The following is a list of the top ten reasons to call Huntington home:

1. The People

Never too busy to wave, say hello, or lend a helping hand to a neighbor in need, Huntingtonians know the meaning of hometown hospitality.

2. Marshall University

With a new library, football stadium, fine arts center, medical school and an enrollment in excess of 13,000, it is the heart of Huntington.

3. Cost of Living

Many of the amenities of a larger city without the big city price tag.

4. A Safe Haven

For more than a decade, Huntington has boasted one of the lowest crime rates in the nation, according to FBI statistics.

5. Ritter Park

First dubbed the "Jewel of Huntington," it is the city's premiere playground.

6. City of Churches

With more than 150 places of worship, Huntington has a long standing religious tradition.

7. Location, location...

Within 500 miles of 60 percent of the nation's population, you're next destination is closer than you think.

8. Health Care

Two major hospitals and a first class medical school have made Huntington a health care mecca.

9. The Downtown

From sidewalk strolls to specialty shopping to fine dining, Tri-Staters can do it all downtown.
