Grove City is a great community and the perfect distance from Columbus. There is so much to do here, and if you want to spice it up, you just drive 15 minutes to Columbus! Unlike other suburbs like Hilliard or Dublin, Grove City hasn't been overbuilt on. It is so pretty and the parades and festivals are so much fun, especially the Christmas parade and Arts in the Alley. All around a fantastic place!

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 an excellent area with so much to do! If the shopping is done there are many parks to kick back and relax in. A great food, store, school, and entertainment city. Broadway Grove City is great! Farm markets every Saturday.
