Overview of Lakewood

Lakewood apartments for rent are tucked away with vintage style homes on the shores of Lake Erie. Lakewood spans merely 5.6 square miles and is located minutes away from downtown Cleveland. The town of Lakewood was incorporated in 1889 and by 1910, the population had reached nearly 12,000, which qualified the town of Lakewood to be recognized as a full-fledged city. The downtown district of Lakewood has been recognized with many awards, including "Best Place in the Midwest to Buy an Old House," one of "Ohio's Best Places to Raise your Kids," and the "Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit."
