Medina County Reviews

There are many things I like about Medina County, like the school's safety and business addition. In Brunswick, they added more restaurant-type companies which are nice to eat close to home. However, you could also go next door to Medina or Strongsville which have great options, too, for businesses, restaurants and stores. Hinkley Metroparks is a great place to walk, ride your bicycle, or even ride your horse! There is also a place to go swimming and a place to go boating in the summer. Lastly, there many more things in Medina County that you should take a look at for yourself.

Medina square is a great place for shopping, and they have almost every essential for a town to have. Coffee shops, a bakery, pizzerias, a hardware store, a few oddity stores i.e (like one that deals only in popcorn), a barber shop, a pub, and the all important library are all within a very reasonable walking distant. However, shopping is about the only thing that Medina has to offer in terms of activity and fun. There is stuff to do, like an indoor go-kart track, but those are few between. It has essential zero nightlife unless you count the bars and people watching at Walmart, and the town almost shuts down after 8 o' clock. This maybe by design, as Medina seems to be more of a mature adult/ family orientated place. There are at least a dozen parks within driving distant ( twenty four in the county), and the library hosts community and family events near weekly
I love Medina! I like all the little shops up on the square, although the traffic could be better. It does it back up during dinner time. The main road of Route 3/42 is perfect because it takes you directly through town, so you can stop at Walmart in the north side then cruise on down south to Handel's ice cream about ten minutes away if not less!
