Dori Heck gives her local picks

Dori Heck was a small beach town girl from Los Angeles living in New York City when she decided to move to Massillon. “I honestly had no idea what I was getting involved in,” Heck recalls of the decision to move to her husband’s hometown in 2001. “I knew I wanted to have more than one kid and wanted to stay home with them. Massillon allowed us to do that. It was lot cheaper than New York City.”

Downtown Massillon

The music that is piped in daily—seven days a week through all four seasons—reminds you that downtown Massillon is still alive. Well-maintained streets and sidewalks and structures that exhibit a traditional small-town downtown architecture are enhanced by an atmosphere of safety and a steady schedule of concerts and special events.
