Wood County Reviews

2 reviews
Love it! Okay, here is Wood County: rural, and then suddenly you will hit a town. The town can vary in size from two houses, to a city like Bowling Green, or to the Toledo suburbs of Perrysburg and Walbridge. Nonetheless, it is a great county, very quiet and safe. You get a wide array of people from farmers to university students. There is a lot to do in this county so long as you are able to drive.

I like the size of wood county. It is rather large in scale but doesn't take long to commute. I generally feel safe in most of Wood County.
