Brunswick, Ohio: An Affable Cleveland Suburb

Brunswick is a warm, inviting city a little south of Cleveland that I chose to move to in order to be closer to family in the area. While the city and its residents have been very friendly, Brunswick is a bit lacking in attractions and has more of a small-town feel to it. I found an apartment that was surprisingly affordable, and it seems that the overall real estate market in the area is fairly cheap. However, the job market leaves a little to be desired and there isn't much in the way of colleges.

That being said, there's a good selection of public parks if you enjoy spending time outside. You'll definitely need your own vehicle to get around since the public buses seem to service just one area if the city. It's much easier with your own car. All-in-all, it's a nice city to live if you enjoy a quiet city and don't mind driving a little way to see other attractions.
