I live in Madison and I can literally get to Hopkins in the same amount of time as it takes me to get the soccer field in Shaker where my youngest plays.Alrighty then...not good news. I'll be driving to the Youngstown area a few times a week for work. Any other good options with easy access to 271?

Swerb wrote:One thing to consider: Shaker's taxes are ridiculously high. Highest in NE OH IIRC.I would echo waborat's thoughts. Chagrin Falls is great. Also really like Mayfield Village and Highland Heights. And Solon/Twinsburg are great as well. You will get more home for your dollar in Twinsburg than any of those cities, and it's just as nice. Twinsburg also has very low taxes. More suburbia than Shaker. Great parks, schools, amenities.All those aforementioned cities have great school systems as well, if you plan on spitting out a couple kids anytime soon.
