    I'm mostly familair with going south from Canton. You can go down I77 to New Philadelphia and it's just at 30 minutes from Canton. I worked in the New Philly, Dover area for several years and it's a pretty nice area. My wife lived in Strasburg several years before we moved to Wyoming and she liked it there. Bolivar area is about halfway between and is more rural and would be a great area to live in.

    Greetings from the Cleveland area. You should be able to find something nice within 30 minutes. I would certainly push the envelop to live outside of actual Canton. Have you company buy you a fast car

    Welcome to the Buckeye State! We're always glad to have one more. :)

    Consider this a cordial invitation to join Ohioans for Concealed Carry, the premier forum for Ohio gun owners. OFCC has been in the forefront of representing Ohio gun owners and has led the fight to expand concealed carry rights in the state. And, they are a good bunch of guys and gals! Stop by Ohioan for Concealed Carry Discussion Forums for the lively forum, and Ohioans for Concealed Carry for the main site. Each is chock-full of great information, and you can meet and greet lots of members up in NE Ohio.

    Again, welcome!

    Welcome to Ohio! While we don't have the best gun laws in the country, we most certainly don't have the worst--and ours are getting better. While I live in the south western part of the state now, I lived in Cleveland for a year before I went into the army, and in Kent, a few miles north of Canton, for 13 years before moving south. As others have suggested, try to find some place to live outside the city itself. That part of the state really is pretty, and there are some surrounding smaller towns that are within a 30 minute drive of Canton. Last time I was up to visit one of my daughters, there were several newer housing developments to the NW, W, and SW of Canton. Good luck in your move!

    Back in the 90's, I lived in nearby Akron and worked for a year or so in Canton. I worked at a mall on SR 172 / Tuscarawas St. I thought that the city itself was more than a little on the rough side but there are some nice areas nearby. The strange thing was that I didn't really get the feeling that it would be a rough neighborhood driving around an through it on a Sunday afternoon (prior to taking the job there). As Sixto mentioned, Hartville and Uniontown are both nice and I have known a few fairly well off people who live in Jackson Township. The area to the south is relatively rural and would provide a good mix of the rural life while not being hours from the city. To the north, you have the area south of Akron, which out to the east also has some nice and moderately rural areas. By moderately rural, I mean you can get a house on an acre or two and still have neighbors.

    The end of May, 2011 I moved from that area to Virginia.
    I lived over half my life in north eastern Ohio. 31 years of that in Summit county, the county just north of Stark Co. where Canton is.
    I grew up in eastern Washington (Spokane) so I think that I should warn you that you are going to have a shock moving to Ohio.
    I assume that you have pretty much lived in softwood country, pines, firs, etc.
    NE Ohio will definitely be a change if that is true.
    Most of Ohio's trees are hardwoods and the people give no thought to burning red oak, white oak, cherry, and even black walnut in their fireplaces.
    I nearly had a heart attack the first time I saw oak being sold as kindling!
    In Spokane the only time I ever saw a hardwood tree it was in someone's yard. Granted a few wild poplar or beech trees but mostly pine.
    In Ohio the pine and fir trees you see will be ornamentals or on a Christmas tree farm.

    Snow in the winter that far south of Lake Erie will not be too bad. It took me several winters to get used to the wet cold of Ohio as compared to the dry cold of eastern Washington.

    I hope you are aware that Ohio gets it's share of tornadoes, and the Canton area is no exception.
    Stark county is just a short drive from Holmes county where the largest enclave of Amish in the US live. As a matter of fact there are Amish all over NE Ohio.

    Within an hour's drive of Canton is probably 3-4 million people, mostly in and around Cleveland.

    Since you mentioned casinos, about an hour and a half east of Canton in Mountaineer in West Virginia. I've carried concealed there sitting at a poker table with players drinking on either side of me with me breaking any laws.
    As someone pointed out, the end of this month Ohioans with a CHL will be able to enter places that serve alcohol without having to disarm.

    Unfortunately, the Ohio legislature sits in session nearly all year, every year and the members think that aren't doing their job if they don't write more laws on top of more laws on top of more laws.
    I saw an estimate not too long ago that said that the Ohio Revised Code contains over 35,000 words just covering concealed carry of handguns. (That might be all gun laws, I'm not sure.)

    The suggestions to join BFA and OFCC are definitely seconded by me.
    This thread has links to most all of the sections of the ORC that are of interest to someone who wishes to carry.
    There are currently about 245,000 Concealed Handgun Licenses active in Ohio. That's about 3% of the adult population of the state.

    Good luck with your new position.

    EDIT: OBTW - If you are a hunter be aware that even though Ohio currently has a plethora of whitetail deer hunting is only allowed with black powder rifles, bows, crossbows, or shotguns. NO modern rifles!

    I could point out Ohio on a map, both NFL teams have orange for team colors, the Major League movie is one of my favorite things about baseball, and you may want your own dashcam if you ever get pulled over (no offense SIXTO). Otherwise I got nothin' on Ohio. Best of luck to you and your family!

    You can also use a handgun to hunt whitetail.

    Well, if you like deer hunting, Ohio is well known for its large deer. And, if you like black powder, the most awesome black powder mecca is an easy drive, hit 162 and head west to Lodi. You'll see the Log Cabin... have fun.
