We are so excited to welcome you to our city and show you all it has to offer. Columbus is a city built on bold ideas and fueled by relentless optimism. We can't wait to show you all that’s possible when you Live Forward.
Columbus loves its sports. From the Ohio State Buckeyes (NCAA) and Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL) to the Columbus Crew (MLS) & Columbus Clippers (MiLB), you’re never far from the action. Catch a game right downtown at one of our three amazing venues along a half-mile stretch of Nationwide Blvd, or as we call it, Sports Street.
Columbus is filled with things to do. Take a short walk or ride from downtown and check out any number of nearby attractions, including the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, COSI, the National Veteran’s Memorial and Museum and Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. Save up to 20% at these sites with our Attraction Pass.
Our city is also a fashion capital. With more designers per capita than any other besides New York and Los Angeles, the city knows its stuff. With great fashion, of course, comes great shopping.
Hungry? Columbus is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of America's up-and-coming culinary destinations. Its restaurant scene is creating a buzz with its creativity, diversity and one-of-a-kind experiences, from classic diner fare to fine dining, to offbeat, ethnic and funky cafes.
