Bedford, Ohio: A Decent Place to Call Home

My family and I currently are living in Bedford, Ohio and so far, it has been a decent place to live. Our current concern is that the criminal activity just like Cleveland continues to increase, but the local police department is working to address the underlying issues. We just try to stay close to home at night.

We do enjoy the people that live here for the most part. Many are friendly. My children attend the local school district and are receiving an education that I would say is average. I do wish that they would upgrade the local middle school, as it seems out of date.

The best areas in Bedford, Ohio are the specialty stores located here. Spirit Apothecary is a great place to find some new calming smells for your home. If you enjoy arts and crafts, then you do need to visit Morgan Advanced Ceramics. There are also some great little local dining places. The best hamburgers in town can be found at Jack’s Tavern. If it is a good cup of coffee that you need, then check out Bedford Falls Café.
