Other states may have acclaimed places such as In-N-Out and Whataburger, but we have the employee to car service, and grape milkshakes.

3. Sports has highs and lows 


Cavs, Browns and Indians. From the highs to the lows, it's never the same.

4. Calling Progressive Field it's old name 


The location at which the Cleveland Indians play, formerly known as Jacob's Field.

Kid Cudi, MGK, Steve Harvey, Langston Huges, Halle Berry and a plethora of other well know people orientated from Cleveland.

Living in Cleveland allows for an easy getaway to spend time on the closest thing Ohio has to a beach.

8. Construction


No matter the season or year, construction is prevalent on almost any given road or freeway.

9. Chief Wahoo


Despite the mass controversy surrounding the Indians' mascot, Chief Wahoo, it'll always be close to your heart.

10. Winter


Although the five-eight snow days may have been nice as a kid, driving in the winter storms now are anything but fun.

11. Our supposed "accent"
