If you long for the countryside and love peace and quiet but still want to be close to the big city, Geauga County is a beautiful place to live. Geauga is home to the second largest Amish population in the United States. The county seat and largest town is Chardon, with a population of just over 5,000 people (which is comparably large, considering that just over 95,000 call the county home). But do not let the size fool you – Geauga has plenty of attractions, shops, and restaurants. Found just thirty miles from Cleveland, its towns and rural communities are full of nature and charm, prime for enjoying a small-town lifestyle.
