Cleveland County Reviews
If you love nature and being close to the mountains then Cleveland county is the place to live. Cleveland county has a strong history in bluegrass music and Kings mountain historical battleground is in Cleveland county. Cleveland county is home to moss lake as well as the broad river. You can also find Gardner Web University in this county.
If I could change something about Cleveland County it would be the amount of jobs available. All of the main jobs are about 30 minutes from my current residence. Cleveland County is considered small town living so competition is all over for the best jobs. We make do with the resources we have and try our hardest as a community.
I love it here but you also have to drive a good distance to get to work or per say the grocery store, which does make it hard on gas. I would still live here because the country life is very enjoyable. In the future for this area, I possibly see another lake in formation because of the fishing and swimming everyone is fond of.
