During my search for a new town in Ohio to call home I spoke with a few friends who have been living in Galion for a few years. I wanted their input before I made the decision to move there. What I was told by 3 different people who don't even know one another yet live in the same community is that Galion is rampant with crime, low employment and housing issues. They all agreed that the people who live there are friendly for the most part, but my thought is that if there's a problem with crime in the area, then those are the people who are involved in it. I did some research and the schools there are decent, but that's just not enough to win me over. I have lived in some of the best areas in Ohio and I'm not going to settle for anything less. I visited one of my friends and Galion for an extended stay to see for myself how it felt there, and she was absolutely right. I'll pass on the Galion, thanks.
If you do find yourself passing through the area there are a few sights to see and things to do for fun such as Seneca Caverns, the old Ohio State Reformatory, the Ohio Bird Sanctuary, Exit This escape games (my friend's favorite), and the Sk8te Place skating rink.
