Default Interracial acceptance?

Thanks to everyone who contributes to this forum. I have lurked for a while and have learned a lot, even though I was born and raised in Cleveland. After having lived away for more than 10 years, I have a question of my own:

Young, interracial couple from Washington, DC with 3 kids not in school yet (but will be very soon) with liberal views

Looking for a city/neighborhood that offers walkable activities, shops and restaurants (TGIFriday's or a mall do not count) with good schools

For argument's sake, let's say the location of the job is not part of the consideration. What would you recommend?

CLeveland Heights first, then Shaker Heights.

Shaker square is in the city of CLeveland, and have some deal that kids there can go to Shaker city schools. Also try Lakewood, South Euclid and University Heights. Most of the east side suburbs are diverse and liberal. I'm not too familiar with the west side.

Definately stay on the east side, with the exception of Berea all of the western suburbs are predominatley white and are known to be unwelcoming for people of color and I'm sure I a bi-racial family would be just as unwelcome.

Anywhere on the eastside, you would find welcoming I live in Oakwood in Ryan homes Meadows development and their are a couple mixed families with in the development so you might want to check them out too.

There is some truth to this. Some non-whites, immigrants may get some dirty looks.

Oh my goodness! Dirty looks! What a nightmare that would be.
Try being a white and walking through or living in some of the minority neighborhoods of Cleveland, or any city. Dirty looks will be the least of your problems.

I'm not as familiar with the West Side, either. I will say, though, neighborhoods like Ohio City and Tremont have reputations as being quite diverse and liberal. You would have NO PROBLEM as a mixed couple, living in one of those areas and would not have to lower your housing/living standards either, as both are among Cleveland's hottest neighborhoods, RE-wise.
