Berea is a very welcoming community and the people are very friendly. It is a conservative town, but my neighbors are very nice. We have a very diverse community and the community continues to grow. Overall Berea is not a bad place to live.
We have an elementary, middle and high school. The public schools are pretty good and I have no complaints. There are a lot of school activities that my kids participate in including sports. The teachers and principles are very welcoming and my kids have made a lot of friends here. It's a pretty good place to raise kids.
Crime is not to bad here. I recommend taking the necessary precautions to protect yourself, but crime has increased as the population increased. The police are very active, friendly and responsive. Traffic in the area can be bad, so I recommend leaving early in the morning. We are located near a major interstate which makes it very easy to get to work.
