Shaker Square & Larchmere

This streetcar neighborhood has everything an urban resident could ask for. Food, drink, entertainment, shopping, public transport and even one of Northeast Ohio’s best farmers markets all are within a few tightly clustered blocks. Shaker Square, with light rail trains zipping right through the middle of it, is home to some of the area’s best restaurants, a movie theater and weekly (year-round) farm market. Around the corner, eclectic Larchmere Boulevard is dotted with one-of-a-kind retail, antiques shops and eateries.
