The Discovery City

More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia. Named after Christopher Columbus, this cosmopolitan city boasts America's highest concentration of students, most of them attending classes at one of the country's biggest public research universities. The nearly 60,000 students affect the city's economy by making this one of the most budget-friendly urban centers in the United States. The city's diverse neighborhoods offer a good selection of museums, galleries, restaurants, and shops, which attract a growing number of tourists. Columbus is in Ohio (OH).

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near the Interstate exits.
