I cant think of any reason to move to Cleveland. The weather sucks, its extremely segregated, its economically depressed with no end in sight.

Stick with Baltimore or visit Charlotte and see how you like it.

CLEVELAND has WORLD CLASS CULTURAL OFFERINGS IN THE GORGEOUS "UNIVERSITY CIRCLE" AREA ... THESE INCLUDE THE NEWLY RENOVATED AND GORGEOUS "CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART, SEVERANCE HALL ( HOME OF THE WORLD RENOWNED CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA ). Cleveland also boasts the BEST HEALTHCARE FACILITIES IN THE US .. and in some cases the entire world ... THE CLEVELAND CLINIC and UNIVERSITY HOSPITALS both have very impressive "mini city like campuses" that virtually rub shoulders in the UNIVERSITY CIRCLE AREA. Cleveland has gorgeous older suburbs such as Shaker Heights, Lakewood and Cleveland Heights ... these inner ring suburbs offer opulent homes, quality schools and tranquil settings ... all at a mere fraction of the cost you'll incure in a BORING CITY LIKE CHARLOTTE! The city of Cleveland itself offers a plethora of trendy and hip districts such as Tremont, Ohio City, Gateway and the Warehouse district. The older skyline of Cleveland is much more appealing too ... the venerable Terminal Tower stands sentinel over the city alongside gleaming, newer glass styled skysrapers. Dont forget the beautiful Lake Erie shoreline, the museums and the rolling hills and ridges that comprise Cleveland. CHARLOTTE is basically flat as a table top, sprawling and congested, lacks any real cultural offerings and is very expensive. CHOOSE CLEVELAND or STAY IN BALTIMORE! Nuff said

Out of the 12 apartments in my section of the building I live in (2 and 3 BRs) there are 8 people from the Cleveland area.

Shouldnt really have to explain why.

Hopefully the unemployment rate for each of these metros has been taken into consideration.

Charlotte 12.4% (third highest in the country among major metropolitan areas)
Cleveland 10.1%
Baltimore 8.0%

I'm living in my 5th state, and I've never had a job lined up before I moved. The key is saving up money to have a month or two to find a job once you get there.
