A diverse town with affordable homes (median home price is $144,900), this Columbus suburb is revitalizing its main street with the Creekside redevelopment project. The development will add retail, restaurants, condos, office space and a public park with a lagoon and waterfall to the downtown area known as Olde Gahanna. The first phase will open this October. Just five minutes from Port Columbus International Airport and 10 minutes from downtown Columbus, this town is especially proud of its diversity. "We're one of the most diverse towns in Ohio, economically, racially and ethnically," says Mayor Becky Stinchcomb, Mayor of Gahanna the past six years. -D.R.
