GE Nela Park Christmas Light Display 2015

Many of you may remember driving through the GE Nela Park campus on Noble Road in East Cleveland as a kid and being mesmerized by the amazing Christmas lighting display. While you haven't been able to drive through Nela Park for many years you can see the brilliant display along Noble Road. If you drive, be prepared for cars moving very slowly - and even stopping - as they ooh and aahh at the display. A better option is to pull into the Nela Park main road and park in one of the Visitor spots and walk along the display route.

It is another Cleveland treasure and should be visited in person. View some photos of the 2015 display to whet your appetite.

Sisters Under Sail - Women Sailors

Don't think that Tall Ships and sailing are just for the guys.

Dawn Santamaria and her all female crew, the only all-female crew of the Tall Ships, sail the tall ship Unicorn. Dawn saw the confidence and empowerment that her 4 daughters gained from sailing on the 110-foot tall ship so she created the program to help young women grow.
