Lots to do and there is something for everyone! Lots of clubs for involvement for adults and teens. Recreational center has an abundance of sports, programs, camps, etc.
Quality education in all the schools- as evident by Niche and countless ratings, Solon education is one of the highest in not only Ohio, but in the United States.

Solon has a top ranked school district with great staff. The music program is phenomenal! The city has lots of activities available for all ages. The recreation center, library, and stores are all common and nice places to hang out or meet up with friends.
Solon is a very small but large city. The schools are all very close and I think moving from such a close city would make it seem as if there is no differnece but there is. I moved from Twinsburg which means it is only about a 15-20 minute drive, nonetheless there is a huge diffrence. Solon could use a greater amount of restaurants but the ones they do have are very good and interesting to try.
