Richfield, Ohio is a small semi-rural community that lies between Cleveland and Akron. It has a small-town feel, but has easy access to anywhere since it is a "hub" of the local highways.

It's Ohio; we can have all four seasons in one week. For example, this week, it was 35 degrees F on Monday (with some snow), today (Tuesday) it was extremely sunny and 45 degrees, and tomorrow (Wednesday) it is a high of 65 with scattered thunderstorms. This is a small price to pay in comparison to the drought problems, earthquakes, and wildfires in California or hurricanes along the Gulf of Mexico. While the weather doesn't keep us on our toes, and we get a great deal of snow, I feel much better living here than I would somewhere else.
We have the normal Chili's, Applebees, Steak and Shake, Chick-fil-a, McDonalds, and Taco Bell. These restraunts are very family-oriented, however, which leaves little areas for teens to hang out or grab a bite to eat. While there are a few good bars in the area too, most are geared toward people in their 20s-30s. The only real "teen" places in the area are Panera and Starbucks.
