Upper Arlington is a wonderful, beautiful community. The houses and lawns are taken care of and look inviting. The city is family friendly with awesome schools and amazing teachers. I never feel unsafe and don't have to worry about my child's safety either.

I live near upper Arlington and love it! Great place to raise to family! Generally quiet and extremely safe.
The suburb itself is fantastic. Lots of family and kids live here which makes a daytime walk or bike ride enjoyable. The schooling is incredible. Although sometimes the high school and middle schools can be difficult socially, the education we received is beyond exceptional.
