Where can I find a Cleveland suburb without the long commute to downtown?

The so-called “first-ring” suburbs of Cleveland are a diverse collection of communities that each have their own history and personality. These cities and villages offer a suburban lifestyle while keeping residents close to everything that downtown Cleveland has to offer.

To the east is Cleveland Heights, once home to John D. Rockefeller. The city features classic architecture, great shopping and restaurants, and a thriving arts scene. Here you’ll also find parks and recreation facilities, a lively downtown with award-winning restaurants, theaters and entertainment, and excellent schools.

To the south is the Village of Cuyahoga Heights, home to companies like Alcoa, ThyssenKrupp, St. Ives, and Millcraft Paper. The school system here is one of the highest-ranked in the state. The Village is committed to maintaining a high quality of life; local committees are devoted to environmental improvements and education, beautification, recreation, and more.

Apartments for rent in Cleveland range from studios to three-bedroom units. Rents are about average for the greater Cleveland and downtown area.
