  • Three things I miss most about mid-west living, Fall color, playing football in the snow and brick house with basement, two of those three can be found here. Really lovely walk IMO. The only thing you have to watch out is the uneven pavement, if you have a weak ankle like me, watch your steps.
  • Amazing organization, community-minded; approve of the arts and its place in our neighborhood.
  • It was a very nice experience will go back again soon!!!

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.
