good quality of living. Not much nightlife, as things close pretty early. Lots of family events. Very affordable. Safety had been very good until recently. Good private schools as well.

Nice quiet suburb of Cleveland located only minutes from the Cleveland Clinic main campus, Case Western Reserve's University Hospital main campus as well as all of Cleveland's many museums.
Living in my area is the best! Everyone is willing to help others or find someone that can help us. In my area eveything is so convenient if I need to go to a store or go to a restaurant its in walking distance. The school district is very rigorous the district challenges every student to apply themselves and work to their full potential.
