[Updated: October 28, 2021 | Published: October 28, 2021]

Come live your best life in central Ohio’s premier senior living community. You’ll find us in Dublin, Ohio—ranked the #1 small city in the Buckeye State!

In October, WalletHub named Dublin the best small city in Ohio to live in, and the country’s 10th best small city overall.

To determine the best small cities in America, WalletHub compared 1,322 cities across five key dimensions:

  • Affordability
  • Economic Health
  • Education & Health
  • Quality of Life
  • Safety

They also considered 43 key indicators of livability, ranging from housing costs to restaurants per capita.

We’re not surprised that Dublin ranked in the top 1 percent among all U.S. small cities. After all, we chose Dublin as a great place to live nearly 40 years ago.
