Videos Of Solon Ohio Neighborhoods While we thoroughly enjoy writing about the different neighborhoods here in Solon, Ohio, we find that videos can be even more helpful, especially to those not familiar with the area. People relocating to the Cleveland area want to learn as much as possible about the different housing in the area, and photos that are available on line don't always reflect the true essence of that home and neighborhood. With that being said,  here are some great videos of Solon neighborhoods. 1. Signature of Solon 2. Thornbury Of Solon 3. Chagrin Highlands 4.

A Night Out In Solon Ohio - Where To Go? We work with a lot of people relocating to Solon and are constantly asked about the local shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. Recently, a young couple came in for a weekend without their kids to look for a home and had Saturday night free to spend around town. They asked us what our ideal night on the town would be, but limited it to staying within Solon ( no surrounding areas ).  Knowing everyone has different ideas of fun, we came up with some great options for a "perfect night out" here in Solon, OH.        Option for Fun #1 We'd start with dinner at Jimmy Daddona's then walk just across the parking lot to the Solon Cinemas to take in the hottest new movie.  Don't fill up on movie theater junk food though as you'll want to end the night ...
