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.

Worthington is a hidden gem among the Columbus suburbs. Having attended their schools, I can say their educational system is impeccable as they have been awarded the Blue Ribbon on several occasions. They have many wonderful neighborhoods in which to raise a family. It is an incredibly safe area and one that is located near many Columbus attractions, such as 315 so one can hit the campus area, or Polaris mall. They host many events in the cute downtown area including a farmer's market every Sunday. They have countless local shops and restaurants that can feed anyone's' desire for fun and cultural experiences. Having been founded prior to Ohio becoming a state, it is a great place for history buffs as well; The Worthington Inn and the Orange Johnson House are of particular notice. Overall it has been a great town and one I am proud to call home.
I love the Farmers Markets they have year-round every Saturday morning. Worthington is also home to malls, community events which are posted on social media and in a community newsletter, very close to highway access, and Polaris Mall and Easton Mall.
