Best Place to LiveWhat makes the City of Powell one of the best places to live in the United States? According to CNN/Money Magazine, our jobs, education, crime rate and access to leisure activities earned us that title.

Since receiving that distinction, the accolades have continued. Early in 2010, Delaware County, the portion of central Ohio that Powell calls home, was named one of the "Best Places to Get Ahead" in the U.S. by Forbes.com. Forbes.com has also called Delaware County one of the country's five best places to raise a family, based on cost of living, reasonably priced homes, quality of schools and short commute times. Delaware County also finished No. 6 on CNN/Money's list of 25 counties that have experienced the most job growth in the last 10 years. And most recently, a Business Journals On Numbers survey ranked Powell 5th among 955 Midwestern communities for quality of life, ahead of any other Ohio city.

We have always believed that we're part of a great American community, but it’s always nice to have someone else pay that same compliment.

Please take a virtual stroll and discover for yourself why people love to call Powell home.
