Five Great Places to Live, Work and Play
Bowling Green, Marietta, Milford, Mount Vernon and Wooster are Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometowns 2017-2018. Editors evaluated the nominees in six categories — Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment and Culture and Heritage — and made site visits across the state before naming this year’s honorees over the summer. Each town will appear in the November 2017, January 2018 and July 2018 issues of Ohio Magazine.
