List is not bad, but who would prefer Beavercreek over say Springboro or Tipp City. Do not know how Troy beat out Tipp unless minimum size was a factor. I always enjoy visiting Yellow Springs as their people seem very happy though they are far left of my ideals in general. With a community restaurant named Ha Ha Pizza they must be happy.

Not sure on the others. My personal favorite is the little town of Archbold in northwest Ohio.

Troy, and Hobart Arena, is about to cash in because of Hara Arena's demise.

Because Troy is waaaaay better than Tipp.

I'm not sure what that donkey is looking for in a home.

Kind of funny that the town with the #1 lowest violent crime rate (by far), #1 lowest divorce/gender aggregate (only #4 Dublin is really close), and #1 median household income (only #4 Dublin is really close) is rated in this metric as only #14 - Hudson.

It would seem to me that they must place a little too much emphasis on commute time and restaurant/bar density, looking at the chart on the page that you linked.

It is of little surprise that the towns with the most bars and restaurants per capita have the most violent crime.

On behalf of everyone in Ohio, we are glad that you moved.

Count me personally among those in these forums that hope that you get mugged on your way home from your second job tonight - but not injured.

Glad to see my city on the list but at the same time I'm not. No new people.

Was in Raveena for a couple of days last weekend, hope I wasn't close enough to Ytown to get the aids!

Upper Arlington is very nice. For Cincy Westsiders, it's similar to if you built a HS in the middle of a Miami Ht/Cleves Sub division. It's weird though, it's literally within walking distance of OSU.

Miami Heights is much more suburban than Upper Arlington. And to be honest, Upper Arlington is a more wealthy area. It's much more similar to Hyde Park.

The homes are newer than most urban areas. It's off bc the HS is built in the middle of a sub division, yet OSU is right there.

The location is just closer to downtown/OSU than you would find most affluent neighborhoods. It's very similar to Hyde Park IMO.

I think they missed one by not including Delaware, OH on the list. My son just graduated from Ohio Wesleyan which is in downtown Delaware. I've watch this community grow in leaps and bounds in just the past four years. The city and the surrounding Delaware County make an awesome place to live. They've really done a good job rejuvenating their downtown.

They probably couldn't find it.

There are some really nice country towns in NWOhio that I'd add. Towns that do not butt up to a city or another suburb. Oak Harbor, Archbold, Port Clinton, Van Buren, Castalia, Ottawa-Glandorf, Grand Rapids, Van Wert, Bellevue...just to name a few. I realize every corner of the state has them. Would like to here which ones in your neck of the woods are nice and happy.

Well, when I was an OWU student in the early 2000s, one of my buddies who was a "townie" owned a T-shirt that said "Dela-where?" In a sense, you're right. When I interviewed for some jobs in Columbus after graduation, the HR people would ask where I went to college. I would tell them the school and where it was located, and many would still ask "where is that?"


Delaware had just over 20,000 residents when I entered OWU in the fall of '99, and it has nearly 35,000 today. Heck, I can remember when the Polaris Mall didn't exist yet.

It is a solid area that is still growing, but perhaps it doesn't rate well among the criteria that were used in this particular survey. Who knows how bad the commute time is with the US 23 - I 270 interchange being torn up for so long?
