About Cleveland

Considered a port city, Cleveland is located in northeastern Ohio, along the southern shore of Lake Erie, at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River. Lake Erie moderates the climate in the region and generally keeps the city cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, while sometimes generating heavy “lake-effect” snow. Warm summers offer plenty of opportunity to spend time on the beaches or the lake, as well as biking or hiking. Winter activities include ice-skating, sledding, and riding toboggan chutes. In addition to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, top Cleveland attractions include visiting the Cleveland Metroparks nature reserve system (dubbed “The Forest City”), Cleveland Museum of Art, West Side Market, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, Edgewater Park, Cleveland Botanical Gardens, or watching a Guardians MLB baseball game at Progressive Field or a Browns NFL football game at FirstEnergy Stadium. Visitors can also tour the restored William G. Mather steamship through the Great Lakes Science Center. The area offers many unique restaurants and pubs, including Merwin’s Wharf, where guests can make reservations to dine in an igloo. Cleveland Metropolitan School District is the second largest in the state. Covering 79 square miles, the district offers 68 schools for K-8 grades and 39 high schools. The district has a matriculation rate of 80.1 percent, claiming the fastest growing graduation rate in the state. Housing in Cleveland offers a mix of historic Greek revival architecture, as well as Colonial and craftsman/bungalows. It also features many modern suburban homes. Remote workers can take advantage of a number of co-working spaces in Cleveland, including CLEworx, CUBE Workspace, Limelight, and Spaces & Co. They offer a variety of packages, including full-time, part-time, private, and shared workspaces. Cuyahoga Valley National Park is situated within 30 minutes of Cleveland, and Akron is a short 45-minute drive from The Forest City. Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is the area’s largest airport and offers 156 daily non-stop departures. One of the nation’s top 50 busiest airports, CLE also offers flights to international destinations, including Canada, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Jamaica.

FUN FACT


Many consider Cleveland to be the “Birthplace of Rock ‘N Roll,” since its home to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. However, Cleveland’s rock and roll history actually began in 1952, when the first major rock concert was held at the Cleveland Arena.
