland across the United States!  Cleveland is such a popular name.  After living there for 27 years, when I finally left, I began to feel even stronger for home.  I wasn't homesick - I was ready to adventure out!  However, I can't pass by the Cleveland National Forest in California, or even any random Cleveland Avenue, without feeling that special touch.  To keep it condensed though, if a state has a city or town with the same name as my home town, it is on my list to visit...

Click on the pictures below to view my experience.  I've organized this in order of population.  Any Cleveland listed in Red without a picture means that I have not been there, yet...

Perhaps the most exciting part of my Cleveland adventures is discovering their history and random awesome finds around them.  For example, Cleveland, Washington was formed by an old Cleveland, Ohio native.  He was so proud of his home town that he stuck his flag in the ground like the movie Far and Away and declared his land.  Wonder if they are Browns fan? <~sorry~>.  Cleveland, Washington holds a rodeo once a year, which is the oldest ongoing rodeo in that state.  

Cleveland, Oregon was an awesome find because we discovered an African Safari nearby.  We would never have found that if it hadn't been for Cleveland.  And the list goes on - but what about Cleveland, California?  From what I read, there was a post office here in the late 1860's, but the town has since vanished.  It was located somewhere in Humboldt County.  I tried researching it online, attempting to pin-point the exactly location, but so far - no can find!  I don't drive past this area much, more than 6 hours away from Ventura - so I am begging for your Help!  If anyone knows anything, please contact me at 805.701.6123.

Since beginning my pursuit of Cleveland, I have discovered many more towns, townships and villages with the same name.  I have already updated this page with some of them, but there is still more work to do.  I am Not including Counties named Cleveland - there needs to be some limitations.

Nowadays (2021), I don't blog much. In fact, this Thanksgiving Weekend is the first time I've posted and updated this blog in ~3 years.  Homework for next time...

  1. If I require anykind of anti-oxidant for my wellness back then I constantly attempt to see the canadian vitamin shop due to the fact that this is the location where you'll obtain natural anti-oxidants simply at a straightforward price. Once again from this location you can obtain natural antioxidant simply at straightforward expense.
