Avon Lake Reviews

40 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.
Review Avon Lake
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 is an alright city. I graduated under an amazing staff (except the principle, they were a nightmare), partook in the marching band, and held a few jobs here. The people are generally pretty nice, with the exception of the rich snobs you get once in a while.
