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.
Cleveland is an average city to live in. The best things are the museums and different neighborhood and ethnic festivals in the summer. There are not a lot of employment opportunities though. It is hard to imagine coming back here to settle down after I graduate. My mom has been looking for a job for over 4 years! The employment picture is not geared to thinking ahead, in the future. That is a turn off to young people like myself. Having lived in DC and Atlanta, the social life, settings and diverse clubs is minimal. That is another turn off. Lot of things for families and young people (under 18).
