Nothing seems to change much these days. Rain and snow and sleet, more rain and snow, biting winds, just basically crummy weather. Is there anything you can do about it over the next month or two? You bet. You'll find good conversation, some bargains, interesting seminars, and maybe even a summer trip to Canada or elsewhere for prime fishing and other activities at one of the upcoming outdoor shows.
Unquestionably, the largest in the state is the 72nd Annual Cleveland, Sport, Travel and Outdoor Show held each year at the I-X Center near the airport on the south end of Cleveland. It's easily reached from I-71N (just follow the signs), and this year will be held on Wednesday, March 18 through Sunday, March 22. As always, there'll be over 500 exhibits, plus demonstrations, an array of seminars on hunting and fishing by national experts, booths by Canadian hunting and fishing lodges, fishing tackle, knives, guns, Lake Erie guides, boats, and recreational vehicles.
