About Us > About Canton Ohio
Welcome to Canton, Ohio
Located in northeastern Ohio, the City of Canton provides its residents with many benefits of big-city living while maintaining its charm as a medium-sized Midwestern town. Canton is home to well-known national landmarks such as the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame, the William McKinley Presidential Library/National Monument, and the National First Ladies Library and Research Center.
In addition to being the birthplace of American professional football and many important figures in our nation's history, Canton is also home to a vibrant arts community. The Canton Symphony Orchestra, Canton Ballet, and Canton Museum of Art all give residents a place to experience art and culture from around the world, while our growing local artists' community is quickly becoming well-known as a dynamic presence in the region.
Canton and surrounding areas offer numerous local parks and natural resources for biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing, and other outdoor activities. Whether you are looking to immerse yourself in a rich culture, hop on a tour, enjoy a little comfort food or find your bliss away from the everyday routine, you will find what you are looking for here or in nearby Amish Country.
Canton also has a local, convenient airport with major airlines and flights to national destinations.
World-class hospitals and five area universities contribute a great deal to residents' high quality of life, while the natural beauty of our public parks and green spaces allow some time away from the hustle and bustle of city living. With the cost of real estate estimated at less than half of the national average, Canton is as affordable as it is enjoyable.
