Avon Lake, Ohio is a very modern suburban town. It is very pleasant and quiet with almost no crime at all. The city's public schools are top in the state and the overall quality of life is very admirable. The only downsides to this city is that it is predominantly white. Also, there isn't much to do in the city itself but the neighboring cities host lots of entertainment. Downtown Cleveland is also a 20 minute drive making the city very reachable.

The weather in Ohio is unpredictable. We have the four seasons but during some of those seasons the weather can get pretty rough. People usually say, "If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes". The winters are usually extremely cold and a lot of snow. Springtime in Ohio can be beautiful but usually very rainy. The southern part of Ohio usually has a much larger threat of tornadic weather. I think where I live, Lake Erie protects us from that. Summer time is usually humid and very warm. Sometimes drought is an issue, but that hasn't been the case for the last few years. Fall in Ohio is my favorite time of year. Leaves changing, cool crisp nights, seems like the air is cleaner. I like to call this "sweatshirt" weather. Hoodies are essential for the Ohioan closet.

Although there are rarely any natural disasters, Avon Lake has all four season. Summer is the best time since the city is on the lake with great beaches to enjoy. The fall is always chilly with great weather that is perfect for campfires and football games. Winter is the worst. It brings horrible blizzards and snow storms causing everyone to be trapped inside. Spring takes awhile to arrive but once it is here (usually in April) 50 degree weather seems like summer weather.
