Ohio Magazine recognizes five great places to live, work and visit.
Athens, Bellefontaine, Kent, Perrysburg and Versailles are recognized as great places to live, work and visit in our 2022-23 Best Hometowns issue.
To determine the honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations and conducted site visits across the state in the spring and summer. 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 2022 and July 2023 issues, showing readers unique places to visit and ways to enjoy each location.
