The city of Independence is a beautiful and vibrant suburb of Cleveland. Independence is located just 8 miles south of downtown Cleveland, 8 miles west of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, and 20 miles north of Akron. The interchange of I-77 and I-480 are readily accessible to every major residential suburb, as well as downtown Cleveland, making the city a prime, central location to Greater Cleveland. What makes Independence truly unique is that just south of its high-tech economic district (where the College of Podiatric Medicine is located), is a quaint little historic town nestled in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley.
