Avon is a West-Side suburb of Cleveland that is undergoing a period of rapid growth. The city boasts most of the amenities that families could want in terms of shopping and restaurants. The local school system features strong academics and athletics. Avon's unchecked residential and commercial expansion could prove to be a negative, as traffic is already quite bad. Diversity is almost nonexistent.

Avon is home to good schools and safe neighborhoods. However, it is extremely lacking in diversity. Youth sports programs are available but could use improvements in organization and coaching. Many residents are commuters to downtown Cleveland. The distance from the city and the lake is good, but the traffic getting on the highway is very congested, especially with new stores opening near the entrance ramp.
Avon has changed my life. Their is such a strong sense of community. My neighbors have become my best friends and have helped me grow into the strong high school student I am today. Avon has extremely clean facilities. The city's public school is beautiful and the track, baseball and football fields, and tennis courts are just as nice. Avon is extremely safe. I know I am always protected in this city because everywhere I turn, there is a police car, ambulance, or even hospital in case of an emergency. Restaurants, grocery stores, nail salons, studios, hair salons, and other boutiques and clothing stores are on every corner. There is never a dull moment in Avon. With the city pool, neighborhood pools, parks, baseball and soccer fields, hiking trails and playgrounds, there is always something to look forward to.
