Best Reason to Live in Cleveland

It's manageable

In Cleveland, everything -- from tacos to opera tickets -- is remarkably affordable. And there is never an overabundance of stimulation. In show-offy metropolises like Chicago and Boston, one's head is likely to explode from the cornucopia of entertainment options. Here, life is simple. There are enough cultural activities so you won't have to spend every Saturday night being trumped at checkers by your octogenarian lodge president; yet, there's not so much going on that you won't have time to build that replica of the Terminal Tower out of matchsticks.
