Cleveland is an amazing place to live! As a love of the arts and food, I have found it’s many restaurants and cultural institutions to be exciting places to spend my free time. The cost of living here is very reasonable however the amount of affordable quality housing is very limited. There is little investment in the near east side of the city beyond that of Cleveland Clinic’s ever expanding footprint. The job market is plentiful if your career is related to Health or Technology but other professionals might find it challenging to find more than entry level employment.

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!
