Avon Lake Reviews

39 reviews
All Categories
Avon Lake is a wonderful place to live. The school system is amazing. The city has won a Tree City title in the past. Close to Downtown Cleveland, and easy to access all the sports venues in minutes, including the winning Cleveland Cavaliers. Located on the shore of Lake Erie, Avon Lake is an idyllic place to live and raise a family. With many different housing options. From huge palatial homes on the lake to affordable homes, apartments and condominiums. Avon Lake is also in Lorain County and therefore, the cost of living is a big selling point. Avon Lake is the choice suburb on Cleveland's westside.
I grew up in Avon Lake and I moved away to go to college. The best things about Avon Lake are the school system, the library, and the Lake. Avon Lake has the best schools in Ohio and are top rated. I went through those schools and they prepared me really well for college. The library is filled with so many great books and they keep up with all the latest movies and books. It's also a really kid friendly place (I worked at the library as a student page so that might be why I'm biased). The Lake is always a great place to visit, especially during the summer. If you find the right "beach" area you can see Cleveland from it and that's a really cool view. The disadvantages of Avon Lake are that not much happens in Avon Lake, since it is a small town. Also there isn't much of a nightlife and very little diversity.
Avon Lake, Ohio is a very modern suburban town. It is very pleasant and quiet with almost no crime at all. The city's public schools are top in the state and the overall quality of life is very admirable. The only downsides to this city is that it is predominantly white. Also, there isn't much to do in the city itself but the neighboring cities host lots of entertainment. Downtown Cleveland is also a 20 minute drive making the city very reachable.
