The people here have always been kind and friendly. I have never felt unsafe walking anywhere by myself. Sometimes late at night, I would walk around my neighborhood with my two sisters.
There are a lot of conservative people here, but they have never made me feel judged for thinking differently than them.
Some of my friends complain that there is nothing to do here, but the restaurants are good. Other cities that have better stores or places to hang out, like Strongsville and Medina, are only twenty minutes away. With downtown Cleveland being half an hour away, you always have somewhere to go.
The school systems here are the best. The high school staff is especially special.

Brunswick is a very small city we don't have much of a city life nor things to do at night. This town is more kid and adult-friendly but definitely not teen-friendly and I would really like to see a change or more teen things. The city is pretty nice because it's safe and not a lot of major crimes and definitely a lot of kids. The city school is basic if most but they need improvement in the style of the way the principles and teachers help the students . Overall it isnt a terrible city just needs improvement.
Good community with excellent schools and resources. Nice place to live with low crime. There are a lot of fast food restaurants but a few really good local places as well. The library is excellent and there are a few local entertainment places that are fun, too. Mapleside is a great local place to visit. The roads need repairs but that is indicative of the region. Jobs are limited and real estate/rental properties are very pricey.
