I am a born and raised Cleveland Heights resident who has lived in San Francisco and Ann Arbor and travelled all over the world, only to happily land back home.

I love the urban suburb feeling, being able to walk to restaurants, Shaker Lakes, the farmers market, the excellent library, and tons of playgrounds for the kids.

Since it’s so close to University Circle and downtown, the Natural History Museum and Children’s museums are like other living rooms for my kids!

Our neighborhood is incredibly quiet and I’ve never really had to think twice about safety. We have great block parties so we really feel connected to our neighbors.

I value the independent businesses, the diversity of people (culturally, socio-economically, ethnically), the gorgeous houses, all the trees, and the ease of getting everything I need so close to home!

Having gone to the public schools and ending up at a top ten school for architecture, I know that the schools are great too.

Moved to Cle Hts about a year ago. Beautiful, historic homes, with very reasonable cost of living - property and RITA tax a bummer though. No safety concerns at all- very quiet at night. The perfect mix of suburban and urban - quiet, tree lined streets, with restaurants, coffee shops, nightlife within walking distance. Also good cultural opportunities - especially all the concerts in Cain Park during the summer. People are friendly - lots of people out walking - family-friendly! Love the diversity of the community and progressive vibe - moving from the East coast, I feel at home here.
I think that Cleveland Heights is a great city to live in! I was born and raised here and have always felt welcomed. The city has always been very diverse which is something that I love. We have places to eat, socialize and shop, but no major shopping mall (we have a strip mall) or restaurants.

We do have a wonderful library and schools and people are encouraged to get involved with the community which is always a good thing.
