Best Hometowns

2019-2020 BHT Web Headerv3

Ohio Magazine recognizes five great places to live, work and visit.

Fremont, Gallipolis, Hamilton, Hartville and Newark will be recognized as great places to live, work and visit in our 14th annual Best Hometowns issue this November. 

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, 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 featuring the 2019–2020 Best Hometowns honorees will be on newsstands by Nov. 3. Subscriptions purchased by Oct. 1 will begin with the November issue. 

Be sure to bookmark this page. We will be posting articles about each town here when they are released this November!
