It’s no secret that Ohio is home to some really charming small towns. (Be sure to check out
Oberlin is arguably one of Ohio’s most underrated and overlooked towns. It’s not just a college town; it’s also a beautiful place to live that’s strong in its roots—and it makes for the perfect day trip destination. Take a look:
This progressive little town of approximately 8,400 residents has a close-knit community, a rich history and a lively arts and cultural scene.
In 2012, it was voted one of the state’s "Best Hometowns" by Ohio Magazine. It's a lovely town to visit and the perfect place to call home.
Home to the private liberal arts college, Oberlin College, this town has always been a leader in societal progress.
In fact, Oberlin College was the first American higher education institution to admit female and black students.
Today, it's a safe haven for creative souls to blossom. (Neighborhood art such as knit graffiti is a common sight to see here.)
There's always some sort of community event going on. After you've toured the beautiful college campus, take a look at what's going on around town.
While you're in town, be sure to check out the recently renovated 1913 art-deco movie house. It's a neat piece of history you need to see.
You'll find it at 19 E College St., Oberlin, OH 44074.
The farmers market is a great way to get a taste of the town's culture. (Both literally and figuratively.)
During the season, you'll find it open every Saturday downtown, in front of the Oberlin Public Library.
A town proud of its roots, you'll find beauty all around in Oberlin, from the architecture to the streets. It's a must-visit for every Ohioan. <3
