I have grown up in Chesterland, Ohio and always loved it. There are so many wonderful things to appreciate that the list grows on. I have found living in a suburb that even through you are not close to the city and most of the time you need to drive to what you need to get too, there are other beauties to value when living somewhere like Chesterland, Ohio.

Getting too big. Wish there were more if a concerted effort to preserve green space, still there are still some pretty spots. The downtown area is an eyesore of poor planning and land use with several empty strip malls that have no ascetic value. It's location close to Cleveland is nice for the convenience, but unfortunately it has come with an influx of people who want live in the "country" only to realize the house they and their neighbors just built has taken the country away. Still there are some good places too. Guido's pizza is a county landmark and there is a few good places to find an apple if you need one. Like any area there is good and bad, good people and bad people. If you don't like snow, Chesterland probably is not a good choice but if you like a semi rural area with decent schools and close proximity to Cleveland, then it is not a bad area.
Chesterland is a quiet, safe suburb of Cleveland with a great school district, beautiful park system, and is only 30 min from downtown Cleveland. Most homes have nice backyards so you can have pets and it is a great place to raise a family.
