I have lived in Cuyahoga Falls for fifteen years now, and I love it! It is a beautiful suburb as it is near the Cuyahoga Valley national park, and it has the cuyahoga river. Also, the people in Cuyahoga Falls are extremely friendly and polite. With the addition of the new portage crossings, there is now new places to eat and plenty more to do in Cuyahoga Falls. There are plenty of good schools in Cuyahoga Falls as well. The school districts almost always rank in the excellent category. I love this place, and it will always be home for me!

As a millenial who has lived in many trendy cities, there are a lot of great things going for Cuyahoga Falls. It is simply undiscovered and has a branding issue that will change over time. Kent State is nearby and downtown Kent plus North Hill of Akron offer many ethnic restaurant options. Korean, authentic Chinese, Indian, Nepalese, even Uzbekistan. And downtown is being revitalized with new restaurants with great food. It was surprising to find that we could be foodies in Northeast Ohio. Entertainment is closeby in Cleveland or Blossom Music Center and Highand Square. Breweries are popping up and we are close to having 4 in the city. Housing is affordable compared to many other parts of the country. There are older fixer uppers that would go for 300k in Ohio City but are 150 to 200k here. I also enjoy the growing diversity and have been pleased to find Indian and Asian grocery stores. As for the outdoors, I often bike to Akron, Kent, or take the trail to Cuyahoo's National Park.
I've lived here for 12 years so far, and my first year was freshman year of high school.

The city has various events (different fairs) on it's riverfront, mostly during the summer, but there's some spring and fall activities as well. There is also a large number of parks nearby, including a national park. The city offers a public library and a gym, the Natatorium. (You pay if you want to use the gym), and utilities. It contains a mix of Ma and Pa stores/restaurants, in addition to chains, but is mostly chains.

Has a decent sized population,overall city size, and 2% city tax rate(low?). Is almost the stereotypical "middle class" suburbia , with all the conformity and blandness that goes with it. Little to no violent crime, but does have some robberies/burglaries and drugs.
