Cleveland area 50 something looking to retire (hopefully) in 5-8 years (2011), looking for the right place, not too hot in the summer but away from the snow belt.

Cleveland has its blemishes Posted On: 1/9/2011 5:48:34 PM
Grew up in Cleveland, lived in Nashville, Louisville, and now in Cleveland suburb. Cleveland has crime & grime like most medium cities. Great areas just outside of city. Very good public transit, cultural venues, medical facilities. The people are mostly friendly, The folks that don't think we're friendly-well every town has snobs and idiots. Night life is very poor for younger set except on the weekends. Lots of winter activities (although I don't care for it). High taxes, especially where I live, but the housing stock is great and inexpensive, and oh yes, suburbs are great places to raise children, but not Cleveland proper. Hope this helps.

Shaker Heights is a very tight-knitted community just southeast of Cleveland. The community is very diverse, with many families from across the country and the world. With Cleveland close by, there is no shortage of cultural events to attend, although some dislike the lack of stable night life. High taxes make always place it low on many "best places" lists however.
