Cleveland Hopkins International
One of the American Midwest's primary airports, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is the largest airport in Ohio. It serves roughly nine million passengers each year, mostly on domestic flights to cities like Chicago and Houston, and a few routes to Canada and Mexico.
The facility is fairly basic for an airport of its size, and passengers left unprepared may find themselves a bit bored in the terminal. However there are plenty of shopping and dining opportunities in the brand-new AIRMALL on Concourses B and C. A point of interest is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Gift Shop, selling memorabilia from the famous Cleveland landmark.
The airport is situated 10 miles (16km) southwest of Cleveland.
