Orange Township was a wonderful place to grow up. All of my fondest childhood memories are because of this town. It’s a very family friendly, community-oriented place. I am 24 now and have no intention to leave any time soon. There are so many parks/bike paths, yet there is shopping and restaurants galore, so it’s the perfect combination. I always feel safe. As a kid I would be outside on my bike riding around town all day, and never had a fear.
The school district is wonderful. When i went to college I felt so prepared compared to my peers. Now as an adult, there is an abundance of job opportunities here because of the rapidly growing community.

I couldn’t have asked for a better place to grow up. The houses sell quick here (for good reason) so don’t hesitate!

Decent, lots of residential area, places to eat out, stores, but little entertainment. Quick drive anywhere.
As is any typical state in the Midwest, Ohio is pretty bipolar when it comes to weather patterns. In fact, Ohio changes its weather patterns faster than I change my shoes! One day, the world will be completely green, the sun out, the birds chirping, and the ground moist; the next day, it's a blizzard, snow covering every square inch of land that the eye could possibly see, and the silence is so unbelievably deafening that it ruins any sort of liveliness I'd expect from the Buckeye State.

However, this irregularity does not impact my life as much as one would expect. Snow is usually the biggest problem-- the black ice that hides itself all over the roads, the chunks that stick to the wheels of my car, but perhaps the scariest thing is when my school district doesn't acknowledge Ohio's hills and tiny valleys and still expects us to drive to school in such conditions. This does not deter our spirits, though! We Ohioans fight the ice and the cold (a light fleece jacket in 32 degree weather does not bother us), and yet we still manage to function well enough.
