I like the small town feel of New Albany. I love visiting downtown and discovering local boutiques and restaurants. You never know what you're going to stumble upon! The farmer's market is a must see on a Saturday morning. However, I wish there were more things to do. Shopping is the main attraction.

Downtown New Albany is really cool, but there is literally always road construction. There's tons of neat local businesses to check out!
I lived in New Albany ever since I was little, and I've enjoyed the balanced blend of a simple but thriving community. It has expanded tremendously with new stores and buildings rising up from all over the place. I attended a public elementary school there and I can say that it did a good job of providing me a good foundation for my education. The people are generally friendly and are willing to support one another. I have experienced it to be a safe place and I am proud to be a resident of New Albany.
