I would love for Cleveland to continally to progressing in more urban areas. Downtown area needs more hotels, because of the growing venture of local business, for I like! I'm hometown kid from the urban area of Cleveland, that moved to the suburbs from better enocomic reasons, and experience luxury middle class living? I witness the the growth of urban demographic areas in Cleveland, over the past last 10 years and especially seeing growth in downtown area. It's honor to say im from Cleveland, where dreams do come true!

what I like best about Cleveland is the sportsmanship that the people have across the city. People here in Cleveland seem to always come together when it's time for any sporting event. They truly are die-hard fans. Cleveland also has some of the most beautiful Metro parks I have ever seen! The lakes and the scenery here are most astounding! Even the winters which are very cold made for the best Christmas scenery. I have lived in Cleveland for the past 9 years and have had many great things happen for me here. I obtained my degree, met and married the man of my dreams, and am now working in a place that I love. Yes, I truly would recommend Cleveland to all who are looking to a great place to stay!
Cleveland is a historic city that has been rough around the edges since The Great Depression. However, the Cleveland is on the uprise with huge makeovers (I.e. Uptown, Cleveland Clinic Main Campus, Cleveland state University, and Playhouse Square etc). These makeovers give Cleveland a unique appeal. This appeal comes from the balance between newly renovated buildings and historic buildings. Cleveland inspires all generations to live near their amazing day and night events. Additionally, they have diverse ethnic groups that both visit and reside their. Making Cleveland a memorial city!
