Living in Cleveland


Welcome to Cleveland, a place you can have it all!

The Greater Cleveland area is home to over 2 million residents, making it the largest metropolitan and one of the most diverse areas in Ohio. Cleveland is certainly ranked one of the highest centers for science, education, and healthcare.

This family-friendly city by the lake, is filled with and surrounded by some of the most beautiful and affordable communities. The cost of living is lower than most cities of its size in the country. The phrase “culturally enriched” only begins to describe the rich life in the arts that exists here. We are home to the nationally renowned Cleveland orchestra, and the largest theatre district second only to New York. Cleveland hosts many museums including The Cleveland Museum of art, a new addition in the MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), and the Botanical Gardens - just to name a few!

Sports aficionados will not be disappointed here. Cleveland is home to the Cavaliers, a championship winning basketball team; the Cleveland Indians, our baseball team recently known for breaking the record for the longest winning streak; and the Lake Erie Monsters, a championship winning hockey team.

The City of Cleveland is also known for its parks and recreation; there are an array of activities for those who enjoy the outdoors. There are too many attractions to name in this place - you’ll just have to come and see. Cleveland, a place with countless opportunities, a place you can call home!
