Don’t take our word for it — in 2013, Ohio Magazine selected Findlay as one the best hometowns in the state (out of more than 900 Buckeye State municipalities). And for three years in a row, our community was chosen as one of America’s Best Places for Kids.
There are many reasons we’ve become such a great place to be, and a key element has been a healthy, diverse business base that has allowed us to stay strong no matter what the economy brings. The companies that call Findlay and Hancock County home have also generously supported the community, making it an even better place to live.
Findlay and Hancock County are well-suited for people who choose healthy, active lifestyles, with an extensive park system lined by bike trails and walking paths, and challenging golf courses. Knowing that bringing people together strengthens the community, we’ve developed numerous festivals and organizations, including a thriving Young Professionals organization that facilitates education, networking, and fun among our community’s upcoming leaders.
If you appreciate the arts and culture, you’ll be impressed by the scope our community offers — from twice-yearly art walks that explore galleries and studios, to the new Marathon Performing Arts Center — along with many unique local eateries to enjoy before or after showings and performances. Families enjoy the Children’s Museum of Findlay and the many attractions along the Lake Erie coast, from the Toledo Mud Hens at Fifth Third Field to America’s preeminent roller coaster collection at Cedar Point. And if you want to travel just a little farther, you’ll appreciate easy access to airports in Toledo, Columbus, Dayton, and Detroit.
