I would describe Pickerington as a great place to live! It is clean, and diverse with all walks of life. There are plenty of walking and biking trails to help you get around and enjoy nature.
Pickerington is my hometown but it is not somewhere I would like to stay. There are very great schools and nice people. There are several job opportunities for not only adults but teenagers as well. There are many good choices as you will not grow tired of the same ones. Pickerington is located about 15 minutes outside of Columbus and is bordered by the cuties of Reynoldsburg, Canal Winchester and Baltimore.
