There are a lot of grocery stores, fast food, and restaurants/bars within 5-10 minute drive from this area, as well as a cheap movie theater. There is not much variety in retail shopping, although a 10-15 minute drive will get you to a large outdoor mall called Easton. There is a Kohl's nearby, as well as a Marshall's and Homegoods. There are more big companies and chain stores and restaurants than mom-and-pop stores, but there is an amazing local restaurant called Cap City Diner nearby, as well as the B-Spot. You can get everything you need in this area.

Ohio is fortunate to have two great politicians working for the improvement of our state. Our current Governor wants to see Ohio grow to be one of the leading states in the country. He does not shirk from difficult decisions that may make him unpopular in the short term; but pay off in the end. The Mayor of Columbus has served us for as long as I have been a citizen. He has turned our corn field covered region into one of the fastest growing shopping, residential and culinary regions in the country. In fact, some say we tie with New York City in many ways. Our Mayor is an excellent leader that has maintained integrity throughout his tenure and I hate that one day he will retire.
The area is between three cities so there is access to several schools within the area. Also, there is an abundant amount of resources like grocery stores, restaurants, and recreational activities around close by.
