Conneaut is small. Everyone knows our name at the post office, the pharmacy, the stores, ect. My kids like the schools and love the fishing. To live right on Lake Erie is awesome. But: there is alot of unemployment and alot of retired individuals so for employment it is not good. The roads need fixed, they keep using the cheapest contractor to fix the roads and a year or 2 later they need repair again. Be prepared to sit and wait at the train tracks often. There are 2 sets of tracks that go right through and divide the city into north and south and sometimes you'll get 2 trains at a time or have to go all the way to one end of town to go under the bridge or go all the way to the other side of town where they finally put up an overpass to get to the south side where the hospital is. It was happening too much and people weren't making it in time.
