"Delaware, OH: The Little City With Spunk!"

I have lived in Delaware, OH since 2002 and love it. It has all the feel of a small town but is only 30 minutes away from the capital of Ohio, Columbus, so there is never a lack of things to do or enjoy. Delaware itself is pretty spunky! With Ohio Wesleyan College in town, the actual historical downtown area is alive and thriving. There are several locally owned shops and restaurants downtown ranging from clothing and pet supplies in retail to pizza and steak dinners in restaurants. Every year we host the Delaware County Fair where the Brown Jug takes place. This event brings in horsemen from around the world to compete in the race. With holiday parades, a lively downtown, a thriving college, and restaurants galore, I would recommend visiting or living in Delaware to anyone!
