Community Overview:
Ohio Magazine chose Wooster as its 12th annual Best Hometowns because of its strong sense of community, access to arts and culture and thriving downtown with a host of shops and restaurants that draw residents and visitors alike. Wooster, Ohio is a mid-sized community of approximately 26,000 people located in the center of Wayne County, midway between Cleveland and Columbus, just off of US 71. 

Downtown Wooster is the cornerstone of the community….dedicated to the development of public/private partnerships, maintenance of small town tradition, development of specialized retail, professional, and governmental businesses/offices, and celebration through events. Whether you’re in the mood for pastas and gourmet pizza at Broken Rocks, a perfectly grilled steak at City Square, Hungarian pastries at Tulipan, or great deli sandwiches at Spoon, downtown has something for every taste. There’s an independent bookstore, the sophisticated upscale St. Paul Hotel, a year round farmer's market, antique and gift shops, and the Wayne Center for the Arts. 

Wooster offers excellent educational options from a Montessori School to public and private schools and excellent local colleges. The College of Wooster is America’s premier college for mentored undergraduate research offering an excellent, comprehensive liberal arts education. 

Given the local presence of the Ohio State University, the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC, a teaching and research facility dedicated to agricultural science) and the College of Wooster a unique culture of opportunities are presented here.  Experiences such as the Ohio Light Opera and Wooster Symphony Orchestra provide a charm that a town of Wooster’s size might not ordinarily possess. 

If you are looking for outdoor activities, it’s a short drive to Ohio State’s Secrest Arboretum, the mountain biking trails at Vulture’s Knob, and the 1,000-acre Mohican State Park. Singletracks has dubbed Wooster "the mountain biking capital of Ohio." The city’s park system offers amenities that include hiking trails, two pools, and a disc golf course.
