Solon Ohio Real Estate - Which Area Is Best, How About Central Solon?
For those of us who live here in Solon, there is an ongoing debate about which area of the city is better, the North or South. In fact, a few months ago we actually wrote all about the best area to live in Solon and went into detail, including defining each particular geographic area. If you are trying to get to know the area better, this is definitely worth reading.
Although we are all part of one great community and it is not really divided in a mean-spirited way, there is occasionally some internal joking among residents between the "North" and "South". However, people who live in the middle of town usually get forgotten, at least until today.
This post will highlight the all important middle of town. Although there is really no specific term locals use for this particular geographic region, we will refer to it here as "Central" Solon. The following map will give you an idea of the area we are referring to:

The central part of the city is often forgotten, but is just as vital as the rest of Solon. It actually contains quite a bit of housing and popular areas of the city. Just minutes away from the highway, "Central" Solon contains important city landmarks such as The Solon Center For The Arts, City Hall, and the Solon Historical Society.
There are other popular destination spots in this area of town including Solon Freeway Lanes, Uptown Solon Shopping Center, which is host to Mustard Seed Market and Cafe, and some of our larger employers such as Nestle.
The central part of town offers a variety of housing for local residents as well. Here, you will find older homes, some on 1/2-1 acre of land, and newer developments built within the last 10 years. People who live in "Central" Solon feel they have the best of both worlds with easy access to popular destinations located in both the North and South. Many popular developments located in this area include:
The award winning Solon City Schools, Solon Rec Center, and Solon Library are also just minutes away from the center of town. "Central" Solon also offers easy access to neighboring communities such as Chagrin Falls, Bainbridge and Twinsburg.
When all is said and done, each geographic area has its benefits and where in Solon you choose to live is really just personal preference. If you are re-locating to Solon from another state, we recommend learning about Solon as a whole and looking at housing throughout the entire area. As you begin to get a feel for the different neighborhoods and factor in your commute, the question of where to live will usually get answered quickly. If not, finding that special home is often the deciding factor.
As for the debate about which area is best, I don't think that will ever be settled. However, if you speak to those who live in "Central" Solon, they may let those from the "North" and "South" just duke it out for second place as they know which area is really the best.
