I love Cleveland! It is a great small town that requires you to get out and explore in order to find its beauties. Cleveland has lots of local exhibits happening regularly, we also have forums where young adults are invited to participate in intellectual conversations. There are many times in the year when we have festivals to showcase local artwork and bands.

I am new in town and can already tell this community truly values music, particularly the blues! There are many odd shops and a cool bar in town. The local cops are nice and offer several free services. I heard it can be dangerous to stay far from town though.
Growing up in a small town like Cleveland has changed my outlook on life. When you are born into and raised in a small town, life can be both challenging and rewarding. The town of Cleveland has always been overlooked by the gigantic world we live in. What people do not know is the welcoming environment that Cleveland possesses. Although, from the outside the town is seemingly irrelevant; from the inside is a feeling of comfort no one could understand. What people do not know is that no matter the distance you travel through town, you see someone you know and you are always greeted with a smile. Cleveland is known for the historical landmarks such as Po Money's Lounge, the Blues Trail, and the Grammy Museum recently added. Cleveland has churches on every corner, cafés and restaurants with daily live music, fields of cotton and corn rows, but most importantly Cleveland is filled with comfort and an abundant source of happiness.
