Cleveland is Coming Back to Life - Time for some Downtown Living!

- Tuesday, July 21, 2020

As we all know, the last few months have presented themselves to be a very unique time.  This has been a time of rest, change, connection, realization, and concern.  Everyone has collectively been either waiting or helping to end this time.  Many found themselves working from home - or unfortunately not working at all - and having to adapt to new schedules, new expectations, and new surroundings.  Some have been continuously working hard to ensure the rest of us can have a safe and secure time in waiting.  Overall, it’s a period where you may find yourself thinking, “When will all this end?”

Well, it may not be over, but there is light at the end of the tunnel!  Life is slowly coming back to Cleveland and many other places around the globe.  There are less restrictions, less limits, and more opportunities to celebrate this time in all our lives.  Where’s the best place to do some of that celebrating? Downtown Cleveland is the place to go!

People choose to play, work, and live downtown for a number of reasons.  There is a vibrant scene of culture, unique and exciting businesses, and experiences to be had!  There is SO MUCH MORE to the downtown Cleveland area than just restaurants and dining out - although that is a great benefit!  Anyone that enjoys a run or jog would appreciate the running routes past the lake, over the bridge, and throughout the open spaces.  The Public Square and the Mall are both open areas as well for people to get out and stretch their legs and minds.

If the restaurant scene is more of what you’re there for - while things are still opening up - many downtown restaurants are still offering takeout and delivery options!  You can still get your favorite meals in your favorite areas.  A picnic is a great way to enjoy some local cuisine while staying safe.

You know the best part of working from home?  No commute!  What’s better than living where you can work?  A spare bedroom or fitness space in your apartment can double as - or transition to - a home office if needed!  Check out our blog on creating the ultimate home office to get some tips and tricks for your perfect workspace. 

Get a change of scenery! Were you looking to make some changes in your life before the world stopped turning? Moving is able to be done safely right now and the weather is perfect for carrying boxes!  With everything else, touring of places like homes and apartments became more creative during the past few months.  There are more ways than ever to see the perfect place, make a decision, and make a change!

There are many great things to do now that the world is starting to find its new normal.  Make sure you continue to be safe, respectful of others, and enjoy yourself as much as you can.
