I love Hudson as a hometown! Though it does lack diversity and could benefit from a wider, more open worldview, plenty of residents are individuals who seek this same thing. Its school system is also phenomenal, and prepares students to face the world with a solid academic background.

It is a predominantly white with asians as the next biggest ethnicity due to a private school, Western Reserve Academy, campus in the city. Still, I would say probably 87+% of the people here are white. The public school system has its flaws, I mean, I've never heard of one that is immaculate but I digress. They have some GREAT teachers and some...not-so-great-teachers-that-tell-you-they're-only-there-for-the-money-and-they-hate-teaching. Hudson is the safest town in Ohio and one of the safest nationwide. They have good public parks that are kept clean and beautiful. There is always construction during the summer somewhere on the roads as the city is always trying to improve. There is also a farmers market during the summer saturdays along with evening music on friday and saturdays. It is about an hour commute to cleveland and 15-30 minute commute to Kent
Hudson is a safe and quaint suburb of Cleveland. Within 45 minutes of the city, Hudson is a perfect location to any activity. The city provides many amenities. Although the taxes are higher than average, all the money is put back into the city. Their downtown-area is gorgeous with brick roads and colonial buildings. Overall, Hudson is a perfect community to start a family.
