The greater Cleveland area has quite a lot to offer! The truth is far different from the national perception, Cleveland is a fantastic place to live. Check out some of our favorite things below. Cleveland Rocks, and don't you forget it!

Living Large!

Greater Cleveland is super affordable compared to other major cities in America. If you're looking to move, Cleveland might just be the perfect place to relocate to! Be it Downtown, the nearby urban neighborhoods, or the suburbs, you'll find plenty of options to call home.

Food and Brews

Boasting a top 10 food scene in the nation, Cleveland is home to nationally renowned chefs Michael Symon and Jonathon Sawyer. Along with their flagship restaurants, there is an endless supply of great food downtown, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.

Cleveland Health Care

People come from all over the world to be treated at Cleveland hospitals. The Cleveland Clinic is in the top 4 hospitals in the nation, and nearby University Hospitals' Seidman Cancer Center is rated among the top 25 US cancer centers. University Hospitals' Rainbow Babies and Children's Hosptial is also among the top 10 children's hospitals.

Urban Neighborhoods

Just outside of Downtown, there are several trendy neighborhoods. With the reemergence of Cleveland as a destination to live, these neighborhoods have revitalized themselves as cultural hubs. Tremont, Ohio City, Gordon Square and Lakewood (among many others) offer a unique blend of old and new. With Downtown just minutes away, these remain their own vibrant, walkable communities.

Sports Teams Galore

We're the home of all three major professional sports teams (yes, the Browns are professionals), and have had appearances in both the NBA Finals and MLB World Series in the last year. Cleveland is also represented in the AHL, AFL, WFA, and the NPSL. Progressive Field has been chosen as the host of the 2019 MLB All-Star game, for a record-breaking 6th time!

The Cleveland Metroparks

Explore 18 reservations spanning more than 23,000 acres with more than 300 miles of trails, eight golf courses, eight lakefront parks and a nationally-acclaimed zoo. These beautiful parks offer recreation and nature education programs like hiking, mountain biking, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and so much more!

Music Scene

We pretty much invented Rock & Roll. We host multiple festivals throughout the year, and have iconic music venues like: Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica, Blossom Music Center, The Agora, Grog Shop on Coventry, and last but not least, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!

The Arts

Playhouse Square is the second largest theater district in the United States, and attracts more than one million guests per year to its 1,000+ annual events. The recently renovated Cleveland Museum of Art, which is free, houses a permanent collection of more than 45,000 works of art from around the world, and is over 100 years old. Cleveland is also home to the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, which plays locally in between its world tours.


Experience the joy of all four seasons! Actual. Seasons. One lasts a little longer than the others, but when you have patio season to look forward to, it's an easy sacrifice. (Or maybe you're one of those crazy people who actually enjoy the snow, come have fun!)

This is a non-exhaustive list. In the interest of not overwhelming you with the awesomeness of Cleveland, we have left many things off. For more museums, amusement parks (Cedar Point), citywide pride, diversity, and the sense of community Cleveland offers, you'll have to come see for yourself.
