Cleveland, Ohio is located on the shore of Lake Erie. Lake Erie is a very big influence on both Cleveland the city, and its people. The entire northern boundary of Cleveland is Lake Erie, and there are numerous beaches both in Cleveland proper, and the suburbs east and west of the city.
Cleveland is a midwestern city, full of friendly easy going people. It is one of the friendliest people that I have ever visited. Cleveland is a city full of wonderful restaurants, interesting ethnic pockets of the city, and a rich history. It is the northernmost city in Ohio, only a few hours away from Detroit, Michigan, and PIttsburgh Pennsylvania.
Cleveland boasts one of the world's best medical systems in Cleveland Clinic, and one of the county's best art museums, the Cleveland Museum of Art, as well as several excellent universities.
