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.
Review University Heights
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.
The community in which I live is a tight-knit community. Everyone tries to act friendly by saying 'hello' in passing or stopping to have a conversation with neighbors. Many people own pets and enjoy seeing pet owners walking dogs. Often, the younger children get excited to pet the dogs and say hello to neighbors. Most everyone offers friendly remarks to new members of the community.
