Milford is recognized as one of Ohio’s BEST hometowns in Ohio Magazine’s 12th annual Ohio’s Best Hometowns issue

In the Nov. issue of Ohio Magazine, Milford will be recognized as one of five best hometowns in the publication’s 12th annual Ohio’s Best Hometowns issue.

Ohio Magazine selected Milford because of its strong sense of community, vibrant business district and scenic location along the Little Miami River.

Ohio Magazine also recognizes four other communities as 2017–2018 Ohio’s Best Hometowns: Bowling Green, Marietta, Mount Vernon and Wooster. The issue will be on newsstands by Nov. 3. Subscriptions purchased by Oct. 1 will begin with this issue.

To determine the honorees, Ohio Magazine solicited nominations and conducted site visits across the state. The editors evaluated the nominees in six categories — Community Spirit, Education, Entertainment, Health and Safety, Business Environment and Culture and Heritage — to help finalize their selections.

Each of Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometowns will be featured in the November, January and July issues, showing readers unique places to visit and ways to enjoy each location. The Best Hometowns are encouraged to mark this special honor with celebrations throughout the year.
