I really like the home feel. It's out away from the city so you don't have to worry about traffic to much! The roads are very well taken care of, and I know the community as a whole takes very good care of the city.

Historic downtown is a quaint experience that has many shops and attractions. The area is very friendly and clean. Although there lacks nightlife for a 21 year old, it is a great town to begin a family. There are a variety of different cuisines around the area and plenty of options when it comes to shopping. I highly recommend.
Medina is situated in close proximity to Lake Erie, Akron, and Columbus. It is a very low-key middle class area. You'll find a family-friendly atmosphere with access to some of the best parks in the nation, including the Cleveland Metroparks. This is a quiet town, so don't expect any late night parties. If you're a party-er, you'll find plenty to do in a short 20-30 minute drive to Cleveland or Akron.
