I have lived in Westerville my whole life. Despite recent issues with our police, Westerville is a very family-friendly place. It is a cute town filled with kind people. There are plenty of locally owned businesses, parks, pools, stores, churches, and restaurants. It is a quiet and happy town. We are known for our great schools. The community is full of people who are willing to help one another, and safety forces whose number one priority is to keep the people safe. During our warmer months we have a festival on the fourth Friday of every month where kids come for activities, local bands play, and local vendors/ businesses come to market and sell. We also have a farmer's market. When it comes to Westerville, Ohio there is not much to complain about.

Walk across a reservoir.....enjoy the beauty of Inniswood Park.....watch the marching bands, the dance teams, Uncle Sam and Santa in the uptown parades.....then walk to the library, AFTER you eat lunch in one of our local favorite cafes.....or shop in one of the locally owned shops.
WESTERVILLE.....We like it!
From the location of my home to my current high school, there are many things that prove Westerville to be a great place to live. There are many restaurants within a few miles and also many activites to do like the Chiller, Stoneridge Movie Plaza, Easton Mall. I find the Suburb of Westerville to be very friendly and inviting to anyone passing through. I also feel very safe, could be because I live across from the police station, but Cops are very friendly and do their job right.
