We moved to Bay Village because of their amazing school district, but the sense of community and safety have made us fall in love with our little town. It’s wonderful living in a town that is so family friendly! The only downside is that it’s not exactly a cheap place to live. Real estate is expensive and offers beautiful lakeside home, but there is also smaller, ranch style homes for the low income families. Due to the lack of businesses in Bay Village, the property taxes are some of the highest in the county. With that being said, it is by far worth the expense to live in such a beautiful, happy, safe community. There’s no way else I would want to live!

Bay Village is unique in many ways. As a "beach" community on a great lake, it offers views and greenspace very few lake communities have as a close (15-20 minutes to downtown) suburb. Very family oriented which is enhanced due to its excellent public school system. Top notch academics and always competitive sports teams, it is amazing the consistency of excellence. From multi-million dollar homes on the lake, to more affordable bungalows on the older east side of town (limited rental opportunities), Bay has become more socio-economically diverse than the 20th century and continues to be a very desirable address. Higher taxes are due to no commercial real estate other than suburban retail amenities. You get what you pay for…a fantastic way of life.
Bay Village is a small, family-friendly community located on Lake Erie. Bay Village prides itself on its K-12 public education system. With an average of 200 kids per grade level, the student to staff ratio is impressively low. In addition to the school system, Bay Village is known for its multiple scenic parks. Huntington Park offeres a modest stretch of beautiful beach. The Bay Village Parks and Recreation Center makes good use of Bay Village's many parks, providing families and children plenty of oportunities for recreational sports and events, family movie nights and summer time swimming fun!
