Terrific public schools, city services, Police & Fire Departments. Home values have recovered & surpassed the 2008 crash. Very diverse residents and inclusive community. Love it in Beachwood!

Beachwood is a great place with great people, but the weather is absolutely AWFUL. The thunder and snow storms are so harsh, and don’t even get me started on the humidity and the cold. I checked the grade for the weather, and quite frankly, I and plenty of others think it should be an F. Alas, the weather does not define Beachwood THAT much, the education is fantastic, and so are the people. We could do better on the traffic, it’s horrendous during Christmas time.
I moved from from Los Angeles to Cleveland at the age of six. My only memory of moving is hugging our cute house goodbye. Los Angeles was much "cooler" than Cleveland in the eyes of an eight-year-old. My mom knew she was sick and wanted me to grow up in a smaller community. When she passed away the community got together and planted a tree in memory of my mom.
When it was time to go to college I wanted to leave Ohio and went to the University of Arizona. I loved the idea of starting fresh and being away from the cold Cleveland weather.
Now that I am about to turn 24 I look back on my childhood and smile. It is hard to appreciate decisions parents make as a child. I was upset about growing up in Cleveland but now that I am old enough to understand why my mom decided to move I feel grateful.
Cleveland is a place filled with caring and supportive people that are there to help others in need. The only thing I would change about Cleveland is the bitter, cold winters!
