Broadview Heights Reviews
Review Broadview Heights
I love the semi-small close-knit city/suburb. Friendly and generous community with a strong emphasis on faith. Broadview Heights is one of the safest suburbs to live in the state of Ohio. The diverse community is one of kind, friendly individuals. Mainly democratic suburb. Great school district athletics with outstanding teachers with a passion for teaching and the students. Recently constructed two new hospitals (UH and Metro) and a bunch of eating establishments, air-go a decent job opportunity base.
Summers are very nice; usually sunny and warm with rain here and there. Fall is stereotypical with the chilly weather and crisp air. I prefer the fall because the trees are absolutely beautiful when the leaves starts to change colors. Winter is good for at least one big snow storm a year. There's usually snow all winter but there is always the one blizzard where the weather men predict 10 feet of snow and we end up with 6 inches, which guarantees a snow day almost every time! After the harsh snowy winter, it's nice to move in to a pleasant spring with flowers and the trees starting up again. Any form of natural disaster is very rare, we have occasional flooding, but noting severe. For winter, my essential wardrobe items are as follows: a big warm coat, gloves, hat, scarf, boots. There are not many items essential for the other seasons, except a bathing suit in summer to go swimming.
The most common crimes are traffic violations, petty theft, DUI's, and other drug-related issues, mostly with marijuana. Overall, I feel safe, but the drivers tend to be troublesome and in a rush; it's not the teenage drivers you need to watch out for, it's the older people living here who don't know what they're doing or where they're going. You also need to watch out for those who have had one too many to drink and middle-aged parents that are always running late, there's a tailgating problem here.
