Exciting yet intimate, Cleveland is a mid-sized city that boomed in the early 20th century and is experiencing a renaissance that began with sports venues downtown and continues with revitalized historical neighborhoods on the west side and a burgeoning corridor between the city's center and the east side..
Ranked as one of the country's most livable cities, Cleveland gets high marks for thriving healthcare and biotechnology industries, the lively arts scene, cost of living and four-seasons climate, not to mention a wealth of natural resources. Lake Erie and the "Emerald Necklace", a system of nature preserves, comprise Cleveland's big backyard and make for optimal outdoor living. The Cleveland Metroparks feature miles of running and hiking trails, bridle paths, ball fields and nature centers. The parks dot and span much of Northeast Ohio, so a trip from the city to nature is only a few minutes away.
