Everyone is so friendly, helpful, and nice. I have lived here since January 2017. I moved from Columbus, Ohio, which was a big significant change. I have met the best kind of people in this town. I was able to keep employment and the town has every thing you could possible need. Christmas is just the best up here. I never want to leave Upper Sandusky, Ohio!!

I've lived here almost my whole life and couldn't see living anywhere. There are job opportunities in town, as well as a couple larger cities with opportunities for employment.
As a current resident of Upper Sandusky, I believe we could improve on the diversity of our town. It has a small range of races, not including the foreign exchange students who come for a certain period of time. The town has a lovely reservoir and a small park. It can get boring time to time, since the town really doesn't have a lot going on.
