Columbus is a big city with a small town feel! It just hit 2 million residents and it’s still growing.
Columbus has so much to offer, which makes it an amazing city! There are sub-pockets of the city that all have something unique to offer. From the Short North, with its artful and hip flavor, to Jerome Village, exploding with new development, to Delaware and it’s rebirth of antiques and small town shops.
There truly is something here for everyone.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll love the restaurants here! They’re always coming up with the new thing to try. But a few staples would be the Thurman burger from Thurman’s Café in German Village and Jeni’s Ice Cream… Yum.
Sports fan? Columbus is home to THE Ohio State Buckeyes, the Blue Jackets (a professional Hockey team), the Columbus Crew (MLS Soccer), a professional Lacrosse team and more!
Are you an outdoorsy type? Columbus is lucky to be so close to Hocking Hills and tons of other parks to get your nature fulfillment.
The best part about Columbus is that it’s centrally located in the state so if you wanted to go somewhere for a day trip or weekend to getaway, it’s completely do-able! Cincinnati and Cleveland are just 2 hours away (in opposite directions). Chicago? A 5-ish hour car ride.
I love this city and hope you will to!
