Living In Cleveland

Lynette recently left a comment on my blog because her family is relocating to Cleveland and she is wondering how I feel about living here.

Despite what my father would tell you, there are people that enjoy living here. He lives in Florida and visited recently for Baby’s first birthday. He complained to the ticket agent for Continental Airlines that it is more expensive to fly to Cleveland than it is for him to fly to Seattle. When he asked for an explanation of the cost, the ticket agent replied, “Who wants to go to Cleveland?”

Obviously, there are at least two people in this world that would not enjoy living in Cleveland, but there are plenty of reasons to love it here.

*Affordable housing
*Job opportunities
*Family friendly activities
*World-class healthcare
*Secondary education options
*Professional sports teams
*Moderate climate that changes during all four seasons

Since you’re all dying to know more about Cleveland, (stop snickering!) I’ll be sharing more about each of these topics in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned!

"Who wants to go to Cleveland?" HA1 I love it - that's funny! Thanks a lot for your first overview of the Cleveland area. I am looking forward to seeing what your thoughts are on the rest.

I just posted about our trip to Cleveland. http://adayinthelifeoftheordinary.blogspot.com/
