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 community of my neightborhood, Worthington Hills, and the activities available year-round. There are regular 5K races, softball games, cookouts, and special festivities during 4th of July weekend. The people are very inclusive and encourage each other to look out for one another. As a child, I could safely run around all summer and know that everyone's parents were looking out for each other.
