As the unofficial capital of America’s north coast, the affection that the people of Cleveland have for their town is shared by the entire region. Clevelanders are not afraid of a little snow. You’ll see children riding sleds on sidewalks and snowball fights in the parks. When other cities shut down and shiver- Cleavlanders come out and play! If Jefferson Airplane wasn’t talking about Cleveland, they should have been, because Clevelenders really did build this city on rock and roll, and as the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, they’ve got the chops to prove it. They’ve got a unique appetite as well. With heaping corned beef sandwiches, shockingly strange Polish Boy hot dogs, and plenty to offer in the 5-star restaurant department as well, eating is nothing to be sneezed at in Cleveland. Unlike in many large cities, walking is socially acceptable here. It’s ranked among many top 10 most walkable cities lists. Why would you want to miss all this culture by riding in a car anyway?
Cleveland was established by the Connecticut Land Company in 1796, and became the Cuyahoga County seat in 1807. After the War of 1812, the city ceased to fall under attack by native Americans and the population was finally able to flourish. Cleveland became an important center of industry in the early 1900s. Located between several important transport routes, it quickly developed a vibrant working community. These working people suffered during the Great Depression as layoffs decimated the economy, but Cleveland recovered and lived to become a great cultural icon. In 2000, just 500,000 people made up the population, a fact that no doubt contributes to the genteel atmosphere which pervades the city.
Despite its reputation for cold winters and snowy weather, the fact is that Cleveland has, overall, some of the mildest weather in the country. Cleveland's warm season offers an average temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit, lasts from the end of May to mid-September and varies within a very agreeable range of between 70 and 81 degrees. The city’s cold season runs from December 5th to the 10th of March and boasts a daily average temperature of 40 degrees- not bad for a Northeastern state. It’s coldest day of the year, January 25, runs between 23 and 34 degrees. To anyone who’s used to the cold, that is a toasty winter.
Making your way around town is easy in Cleveland. It’s made several ‘most walkable cities’ lists and features many neighborhoods that are very convenient for foot travel. Cleveland has one of the nation’s finest public transport systems, and possibly the finest internal rail system- which compares favorably even with New York’s famous subway. It may not be advisable to move here without a car, but you’d have a better chance of living without one here than about 90% of the country.
Like any other major industrial metropolitan city, Cleveland’s highway system has got its ups and downs. With some of the broadest interstate highways in the nation, second in width perhaps only to the L.A. area- Cleveland’s major roadway systems are prone to bottlenecks, traffic jams, and pile-ups. The situation isn’t damning, however. Many people still commute to and from work successfully by a variety of means. Fortunately, the city itself makes up for this with its high walkability and its excellent public transit system. What’s more, for a major city- the relatively low population means that traffic within the downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods is pretty manageable. All in all, for a major city commuting in and around Cleveland, is on the whole about a 7 out of 10 experience.
