Medina is an upper-middle-class bedroom community for Cleveland and Akron. The town is a traditionally conservative community that is growing and quickly changing. Many people refer to Medina as a “Hallmark” town, with a quaint downtown with an active square and a gazebo. People travel from all around Medina to visit the square and attend events. There are many great parks in the area and also several walking and biking paths. It is normal to see deer, and other wildlife, wandering around people’s yards (and eating their flowers) in the evening.
