It’s summer, Bits and Bramblers. And you know what goes good with summer? Road Trips. Climbing in the car, rolling down the windows (or cranking up the AC,) stopping for snacks, and then driving someplace awesome. And you know the cool thing about Ohio? There are lots of awesome road trip destinations. For the day. A day trip. Day Road Trip. Whatever.
Aaaaaaaaanyway, this week we’ll talk about one of my all-time favorite places in Ohio…The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Thaaaat’s right, one short drive up to Cleveland, and you can see and hear rock music at it’s finest.
Did you know that the museum officially opened to the public on September 2, 1995, and was followed by a giant concert which included performances by artists like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Johnny Cash? And did you know that admission/membership prices and store purchases raise money to educate the world about music? And did I mention you can see amazing things, like John Lennon’s leather jacket, and Janis Joplin’s car with the psychedelic paint job? And did I mention how incredibly awesome the whole thing is?!
So head to your faaaavorite library and check out some good music, then head up to the lake and visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum!
