Probably, yes.

Default Cleveland?

Cleveland is one of the nation's leading cultural centers, is a design center, has a very low cost of living, and is one of the cloudiest cities in the U.S., given its location downwind of Lakes Erie and Huron. Of course, this also results in lake effect snow, but it's generally heavier at higher altitudes to the southeast and east.


Check out the Cleveland Museum of Art, with free general admission, the Cleveland Institute of Art, and University Circle in general. Your wife might be particularly interested in the Cleveland Flea and the 78th Street Studios in the Gordon Square Arts District.


About | 78th Street Studios

Cleveland State University is a good public university with heavy course offerings in the evening. Cleveland has one of the nation's best theater districts, one of the world's best orchestras, one of the nation's best public food markets, and is a regional foodie and craft beer center.

With Lake Erie, Cleveland certainly has water. It once was known as the Forest City, and a legacy of that is its unique "Emerald Necklace" and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It has a relatively robust mass transit system.



Scraping your car would be an issue 2 1/2 months of the year. With global warming, with a few exceptions, the snow season now is from late December until early March. Of course, covered parking is very common.
