Cleveland (US) The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the centerpiece of the North Coast Harbor skyline. Cleveland grabbed headlines in the 1970s as a financially strapped, rust-belt town with one of its waterways on fire. Today it boasts not only a very clean Cuyahoga River, but a stunning revitalized downtown area as well.
