I like that all of my grocery stores, gas stations and any other necessities are nearby! I live close to the airport and a few parks. The school systems are very good. I live off of a main road so my street tends to be busy. There doesn’t seem to be much crime where I live. My neighborhood seems safe and my neighbors are great. Some housing communities can be pricey, but it seems worth it!

North Canton is the typical traffic-dominated city during rush hour however, this city has all of the resources of a big city without the ridiculous size and crowd that a big city has. With 5 minutes of the Football Hall of Fame, North Canton hosts the Belden Village Mall, a wide variety of restaurants (both chain and local) and every major and local bank you can think of. Plenty of Dentist and Doctor offices to choose from and if you're thinking of purchasing a vehicle, you have tons of options to choose from with new and used major and local dealers. This city takes care of their roads in the snow and ice as well.
North Canton has hotels, land, apartments, and homes for rent year round (especially in the winter months) and will no doubt fit any persons living needs due to the many types of surrounding areas to choose from (Canal Fulton, Canton, Akron, Massillon, and suburbs of North Canton)
Very peaceful, friendly neighborhood. Neighbors take the time out to wave, and compliment each others flowerbeds, and always have time to help each other out, whether it be to borrow a cup of sugar, or help to shovel a driveway. This neighborhood is a very safe, friendly and clean part of North Canton.
