Come for the atmosphere. Stay for the opportunity.
A few years ago, when the chart-topping musical group Mumford and Sons chose only a handful of U.S. locations for Gentlemen of the Road Stop-over Festivals, Troy made the cut.
That’s because Troy, a small town with a big heart, made the ideal venue. A picturesque and historic downtown, acre upon acre of gorgeous parks (1,300+ acres of city and county parkland), friendly residents—all together, Troy offered an inviting atmosphere in just the right key for the day-long musical celebration.
And when it comes to the ideal venue for lifelong success and satisfaction, Troy is also top of the charts for job-seekers who are seeking more. Not just a better job, but also expanding and lifelong opportunity, outstanding outdoor recreation, superior schools, and a strong future for families.
Where the world comes to work, and workers come to thrive: Come to Troy to enjoy the enhanced opportunities of a robust, diverse economy where domestic manufacturers are going strong and 16 international companies are prospering. European and Japanese companies alone contribute over $100 million in payroll. Six Troy manufacturers each employ a team of over 500. Work for industry leaders like Clopay, the number one manufacturer of garage doors; or Honda America, which operates a Troy distribution center serving the entire Eastern U.S. And while Troy’s manufacturing opportunities are plentiful, great team members are always welcome at two highly respected medical centers (including a brand-new state-of-the-art facility) and in other business sectors such as construction, office, and retail.
Another bonus: With the region’s leading workforce training opportunities easily available, you can cruise ahead of the skills curve throughout your career.
Deeper life satisfaction naturally: Troy’s seamless blending of natural settings into all areas of the city sets the stage for resort-quality recreation every day. Hike or bike on more than 30 miles of city trails, trails that connect and stretch over 300 miles. Canoe or kayak on the Great Miami River Recreation Trail, a designated National Water Trail. Troy offers recreation for all ages and interests, including a fun-packed roster of exciting team sports. At the historic Hobart Center, take a twirl on the ice or take in an auto show or concert. Enjoy solo or family excursions at the Brukner Nature Center, where injured animals get life-saving care and visitors get a life-changing experience of the natural world.
Satisfy your appetite for quality: Stroll our vibrant downtown where beautifully historic architecture meets today’s delicious tastes and trends—from fine dining to the historic K’s Hamburger Shop, from bakeries to brew pubs, juiceries to coffee shops. Enjoy ongoing concerts and sculptures on the historic Prouty Plaza, the Farmer’s Market in season, and your kind of engaging activities all year long. Great K-12 schools, plus 25 institutions of higher learning within a one-hour drive, assure you and your family a strategic and enriching education.
Your life has great value here, and so does your house. Find a home ideal for you and your family in the neighborhood that’s just your style, whether you’re looking for historic homes near downtown or new housing in high-quality developments. With home costs approximately 65% of the national average, a great investment is just around the corner.
