I moved from a huge city in Northern Virginia to a small town in Ohio. Somehow, I like it a lot better. I am very fond of the tight nit community and how we take care of each other. I also enjoy the fact that you can see someone in the store and know who they are. Norwalk is a very small community with lots of attractions for people of every avenue of life to become a part of

lots of good food places. A lot of activities to do such as parks, and the local rec center that holds a lot of youth sports and activities there. Has multiple good coffee shops that are in town. Plenty of supermarkets that allow access to healthy and affordable foods. Plenty of job opportunities in Norwalk. Has a great local hospital as well as multiple private practices.
Norwalk is a fairly clean city with little to no trash on the streets or sidewalks. Family friendly with activities for adults and children. Multiple bars and diverse restaurants selection. Good school systems, both public and private.
