Nice, quiet, safe town! I live near the Maumee river and it is so beautiful. My only issue is the smells of the muddy maumee! My apartment is in the country but close to everything. It is hard to find a apartment that has that country feel. I feel safe in Waterville to the point where if I leave my daughter in the car quick to run into my apartment, I know I am in a safe place. Waterville is a great place to raise a family and I think my daughter and I are lifers!

Waterville is a fantastic place to spend time with family. Traffic can sometimes be bad, but not like a big city. There is a beautiful library and various parks. The school system is fabulous. There are both large houses and smaller ones. Very family friendly. Great pool to join for the summer. Roche de Bouf festival in the fall is a staple event in the community. The Maumee river lines the small town and makes it even more gorgeous.
It has an extremely low crime rate and you can trust your kids to go anywhere and not have to worry about them. Restaurants are good and it is very historic. Schools are also phenomenal. Great place to live!
