A list published on WorldAtlas has caused expressions of pride and approval along the streets of Mansfield.
In a post entitled “11 Best Towns In Ohio To Visit in 2024,” the website World Atlas set out to share “…the most charming towns to check out in the Buckeye State.”
According to the site, World Atlas “…was launched all the way back in 1994 (back when there were only about 2700 websites on the internet) as the passion project of cartographer John Moen and his wife Chris Woolwine-Moen. Today, WorldAtlas is one of the largest publishing resources in geography and other topics it covers, including sociology, demography, environment, economics, politics, and travel.”
The site provides well-researched and trusted information, including a wide database of maps, and is committed to providing engaging and accessible content that is both educational and factually accurate. “
While the majority of towns in included in the post are smaller communities, the larger central and north central Ohio cities of Delaware, Marion, and Mansfield are included. The Mansfield section begins,
“Set midway between Cleveland and Columbus, Mansfield is an excellent escape from Ohio’s big cities, delivering a relaxed rural retreat. It boasts an amazing mix of museums and its setting on the foothills of the Allegheny Plateau results in gorgeous natural surroundings.”
The article then goes on to reference the Ohio State Reformatory, the Mansfield Memorial Museum, Kingwood Center Gardens, and the Renaissance Theatre.
