Of the three which would you call more retiree/senior friendly for compact downtown commercial areas, walkability and relatively easy access to good grocery stores as well as farmers markets? Also feel free to chime in if I'm missing another option as good or better.

Well, I'm a fan of Westerville and used to live in the older uptown area. We walked all over. It's been awhile since I moved away, but we go back to Dublin and Worthington to see family and the traffic in those areas is awful. If I moved back, I'd go right back to the center of Westerville.

Imo Worthington is the best, they also have a very good very big farmer's market on Saturdays. the last poster mentioned traffic- all suburban Columbus traffic is terrible. I could see myself living in Worthington and not needing to constantly go elsewhere. Uptown Westerville is a somewhat close 2nd though, but outside of the central area it feels very suburban very fast. I do not like Dublin at all really.

I’m retired and live in Westerville, but would prefer Worthington if I had to choose between the three options you mention. Honestly though, husband and I are considering relocating to Victorian Village or a bit farther south toward the Southern Orchards area where my husband grew up. A bit more affordable and much more diverse.

All three of these are very white bread and not welcoming to POC or mixed race couples. My husband is African American and we get the cold shoulder when we’re up there.
