Ohio Magazine recognizes Athens among five great places to live, work and visit
Athens, Bellefontaine, Kent, Perrysburg and Versailles will be recognized as great places to live, work and visit in Ohio Magazine’s annual Best Hometowns issue, which will be published Nov. 1.
To determine this year’s honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations in the spring and conducted visits across the state over the summer. The editors evaluated finalists in six categories — Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment, and Culture and Heritage — to help make their selections.
The magazine’s editors chose Athens for its strong community spirit, longstanding support of arts and culture, and positive collaborations that improve quality of life.
Each of Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometowns honorees will be featured in both the November/December 2022 and July/August 2023 issues of the magazine and online at ohiomagazine.com, giving readers a look at what makes each community special. Those selected are encouraged to mark the honor throughout the year.
