Beachwood Reviews

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!
Review Beachwood
The streets are always clean, the police are always patrolling. It is such a safe, happy, and welcoming city to live in! I will not live anywhere else.
Beachwood is a very culturally diverse and multi-ethnic community, even while being predominantly Jewish. Places like the Beachwood Mall, La Place, West & East Parks, etc etc add to the ultimate suburban lifestyle.
