Lucas Reviews

I have had a great experience living in Lucas, Ohio. I have been living here for my whole life and I have zero complaints about the town. It is a beautiful town with friendly people and a great school. Living in this small town makes you feel safe because you will get to know just about everyone else in the town at some point. I would highly recommend people to live in Lucas and I would even recommend people to send their kids to Lucas Local Schools.

This small town is honestly really nice to live in. Not a lot is here, gym, hair salon, bank, gas station, bar, and community center which are all lovely. Good home feeling and only about 15 minutes to nearest city with restaurants, and shopping.
