For 20 years, this hamlet's art galleries, studios and boutiques have been rolling out the red carpet for art lovers during its monthly Tremont ArtWalks. That the affair has survived so long is testament to the quantity and quality of creative folks who live and work in the area. Tremont is well regarded as the heart of Cleveland's thriving culinary scene -- it is, after all, where Michael Symon opened Lola. Fast on his heels came restaurants manned by notable chefs with names like Bruell, Whalen and Boccuzzi. Diverse yet cooperative, Tremont attracts residents by the handful thanks to walkable streets, community gardens, dog parks, and convivial coffee shops.
