I moved from Youngstown 23 years ago to Gahanna. My experience has been wonderful, the school’s are second to none. Five of my children graduated from Gahanna Lincoln. Everything I need is conveniently located; shopping, my Doctors, car repair and most of all, very friendly people! Overall great place to call home!

I absolutely loved growing up in Gahanna! It has a small town feel but isn't actually too small. There are people from every background imaginable and it gives you a chance to connect with people different from yourself. The Gahanna Public Schools are also great, there are more opportunities offered through Gahanna than majority of the schools in other Columbus suburbs.
Great community! Very diverse and family friendly with much to do. Creek-side is a main attraction with great scenery and dining. Schooling is fantastic with hard working teachers who strive to make their students better. Located just 10 minutes from downtown Columbus, there are lots of job opportunities and commute is quick and easy. Lots to do and lots to see.
