Cleveland is located in northeastern Ohio in Cuyahoga County and serves as the county seat. It lies on the southern shore of Lake Erie at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, extending 14 miles along the lakeshore.

The town was named for Moses Cleaveland, a surveyor for the Connecticut Land Company who chose this site for the capital of the Western Reserve. In 1831, the name was changed to Cleveland by a newspaper editor to more easily fit into a headline. Development accelerated with the completion of the Ohio Canal, connecting Lake Erie with the Ohio River.

Today, the city's population is about a half million people. Combined with Akron, Cleveland forms the 14th largest metropolitan area in the United States. Regional industries include biomedicine, instruments, controls, electronics and insurance.

The city is home to Cleveland State University and Case Western Reserve University, among others, Cleveland Lakefront State Park and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In addition, pro sports teams like the Browns, Indians and Cavaliers are based here.
