Love Grove City, even though it is small there is lots to do, and the people are great. Football Friday nights are always the best in GC! Especially the Central vs, GC game which are cross town rivals. Local business like chick flia will get involved in the competition the week of too! Grove City is a fun safe where everyone kinda knows everyone.

Grove City is a wonderful city that maintains a small town feel yet located next to a larger city. Interesting art galleries, cafes, and big box stores are conveniently located in and around Grove City. You can spend the day getting cookies from Capital City Cakes or go to the nearby coffee shop for artisan blends. Theres also numerous bike trails and roads that easily connect Grove City and Columbus.
Grove City is a wonderful place to live. Resembles a "small town", but is close enough to the City that you don't have to travel long distances to get places!
