I'm a CLE gal, born and raised. And I’ve lived other places, but I always come back home – by choice, not by chance.

The people I know who make a life here genuinely love it, but often hear the same question, “Why Cleveland?” The worst part is when people who actually live in Cleveland ask, “Why Cleveland?” I get convincing the outsiders. But when Clevelanders themselves ask, “Why Cleveland?” Well, that's a problem…

This blog is my journey to find, experience, and share great reasons why you should live, work and play in Cleveland; why you should be proud of our town; why we’re one of the best locations in the nation.

My hope is that, through this adventure, you'll find a better answer next time someone asks you, “Why Cleveland?” Or maybe it'll stop you from asking the question of someone else…
