I have a favorite in which I worked for 3 years and lived for 2 summers. It is Bryan, OH population of about 10,000. It is home to Spangler Candy Co. where they make Dum Dum suckers, and Ohio Art which makes Etch-A-Sketches. Great parks, with the jewel being Rec Park, which boasts a pool, bike trail, about 10 ball diamonds, several soccer fields, Imagination Station (HUMONGOUS pay area/fort), an amazing basketball court with adjustable hoops and acrylic backboards. A large pavillion area and lots of parking. The streets are generally in very good condition, and street lighting is excellent, as they have their own city electric. A fairly busy downtown area, with minimal (if any) empty storefronts. If you get a chance, it is about 20 min off the Ohio Turnpike. Great place to visit and live.
