I like that you have affordable housing with decent neighborhoods. There is plenty of jobs in cuyahoga especially for people in the medical industry. It is ok to rise your children depending the area, I must say it is alot of senseless violence throughout this city. The commute isnt bad and most neighborhoods have local transit stops on ever other corner. I personally love the downtown aspect of Cleveland, ohio there is so much to do. You have pizza restaurants, bar and grills, ice cream shops, clubs, bowling alley, movie theaters, boat rides, jet skies and so much more. The city has different housing programs for first time buyers and affordable rent for renters. The private school system is nice but some public schools offer programs such as early college. Which is great it gives students a chance to learn on a college level and to save on the courses financially.

Very clean, but school districts need to improve. Safety is mediocre. The hospitals are great! Good food too.
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.
