I have lived in Berea my entire life, and I love it here. It is a cute, quiet little family town. We always have so many activities and community events going on. Definitely recommend for families! Right next to the beautiful metro parks as well.
Review Berea
Berea is a quaint little suburb of Cleveland. I would also consider it a college town. Baldwin Wallace University takes up a good portion of this city. It takes about 20 minutes to get to downtown Cleveland when there is no traffic. It is a very safe area and the people are very kind, you can feel the sense of community. There are quite a few good, local restaurants. The metroparks are easily accessible and nice to adventure through on warm days. Overall I rate Berea, OH 4 out of 5 stars.
Berea is a terrific town that is home to Baldwin Wallace University. It has very beautiful area. Coe, Baldwin, and Wallace lakes are all near the Metroparks and are always beautiful to go look at if you are having a bad day. The triangle has many small, locally owned businesses such as Igloos and Boca Loca. Some of the streets could do with some pothole filling however they are not as bad as some other places. All in all, it is a terrific place to live so far in my experience.
