Brecksville is surrounded by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park which provides extraordinary outdoor activities. The towns is exceptionally well maintained and managed, and people take great pride in their homes. The schools rank high at the national level. The city is only 20 minutes to downtown Cleveland and all its attractions. Have lived in the San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco areas and Brecksville offers as much, if not more, than the best suburbs in those regions.
