Hi Everyone,

I will be moving to Ohio this summer, hoping to find a good town close to Wooster (a range of about 20-30 minutes). I'm in my young 20's so I'm looking for a town that has a bit of night life to offer, along with an active community, with shops, restaurants, parks, etc. Any towns you can think of that I should check out? Thanks so much!

Default Ashland may be right for you.

Wooster is a fine town. Ashland county is 25 or 30 minutes away and has a state park. Both towns are college towns but Ashland has lower taxes and more trees.

Default Night Life

Wooster doesn't have very much to offer. The places to go would be New Philadelphia,Dover Or Columbus all further than 30 minutes but not by much.

I live smack dab in the middle of Wooster.

Quiet town despite having the college around the corner. If you want a place with a nightlife, this isn't it.

I like the quiet!!!

You are in big trouble if you require a community with a pulse anywhere near Wooster.

The closest I can think of that *might* offer something would probably be around Akron / Kent. I don't know much about other communities because I just moved to the area myself. All in all, the whole area is very affordable with good people. Just a slower pace of life and not so much nightlife. However... if you put yourself centalized (say, live near Wadsworth), you're within a half hour commute to downtown Cleveland at that point.

Dover and New Philidelphia are terrible. They are sad and depressing places that as far as I can tell have very little to offer to young people (all the ones I know there are dying to get out of it). And Columbus is an hour and a half away from Wooster (not a little over a half an hour as someone previously suggested). Wooster doesn't have a whole lot to offer, but there is a college downtown and the north end has grown tremendously to have a lot of shopping. There are a couple college-age bars in Wooster (three amigos, bw3s, and I can't think of the last one's name). And there are a ton of parks in Wooster. I do agree with bubbagirl that the akron/Kent area may be a little bit better option (I live in Kent currently and there's all kinds of stuff to do here).
