I have lived in Lyndhurst all of my life (except for college) and I would not want to call another place my home. We live right around the corner from my grade school so we walked every day to school. This was common for many families that we are still friends with to this day. There is always a great community feel about this city because of everyone living so close to each other and the affordiability. While this is a great community for families, there is not much to do for young adults. The night life is barely existent and you have to drive almost 15 minutes to find some place that has this. The job market is also not the best. Most people commute outside of the suburb and into the city or other popular work areas. Overall, Lyndhurst is a great suburb to live in. In the future, I would love to raise a family here just like my parents did with me and my two siblings.

Lyndhurst is an exciting commutiy that is unfortunately weighed down by a poor public school system. Attractions like Legacy Village and Lyndhurst Public pool, along with public events like Homdays offer a special draw to those looking to move. Cleveland Clinic and the copanies found in Legacy Village offer great job opportunites, and the housing market is diverse and reasonable.
I was born and raised here, and have lived here all my life. It has been a very good area for my family, close to shopping, restaurants, medical facilities including the famous Cleveland Clinic. Freeways are close, but our neighborhood is quiet at night. We are also close to several major colleges and universities. We are also about a 20 minute drive to downtown Cleveland, with great sports arenas and night life.
