Five Great Places to Live, Work and Visit

In the November issue of Ohio Magazine, Bowling Green, Marietta, Milford, Mount Vernon and Wooster will be recognized as the five best hometowns in the publication's 12th annual Ohio's Best Hometowns issue.

To determine the honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations and conducted site visits across the state. The editors evaluated the nominees in six categories - Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment and Culture and Heritage - to help finalize their selections.

Each of Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometowns will be featured in the November, January and July issues, showing readers unique places to visit and ways to enjoy each location. The Best Hometowns are encouraged to mark this special honor with celebrations throughout the year.

The issue will be on newsstands by Nov. 3, 2017. Subscriptions purchased by Oct. 1 will begin with the November issue.
