Wapakoneta Reviews

All Categories
Wapakoneta is a quaint little town in Ohio off of I-75 and Rt 33. The town puts on plenty of events during the summer season, often pulling in visitors from out of state. Downtown is full of history and friendly faces. You can find great local food, an old small town theater with nightly showings, and plenty of antique shops. Near "hamburger row" you'll find a bowling alley, and the famous Neil Armstrong Museum, full of artifacts from the initial moon landing. There is a hidden gem in this town. Ask anyone in the area, or even a star like Johnny Depp and they'll recommend visiting Jim Bowsher's "Rock Garden." Its a collection of rocks and artifacts from all over the world arranged artistically in his back yard. He leaves it open to the public during the day, asking only for visitors to respect the property and his collection.

Living in Wapakoneta, OH is great because I-75 and State Route 33 intersect here, making travel convenient. This is very important to my wife and I, as we are both travel all over the state for work. Wapakoneta has a thriving down town with great food and an old movie theater that my wife and I enjoy frequently. The community is very involved in our high school athletics, especially football. Wapakoneta has all of the necessary shopping, and specialty shopping is close by in Lima, St. Marys, and Celina.
Its a small town feel where you can basically get to everything around the city within a short distance car ride or a decently short walking distance. There are several career opportunities available from Lowes to walmart and fastfood joints abound.
