I was living in Rocky River, Ohio for three months, and it wasn’t enough time for me. The best area in Rocky River is in the Metroparks. My favorite thing to do was to take my dogs on walks in the miles of trails to enjoy. There is also a dog park a couple miles away in Lakewood. After a long day of walking on the trails, we loved to go to Rosso Gelato and enjoy a big cup of chocolate gelato.
There is a lot to do in Rocky River, and nearby Lakewood. There is a large variety of bars and restaurants in the area to indulge in. There are many small shops in Rocky River, as well as the typical chains that you would expect from a metropolitan city. Rocky River benefits from being so close to Lakewood, but with a slightly lower rent. The only downfall is if you are working in Cleveland, the commute is very slow.
