A New Resident’s Guide to Living in Cleveland

Are you preparing to move to Cleveland? Many people assume Cleveland is a super large city.

In fact, it has a population of fewer than 390,000 people, falling outside the top 50 highest populated cities in the country.

Despite a moderate population, the city boasts a fantastic location, ripe with plenty of entertainment. Cleveland sits on beautiful Lake Erie, affording residents the opportunity for waterfront living.

Living in Cleveland means high octane sports games, watching megastars like LeBron James win NBA championships. Perhaps the best part about Cleveland is its trendy city lifestyle and affordable housing.

Still not convinced? Read on for a new resident’s guide to living in Cleveland.

Close to Lake Erie

Most Clevelanders live just a few miles from the shores of Lake Erie. A short drive is all it takes to experience the beauty of the Great Lakes.

Also, residents can enjoy boating, fishing, parasailing, and even swimming in the summer.

Cleveland Is a Great Sports City

Home to basketball legend LeBron James, Cleveland is one of the best sports cities in the nation. The Cavaliers are NBA champions and make deep playoff runs every year.

Just two seasons ago, the Cleveland Indians made an appearance in the World Series. And while the Browns are… the Browns, you still have plenty of opportunities to see a ticker-tape parade in the streets of Cleveland.


Typically, cities within miles of waterfront property have expensive housing price tags. We’re looking at you L.A. and Seattle.

But Cleveland is different. The median home price in Cleveland is under $150,000. Compare that to the median home price in New York City–$440,000, and you’ll see Cleveland residents get more bang for their buck.


In addition to affordability, Cleveland is a great city for walkers. Compared to the other cities, Cleveland is ranked 17th for most walkable.

Want to drive around town? No problem. The average commute is  24 minutes, making Cleveland the 6th best commuter city in the country.

Great Food and Drinks

A city isn’t a city without great food and cold drinks. In Cleveland, it’s beer. No one can resist the likes of Lake Erie Monster or Blackout Stout.

Need a sandwich to soak up that beer?

Hit up the West Side Market for fresh food you can’t get anywhere else or stop by the world famous Melt restaurant for an epic grilled cheese.

Living In Cleveland – Wrapping it Up

Cleveland is a place unlike any other. You can eat legendary food, take in a Cavs game, then stop by the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame on your way home.

It’s great for walkers and drivers alike and moving here won’t kill your wallet. So what are you waiting for? Contact us today, and we’ll help make your Northeastern Ohio dream a reality.
