Ohio Magazine Features City of Kent as a ‘Best Hometown’
The November/December issue of Ohio Magazine featuring the city of Kent as one of its Best Hometowns for 2022-2023 is now available online.
The Best Hometown honor recognizes Kent as a great place to live, work and visit. The magazine’s editors chose Kent for its vibrant downtown, strong campus-community connection and focus on supporting residents and students alike.
Kent is one of five cities to be selected as a Best Hometown for 2022-2023, along with Athens, Bellefontaine, Perrysburg and Versailles.
To determine this year’s honorees for Best Hometown, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations in the spring and conducted visits across the state over the summer. The editors evaluated finalists in six categories — Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment, and Culture and Heritage — to help make their selections.
“We enjoyed our visit to Kent and are excited to share your story with our readers and online visitors,” said Jim Vickers, editor of Ohio Magazine, upon notifying the city of its selection as a Best Hometown. “Communities like yours are what make our state a special place to live.”
