Centerville, Ohio is a beautiful town with an old classic feel. It is safe for people of all ages and offers monthly downtown walks. These walks have artwork, sales, and events! The holiday season is beautiful with trees laced with solar-powered lights. I have always felt welcomed in Centerville, Ohio.
