we live in berea, and my husband works in youngstown - talk about a commute! it's over an hour! he may be working mainly in lordstown. we can't make up our minds whether to move or stay put! berea is perfect for us - it's safe, and diverse, and we own our home, but do not have a whole lot of equity, and our credit is only fair at best. even if we decide it'd be worth it to move, is there a town/small city comparable to berea out there? our schools were rated as excellent, we have a special needs child, one child of mixed race, and two more wonderful children! we don't want to ever rent again. i'm a nurse and can find a job probably anywhere we move. any advice? thanks.

I know one town down there that reminds be quite a lot like Berea. Its called Canfield and its about 30 minutes from Lordstown. Its very nice, nice new homes as well as an older style district, and its got a great school system. Its very safe and the nursing oppurtunity is great. Looking a Boardman the suburb to the east just down Rt. 224 offers a lot. They are building a brand new hospital. I would really check out Canfield. Its reminds me a lot like Berea.

I ran a business in Boardman for 15 years or so and as far as Trumbull/Mahoning Counties are concerned Canfield and Boardman are the communities to look at. People are great and schools are good. Only draw back to either one is the route to the shopping area in Boardman (not much shopping in Canfield except groceries and gas) is the infamous Rt 224. Christmas time is worst when the 10 mile trip from Canfield may take up to 45 minutes or more. Reason for this is there are only 2 E/W streets that go all the way through Boardman
