Dublin [1] is a thriving, upscale suburb in Mid-Ohio located about 20 miles Northwest of Columbus. The town is a fast growing community that prides itself in careful community planning and first rate schools and community services. A population of 34,000 makes Dublin one of the largest suburban communities in Columbus. Dublin is also the headquarters of several large corporate enterprises -- most notably Wendy's International and Cardinal Health. With an expansive network of parks and bikeways, manicured landscaping, and careful planning of traffic flow, Dublin is often regarded as one of the most beautiful suburban communities in Ohio.
