Westerville has everything you can possibly want! I mean, there are parks for walking, there are malls with 5 minutes. It has a wonderful little downtown area in Historic Westerville. Ive grown up here and love the culture of Westerville. Odds are that you know someone who knows this distant person that you met once at a party. It has a very small town vibe, but it is really quite large.

Westerville its self is a beauty, from its natural parks to its rustic home uptown feeling. Westerville is a character, and if you come to Westerville, you will never want to leave. COME represent the beautiful community, be the community!
I was born and raised here. All bias aside, I truly do still believe it's the best place to be. The people are so friendly, the education system is phenomenal, there is plenty to do, I have always felt safe here, etc. I can't say enough great things! I could not see myself living anywhere else.
