"A Good Place To Raise A Family"

Zanesville, Ohio is located about 60 miles (one hour) from the capital city of Ohio, which is Columbus. Compared to the surrounding towns, Zanesville is a pretty big city. It's where everyone comes to eat, shop, or just hang out.

Zanesville has many of the restaurants you would find in larger cities along with tons of local eateries. These little mom-and-pop type places are what gives Zanesville such a homey feel. Many locals prefer the small restaurants as opposed to the large chain ones.

There are also a lot of parks in and around Zanesville. Since the city is located along the Muskingum River, many of the walking paths meander along the riverside, making for a beautiful scenic route.

The people is Zanesville are very friendly and neighborly. Whether you live in the middle of town or on the outskirts, it's a great place to raise a family. The streets are quiet, there are tons of parks, and the schools are constantly being improved.

I would recommend Zanesville for anyone who wants a quiet neighborhood that isn't too far from the big city.
