What can I say? If you have looked at a newspaper or turned on the news within the last couple of years you will be very familiar with the name of Chillicothe, Ohio due to the crime rate there, including several disappearances of local women that are yet unsolved. Living in Chillicothe became a nightmare and I got out of there fast! It was always a boring place, no nightlife, no restaurants besides fast food, nothing to do unless you count going to Henry Good skatepark in Yoctangee Park, or going to the Southern Ohio Storytelling Festival the first weekend after Labor Day in September. Other than that, you can look forward to finding sub-par housing and a crime rate that is astronomical when compared to the rest of the state.
It's sad to say, but I would not recommend for anyone to move here. The best areas in Chillicothe, Ohio are located FAR AWAY FROM Chillicothe, Ohio! Boring, run down, high crime rate, a haven for drug users. Keep going - there's nothing to see here!
