Cleveland is a city with a lot of spirit. We have some of the most successful athletic teams in the nation and the overwhelming feeling of pride can be experienced on any street corner. Cleveland is really a city on the uprising. There are so many wonderful activities to fill your time with. We not only have amazing sports teams but also top of the world arts. The Cleveland Orchestra is renowned for their music and talent and the Cleveland Museum of Art has some of the largest collections out there. In my 18 years of living in Cleveland, I still have not done half the activities offered! This city is one that is alive with good times, camaraderie, excellent food, and life-time experiences.
Certain areas could use fixing up but the residents are pretty nice. Overall, it’s a pretty large city with a large, diverse population and several different suburbs. Downtown looks beautiful at night with the buildings lit up and the beaches are a great way to spend an afternoon. Lake Erie has some of the most incredible sunrises and sunsets. Some places can verge into kind of scary areas that you should avoid at night and crime is a pretty concerning factor in some areas. However, there always seems to be a pretty large police presence. Every season change paints the city in different, beautiful ways. There’s active participation in Cleveland’s major sports teams with some of the most devoted fans you will ever find. Despite some areas being lower income, there are bountiful job opportunities, some with fairly high compensation, at very reputable companies. The hospital systems are very well respected within and outside the community.
