5 STAR LIVING! 5 rating By Anonymous ( Aug 17, 2022) What can I say, my wife and I (middle 40s) moved here 2 years ago from NYC after intense research on Areavibes. We left family and friends with the hopes to better our lifestyle. And BOY DID. WE. EVER.
Westerville is RICH with quality neighborhoods, far FAR from being lonely or i
...Read More solated. Uptown Westerville is a beautiful historic village with beautiful little mom & pop shops, restaurants, coffee shops and cute ice cream shops. The Main Street (S State street) is often closed during the summer to host parades and street vendors (every 4th Friday), the nearby amphitheater, Polaris fashion mall and nearby parks host free weekly concerts and fairs, the many sport centers and parks offer open tennis and Pickleball courts where we met wonderful families and couples. And if all that isn’t enough, Easton shopping area, Downtown Columbus, Worthington Village, Dublin and New Albany are only minutes away, where you will find fine dining experiences, rooftop lounges, bistro cafes and amazing parks and lakes. We’re proud to call Westerville our new home and look forward to spend the rest of our life here in this magical place. Read Less
Westeville Peaceful and Relaxing 3.5 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) Living in Westerville, Ohio is very lonely at times, but there are pros and cons to living here.

Since I love ...Read More to exercise, I usually take advantage of this in the summer at Blendon Woods Park.

Westerville mini-golf is in the city and a nice place to take kids or those that love mini golf. It's one of the best miniature golf places I have ever been to because it's clean and fits in perfectly with the natural surroundings in Westerville.

I do most of my clothing and shoe shopping in Columbus, but we have the typical stores such as Walmart, Target, Kohls and a few natural food stores. If you are looking for a specialty store, then it may be worth the 10-mile drive to Columbus. Read Less
