Experience Columbus

Now's the time to experience Columbus! Downtown Columbus is filled with entertainment districts, full of shopping, restaurants and other attractions. The Arena District surrounds Nationwide Arena, while the Short North Arts District houses one of the best collections of art galleries between New York and Chicago. South of downtown are the historic Brewery District and German Village.



The city's performing arts are showcased in four restored historic theaters. Columbus offers an abundant performing and visual arts scene with touring Broadway performances and professional ballet, symphony, opera, acting troupes and world-class museums.



Shopping doesn't get much better than this. Easton Town Center packages high-end stores with dining and entertainment, while Polaris Fashion Place has five anchors including Saks Fifth Avenue.
