We moved here from Powell and have never looked back. We love the walkability of Old Worthington, the sense of community, the diversity and the amazing Farmer's Market. Our kids have had a great experience in the schools, finding a much more accepting atmosphere for those who don't quite fit the mold. Overall, love Worthington!

I like a lot about Worthington. Although it is not perfect, there is a lot of things to like about it. It has everything you would want to live a peaceful, normal life. It is nearby a lot of good things to do. It feels constantly growing and is a great place to live. I think the schools are good. They are great places to go to school because they have good teachers and are overall safe. The houses are going up in price in some areas, but you can find affordable places. I see a lot of job openings so you should be able to find work pretty easy.
I enjoy this city and I have lived here for the entire span of my life! I have two jobs in this city and greatly admire the citizens I come into contact with. Worthington is beautiful and has a lot of nice, independent shops and restaurants in the downtown area. Additionally, it's very close to Columbus, a metropolitan hub.
