Troy Ohio, what an amazing town. The perfect size, not too big or too small. The town is full of fun activities, many wonderful restaurants, and is very festive for all seasons. In the summer you can cool off at the local pools, or in the winter you can go ice skating at Hobart, or sledding at the levy! There are many activities, and volunteer opportunities to be involved with, you will never get bored! The people are always friendly, and it is a very safe community. Overall Troy Ohio is a family friendly town who cares about the community and takes into consideration opinions of the people. It is a great place to live. If I could change one thing it would be to have more live events. Even though we do host a few of concerts, and shows, in the summer time I feel as if we should try to maximize the use of our facilities and host more often through out all seasons!

I've lived in Troy all my life, and over the years it's really come into its own as a quaint and friendly little town. Downtown has all sorts of shops and restaurants to explore and there are plenty of events throughout the year, including a farmer's market in the summer!
Being raised in Troy and still living in the city, I have seen and done many things here. As a kid we have multiple parks and playgrounds. A lot of different activities to do as well, one of my favorite was bowling. As an young adult there are a multitude of places to hang out with friends and go out to eat. There are old and new neighborhoods to take walks in to see the advancement of troy; along with the new bike path! Also with a lot of history to learn and no one can ever forget the amazing Strawberry Festival!
