Ohio Magazine recognizes five great places to live, work and visit.

(CLEVELAND, OH –August 29, 2013) —In the November issue of Ohio Magazine, Vermilion will be recognized as one of five BEST hometowns in the publication’s eighth annual Ohio’s Best Hometowns issue. 

Ohio Magazine editors selected Vermilion because it embodies all of the qualities and characteristics that make Ohio hometowns so special: family-friendly events, inviting green spaces and beaches along Lake Erie and the Vermilion River.  

Vermilion's amenities lend themselves to a welcoming small-town atmosphere. Bustling downtown shops and restaurants, beautiful parks, rich nautical history and attractive neighborhoods create the type of place that makes tourists want to become residents.

In this special collector’s issue, Ohio Magazine also recognizes four other communities as 2013-2014 Ohio’s Best Hometowns:  Aurora, Gahanna, Logan and Loveland.  The issue will hit the newsstand on October 22, 2013. 

To determine the honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations and conducted site visits across the state. The editors evaluated the nominees in six categories — Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment, and Culture and Heritage — to help finalize their selections.

Each of the Best Hometowns will be featured in the November, January and July issues of Ohio Magazine, showing readers unique places to visit and ways to enjoy each location. The Best Hometowns are encouraged to mark this special honor with celebrations throughout the year.

Ohio Magazine’s eighth annual Ohio’s Best Hometown honor marks the success of these five communities in these categories.
