North Ridgeville, OH is close to Cleveland but has a lot to offer for a small city. I love the space and serenity of North Ridgeville. Living further from the city is great because the housing is cheaper and I have more yard space than when I lived in Cleveland.
We have a very nice quaint downtown area but there are not many places to shop, but there are shopping centers within a 15-minute drive. During the summer, we have a corn festival that my family usually enjoys. We also enjoy visiting the library because there are many different educational activities for kids. Most of the town festivals or events are held at the library.
The best thing about living in North Ridgeville is the peace and quiet. It is nice to escape the noise of the city and come home at night. I feel very safe in my city and the neighbors are very friendly. The schools are decent as well.
