I'm currently looking for information on any decent size towns between New Philadelphia and Mt. Vernon. I have found Wooster and Coshocton being the only two between these two towns, they are still smaller than I'd like but at least Wooster has a college...does anyone have any information on these towns and also any other towns you would recommend along the way. I am a college student; I am currently taking online courses but would love to go back to a brick and mortar school. I also have a son who is 4 and is currently enrolled in a full day Pre-K program here in Oklahoma any info on the Pre-K schooling within these areas would be great. I'm leaning towards New Philadelphia as there is many more job opportunities there compared to the smaller towns, I have a computer networking degree and hope to utilize it while attending school. So this is pretty vague, I am just trying to get a feel for where I would be most comfortable living. I moved to Oklahoma two years ago from Colorado and really really miss the big city. So I'm searching for a happy medium. Any info would help, as I'm apartment searching as we speak! Thanks in advance!

When we were down in Ohio for family obligations late last year we lived bout a 1/2 hour away from New Philly. We did most of our shopping there. You mentioned alot of jobs in that area. I did not see alot of jobs while I was there and my sister lives in the area and I can assure you there are not alot of jobs. Unless you have alot of funds I would strongly recommend you either check it out thoroughly or apply for employment before you make such a move. Akron and Canton area would be more where employment might be somewhat better for you but it's about a good 45 minute (at least) commute from New Philly.

If you really miss the big city atmosphere keep in mind New Philly is not considered a large city and basically anything out of Philly is going to be a small town type. In Philly, there is a Super Wal-mart there; Bob Evans Restaurant; Denny's and your usual assortment of fast food places and an assortment of stores. There is a decent mall there also. Dover is close to Philly but again it's not a real large city. The sad thing is that area has been hit hard with unemployment as is the story in most places. I would recommend you go visit there (if you haven't done so already) and take a good look around, talk to the locals and check out the employment. I am a native Clevelander and Cleveland has been hit pretty hard also, but you might check out their employment also. Also, check out Hartville, Ohio; that's a cute town. Wooster is also another one I'd check out. I really don't know of many towns in between Philly and Mt. Vernon (and I dont know anything about Mr. Vernon). Good luck.
