Just move to Willowick, there is a nice lake view park that is easy to get to also half hour from Cleveland which makes a easy commute to the big city. If for some reason the big city is no interest to you downtown Willoughby is right down the road where there is a good night life environment where you can find right place to wine and dine. The local school districts are all new buildings providing a good learning environment for students. Willowick is the place to be for families or for people enjoying single life.

Willowick is a great city to live in! There are plenty of parks, stores, and city sponsored activities going on, which is a huge benefit to the many young families that call Willowick home. One huge improvement I would like to see happen in Willowick is an elementary and middle school renovation. That would definitely put Willowick a step above the rest of the neighboring towns.
Willowick is a great city to live in. It is still a community, and that is hard to find these days. People still talk to their neighbors, and care about the parks. The city has many public parks, and two city pools. It is less the 25 minutes from Downtown Cleveland, and 20 minutes from Beachwood.
