From ancient Indian mounds to a building shaped like a giant picnic basket, Newark, Ohio is as interesting as it is diverse. Located 40 miles east of Columbus, this dynamic city is an attractive place for apartment rentals.
With more than 20 parks and 11 miles of bike trails, spending time outdoors is easy in Newark. Nearby Blackhand Gorge State Nature Preserve, a 4-mile-long sandstone formation, consists of 980 acres. It is a popular hiking spot, with the gorge bottom 320 feet at its deepest point. The Newark Earthworks, built between 100BC and 500AD, are preserved as a state park by the Ohio Historical Society.
Stroll through downtown Newark and enjoy the historic murals on Market Street or marvel at the Longaberger Company’s headquarters — a giant replica of the company’s “Medium Market Basket,” seven stories tall, complete with basket handles and gold-leaf tags.
With so much to see and do, Newark is a great place to call home. Renting an apartment here is sure to offer endless possibilities.
