Cleveland Heights

Considering that most people choose to live close to their place of employment, it makes perfect sense that Cleveland Heights continues to thrive. Situated "up the hill" from University Circle, one of the largest employment centers in Northeast Ohio, Cleveland Heights is a hop, skip and jump for those who work in the area. That arts-minded populace fuels multiple artistic disciplines, including galleries, performing arts and live music venues. This near-east neighborhood dishes up fat slices of the American Dream, with beautiful old homes on tree-lined streets within close proximity to thriving commercial strips, parks, schools, libraries and public transportation.
