Westerville is a great place

by Maureen McCabe on July 26, 2007

Community Bldg Westerville Westerville is a great town, a great suburb, a great city… heck it’s just a great place to live.  It is official.

Westerville is number 46  on the list of 100 Top US Cities in the US recently published online by CNNMoney.com 

The CNNMoney.com write up on Westerville, says:

“Half of the United States population is located within 500 miles of Westerville, according to city officials. A little closer to home is nearby Columbus, the state capital. “

CNN Money.com’s  statement “Half of the United States population is located within 500 miles of Westerville, according to city officials.”  ?  Well yeah, but that’s true of Worthington, Dublin, Gahanna, New Albany, Hilliard, Grove City, Upper Arlington, Grandview Heights,  Pickerington, Reynoldsburg, Powell, Gahanna… (all small cities) and Columbus?  

socceer sculptureHalf of the US population is within 500 miles of Central Ohio places that aren’t cities either like … Lewis Center.   Or villages like Riverlea and Minerva Park…

Congratulations Westerville! Westerville is a great town (I think of the Columbus suburbs as towns not cities…even if they are not really cities but just places like Lewis Center.) On the Westerville (City of )  website they note the honor from CNNMoney.com up and say Westerville is one of the 100 best towns in the US, they must think of themselves as a town too.  The Westerville Convention and Visitor’s Bureau has it on their front page too.  They say it is a list of “places.”

CNNMoney.com said of Westerville:

“Despite its small-town size, Westerville offers residents more than 40 parks and recreational facilities, as well as a wide variety of community activities throughout the year. “

Westerville is one of Columbus Ohio’s biggest suburbs…. population wise, land wise.
