Locals love to call themselves “East Siders” and “West Siders;" it’s a rivalry dating back to the 1830s, when merchants on the east and west banks of the Cuyahoga River competed for business and fought over access to the only bridge that crossed it. Today, while geography and demographics continue to give communities on both sides of the river their own unique personalities, most residents would say that greater Cleveland’s two halves mirror each other more than they differ.

A sophisticated network of highways and bridges provides easy access across the Cuyahoga River, as well as to the freeway along Lake Erie (locally known as "The Shoreway") and to the south along the thriving I-77 business and residential corridor. From urban apartments and lakefront condos to charming bungalows, historic estates, and newer suburban developments, Cuyahoga County provides options for every lifestyle and budget, no matter what “side” you’re on.
