Sunbury is a nice village, reminiscent of an older small American town. We have several parades a year through town that are well attended, and homecoming at the high school is an event for more than just high school students. The people are generally friendly, and the area is growing. We now have many restaurants, and many other options for shopping and dining are within a 30 minutes drive. Sunbury isn't as diverse an area as you would find elsewhere in the greater Columbus area, so if you are looking for true diversity you should probably look closer to downtown Columbus. But Sunbury is a great place to call home.

Sunbury is a wonderful small town with that hometown feel. The community is wonderful at coming together to help one another. The school system is like no other! The school system is truly interested in helping every student reach their goals and milestones regardless of obstacles.
This is a great community. It has a small town feel and friendliness even though it is just a short drive from greater Columbus area. There are always community events that help bring everyone together and it's a great place to raise a family!
