Southeast Area Reviews

The area is nice and quiet, but also within a reasonable distance to Columbus where there is stuff to do (20-30 minutes, traffic depending). The towns are separated by farmland so it makes taking back roads enjoyable. Canal Winchester and one of the neighboring towns, Pickerington, are both growing, from what I have noticed in my year here, mainly with housing developments expanding and some businesses moving in. It is also located a decent distance (roughly an hour) from Hocking Hills; an area where you can go hiking, camping, among various other activities that are offered there. The trails are nice and not too intensive with some nice sights along the way. I moved here because family was close by, but if you enjoy a quiet area that is near Columbus, Canal Winchester is definitely worth a look.

In my city police are very aggressive and demanding on the minorities! Which makes me afraid to walk the streets in my own city.
The area I live in Canal Winchester, Ohio is a suburb area. As I lived here the security and safety is pretty good. but as I get older I am noticing and seeing things that isn't safe and secure as when I was growing up as a child.
