Cuyahoga County Reviews

I love that the city offers many activities especially as it pertains to families. I have a three year old son and there are often times that I am able to find kid friendly places! I do however wish that it was more safe now as it was back when I was growing up. Cleveland is forever evolving and becoming more than just the city where Labron James is from, we have made a name for ourselves.

There is a ton of things to do in Cuyahoga county. Plenty of restaurants for family or young adults. Many school districts, private and catholic schools to choose from. It is family friendly and many unique areas to choose from and close to the city. Wonderful place to live!
I have lived in Cuyahoga county my entire life. You cannot find the sense of unity that this county has with one another. It is improving vastly, in its attempts to build the community to rival others. It has so many things that people can do and family's can do. It's a great place to be. Something I would change is getting rid of some of the rundown buildings and using that space to create more progress. It's a growing county and if you stay long enough you may never want to leave.
