K. The Dover/New Philidelphia are is beautiful Amish country. I would suggest you do a number of things. Draw a circle on a map with dover at the center to decide how far you are willing to commute. Your major thoroughfares are I77, St rt 30 and Rt 250. Anything out of the city or town limits are going to be "country" roads--remember we get winter in Ohio. Decide if night-life is important as you will need to go north for that, i.e the the Belden Village area of North canton, and north to Akron and even Cleveland. Safety and price-the Akron Realtor "akronohiohomes", is pretty internet savy, try contacting him and I'll bet he can give you sites that show crime statistics for the areas you might consider as well as prices for homes and condos in those areas. BTW--I have no affiliation with him, I've just seen a lot of his posts and he seems pretty good at finding information. Once you find something you like, research it. There was a lot of mining in the areas south of Canton and a lot of the depression era homes have a lot of--well lets say--interesting deviations from what would be code.
