In Our Backyards: Where We Like to Live and Visit

Clevelanders divide the city into “East side” and “West side,” with the Cuyahoga River being the dividing landmark. Because UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital is on the east side of town, it's most common for residents to live in the near Eastern suburbs, downtown Cleveland, or in the historic urban Cleveland districts just west of the river. Check out our Cleveland Neighborhoods information, in the Life in Cleveland section of our website.
