Probably overall the best suburb of Columbus, Ohio. Although not perfect, nothing in life ever is. There is an acceptable amount of diversity, although the Asian/Indian population seems to be dominating the other races at times. Plenty to do; lots of shops, restaurants, parks, you name it. The schools are excellent, with Jerome being the most competitive both academic and athletic wise, Coffman being a good medium with the only downside being the drug use and exclusivity, and Scioto being the “worst” with just average academics but a stronger sense of community and the most diversity. Wonderful place to move to and raise a family, or even for young professionals to start their career. Overall this suburb is superior to the rest.

I love living in Dublin, it’s an extremely nice suburb! The neighborhood I am in is extremely friendly and you get to know all your neighbors. Historic Dublin is really nice and has a lot of food places to eat! The night life ends a little early but that’s because it’s so family oriented. The schools are very highly rated. Dublin is only about 20 minutes from downtown Columbus and Easton Town Center which are two common areas people like to go. There are many good restaurants and they just opened a new area that has bars and other things to do, apartments are there as well so it is literally it’s own community.
I haven't had any issues living in Dublin. I moved here years ago, and so far its been safe. I would not leave my bike outside of my house because bikes do get stolen here, but I haven't experienced any violence. Like any area, kids can behave inappropriately, which is why its important to make sure your children don't go far. In front of the house is fine, and when the neighbors see that kids from other neighborhoods are coming and treating kids badly, then they stick up for them and alert the parents. One of the neighbors are very friendly and reliable when we need something in our house to be fixed, or when we need someone to collect our mail when we are traveling. Our next door neighbors are also very kind and we enjoy their company during the short conversations we have when we happen to enter or leave our houses at the same time. Overall, I do not mind Dublin.
