Congratulations, Westerville, Ohio on making CNNMoney.com’s list of America’s best small towns! Money Mag

1-Shop the farmer’s market on the corner of State/Home. (Weds 3-6pm/Sat 9-12pm, from June 6-Sep 26th)
2-Check out the Westerville library. Calendar of events page: Westerville library
3-Take a dip in one of Highlands Park’s 7 pools: Highlands Park. Speaking of pools, the Rec center has a pretty cool setup too (not to mention plenty of other activities)!: Westerville rec center
4-Head out for a day of fishing (or boating) at Hoover reservoir: Hoover fishing map . Just be sure to get your fishing license first!
5-4th Friday’s in Uptown (6-9pm)…or enjoy Uptown’s retailers any day of the week!
6-Pack a picnic and head to one of Westerville’s many parks: http://www.metroparks.net/

Oh, and for you singers out there, I hear that Java Central’s got open mic nights on Friday’s from 7-10 pm too.

ps. forgive me but I’m just figuring out how to change URL’s. I couldn’t get them all but if you’ve got any tips, I’d love to hear them.
