All About

Living in Lakewood, OH

Apartment renters who are seeking an active and bustling alternative to downtown Cleveland may want to consider Lakewood.

Lakewood apartments give renters easy access to a number of outdoor parks and recreation areas, as well as the shores of Lake Erie. Commuters will find themselves just several miles from downtown Cleveland and with easy access to Interstate 90.

With a population above 50,000, Lakewood is a city in its own right, but facilities such as Lakewood Park and the nearby Big and Little Met golf courses will provide ample outdoor recreation opportunities to renters. A Lakewood apartment also provides easy access to the landmarks of Cleveland and to ample resources of Lakewood itself.

For example, Lakewood is home to an award-winning public library as well as the Beck Center for the Arts, which is one of the largest cultural centers in Northeastern Ohio. The venue features a number of different events that will appeal to residents of all ages.

City officials will also be quick to boast that Lakewood was named among the nation's "coolest suburbs worth a visit" by Travel and Leisure magazine in the summer of 2010. This was due in large measure to the city's nightlife and dining options.

Those who rent a Lakewood apartment may also want to check out local landmark Malley's Chocolates, as well as some of the art galleries and other businesses and night spots that can be found in the downtown area.
