On the Rise

Columbus is growing. Fast. Already the 14th largest city in the U.S., the metropolitan area has grown by 33% since 2000.

Our diverse and welcoming city is easy to get to, and easy to get around. John Glenn International Airport offers 150 daily non-stop flights to 40+ destinations, and half of the U.S. population is within a one-hour flight or one day’s drive of Ohio's capital city.

The U.S. Figure Skating Championships are new to our city, but big events are not. In recent years we've hosted the NHL All-Star Game, NCAA Women’s Final Four, and the President's Cup. Up next is the 2024 MLS All-Star Game

Boitano & Brown's Best Things to Do

We asked Brian Boitano and Jason Brown their favorite things about Columbus and what skating fans can expect in January.

Get Downtown, Stay Downtown

The airport is just a 10-minute ride from the championship venue. Located in the heart of the Arena District, Nationwide Arena puts fans hundreds of places to dine and unwind and within a short walk or ride.
