Grove City Reviews

80 reviews
All Categories
Grove City has a small town experience with easy access to the big city. Easy access to the interstate freeway makes for an easy commute into Columbus, opening endless employment opportunities. Grove City itself is well known for the biggest alumni softball tournament in the country. Hundreds of Grove City High School alumni flock back to the small town, the same weekend of every year, to play for their graduating class team. The alumni tournament does a huge part in promoting city pride for both current and former residents. Within the past 15 years Grove City has seen an increase in new businesses. While this adds significantly to the traffic around town, new options for dining, shopping, and lodging bring in new visitors as well as new options for residents.

Grove City is filled with hard-working people who are always willing to give back to the community. It's a patriotic city, constantly taking pride in our veterans and America. There are a lot of celebrations that take place, especially in the beautiful, historic town city. From Boo on Broadway to the Arts in the Alley parade, there is always something to take joy in in Grove City. Grove City is, unfortunately, in the school district of South-Western, which lacks communication with students. The schools are constantly making changes that make the students dread coming to school (like increasing the price of the lunches but decreasing the amount of food given). Grove City pays more attention and gives more money to the school that bears it's name, and the newest school, Central Crossing. The other two schools are left in the dust. If all schools were given equal attention by the city they call home, Grove City would be one of the best suburbs in Central Ohio.
Grove City, Ohio is an up and coming community just south of Columbus. What once was a small, joked about area south of town, has devloped into a large city of it's own. It has it's own micro brewery and at least one winery located in it's quaint downtown vacinity. The community is one of which is close knit, entertaining and appreciative of each other. The many activities that take place in downtown Grove City are very well attended and supported by the community. If you haven't had a chance to visit our quaint little city, you should put it on your bucket list of life's places to see.
