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. Since 2002, Columbus has hosted more than 600 new sporting events, including the NHL All-Star Game, NCAA Women’s Final Four and NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship.
