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.
University Heights is close to many other city's because it is located near the highway. Downtown Cleveland is only 15 min away. There is a whole foods and a LA fitness and Planet fitness in the area. There are many clothing and department stores near by as well.
