It has been a great place to grow up. Near Lake Erie, easy access to Downtown Cleveland or places like create lifelong memories such as Cedar Point or Kalahari Resorts. Also, home to the nation's greatest football team, Go Buckeyes!

I like that everything is a short commute time in Eastlake, grocery stores, restaurants and its not too long of a drive from Cleveland about a 25 minute commute or so. I just wish that our community was more of well, a community and that there are more things for young adults to do between the ages 17-20.
I'd like to see more developed businesses and less crime. I actually plan to move to another city in Lake County after I graduate and have a career. Overall, the city itself isn't that dangerous, just really run down.
