Bay Village is unlike a lot of suburban communities in the western part of the Cleveland metro area in that it's a real town. Positives are great schools, low crime, a diverse mix of real estate, and home to The Huntington Metropark on Lake Erie that includes a beach, picnic pavilion, nature center and walking trails. A great place to own a home and raise a family. Easy access to downtown Cleveland, CLE airport. Negatives are higher than normal property taxes and scarcity of new construction housing.
