Close-knit Centerville OH

I love living in Centerville, Ohio! The school district is excellent, and there are lots of new things to discover every day for every type of person. My daughter loves to go hiking at Cox Arboretum, and my son loves to play putt-putt at the Adventure Golf. My girlfriends and I love to get together on Friday nights at Raise Your Brush for a night of painting and wine.

The community is very close, and in the summer time there are always people walking to get ice cream at Graters. It is the place to go for families and high school students. It's also fun to poke around in some of the small shops, like the Sew A Lot, Zig Zag Gallery, Loralei's Boutique, and Easter Price Candies. While there are more mainstream shops and restaurants, the small boutiques and shops give a small town feeling to the area. These are some of the best areas in the city!
