Quaint, historic towns like Medina are hard to come by these days. The homes are beautiful, the scenery is charming, and the population exudes a strong sense of community.
Much of the city’s architecture from early Ohio’s history has been preserved in the main square, where many residents walk during the day and frequent local cafes, restaurants, and boutiques. The square is also home to a variety of events throughout the year – the summer brings music and art to the community (and food!) with free events like Jazz Under The Stars, Art In The Park, and the annual Pizza Palooza. In the early and late fall, you can participate in twilit and candlelit tours of the city’s historic homes and monuments. And a discussion of Medina’s attractions would not be complete without a mention of the Medina County Fair – a local tradition that approaches its 170th birthday.
Medina’s desirability isn’t all about its majestic historic districts and community fun. Medina is the seat of the county, and boasts low crime rates, low sales taxes, and great schools.
In pioneering times, Medina’s location along the Erie Canal made it a prime hub of stone exportation. Now, Medina’s proximity to I-71, I-77, and I-271 make it a hub for residents that commute to Akron, Cleveland, and Cleveland’s eastern suburbs, as well as students from many local universities like Kent State University and the University of Akron.
All of these factors and more landed Medina in CNN’s top 40 most desirable cities. First-time home buyers will love the history, scenery, and community that Medina has to offer!
