Gahanna has worked hard to become known as more than just a suburb of Columbus. The community has developed a vibrant character, and in 2007 was named one of the best places to live in America by Money magazine. Locally-owned businesses flourish, and historic buildings have been lovingly preserved all over town. The city limits of Gahanna contain nearly 800 acres of parkland, including the 50 acre Gahanna Woods State Nature Preserve.

Gahanna’s position just northeast of Columbus proper allows residents to easily reach the bigger city’s attractions, including the Ohio State University campus, the Columbus Zoo, and of course the endless dining, shopping, and entertainment options. Less than fifteen minutes from downtown Columbus by car, Gahanna apartments are close enough to be a convenient home base for commuters as well.
