The bustling Columbus suburb of Westerville has been named one of America’s Best Places to Live, a Best Place to Retire, a Top Columbus Suburb, and many more. But what’s the reasoning behind all the “Best of” accolades? Here are five things that make Westerville a great place to live.
The Fun Things to Do
Westerville might be right on the edge of Columbus and all its big-city entertainment, but it’s got plenty of its own attractions to enjoy. Uptown Westerville is a haven of fun spots—shops, restaurants, local businesses, museums, and art galleries. Westerville Community Center is a great place for trying out new hobbies, and the city itself is home to a number or interest groups and clubs.
The Beautiful Parks
The City of Westerville maintains acres of parkland and miles of trails throughout the area. The town is also home to the beautiful Inniswoods Metro Gardens and Sharon Woods Metro Park. And right next door is the expansive Hoover Reservoir, where visitors enjoy hiking, biking, boating, sailing, dog walking, frisbee, and more.
The Top-Notch Schools
Westerville City School District provides numerous academic and extracurricular programs to over 14,200 student in a 50+ mile radius around Westerville. It’s been ranked among the best school districts in the Columbus area (right up with other stellar districts like Dublin City Schools and Olentangy Local SD), and is particularly known for its outstanding college prep and athletics.
High-Value Homes & Neighborhoods
Another big benefit to living in Westerville? Getting a great home without a hefty price tag. Westerville neighborhoods have a friendly, well-kept feel—lots of sidewalks, well-maintained yards, and mature trees. There are options for homes walking distance from shopping and dining, homes with a more private feel that are still close to everything, and even some more secluded and luxurious neighborhoods.
The Ideal Location
Westerville has a charming small-town feel, but it’s really just a quick drive from Columbus, making it the ideal location for those who work in the city but don’t want to live there. Westerville is located between Interstates 71 and 270, so Downtown Columbus, John Glenn International Airport, and The Ohio State University are all within a very manageable commute.
