The Food Scene
Here in Columbus, we take our food seriously.
You’ve heard of New York-style pizza and Chicago-style deep dish pizza. But did you know that Columbus has great pizza, and it’s a style all our own? Characterized by a thin, cracker-like crust, edge-to-edge toppings, and a square cut – Columbus style pizza is pretty distinguished and definitely delicious!
We love supporting our local food culture, and with access to so many great farms, it’s easy to see understand all the farm-to-table restaurants in town. Here’s a great list to try!
Whether you’re in the mood for a covert speakeasy, some craft burgers and brew, made-from-scratch comfort food, or Tibetan street food, we’ve got you covered. We also do a really great brunch!

Fun For the Whole Family
No need to leave the kids at home, either. Whether you’d like to spend a day at one of the best ranked zoos in the nation, or tinkering around COSI (Center of Science and Industry), one thing is certain – you won’t be bored.
A hot summer’s day may call for some splashing around the wave pool at Zoombezi Bay or a quiet stroll in one of the city’s 20 metroparks.
And every family visiting Columbus is challenged with finding the city’s best ice-cream. Are you on team Graeter’s, team Jeni’s, or team Diamond’s?
Try all three and let us know!
It’s a Cultural Hotspot
Columbus is a thriving, diverse city.
Thanks to large corporations, hospitals, and even the Ohio State University, we see an influx of interesting people from all sorts of cultures.
And our city reflects this.
Whether you’d prefer to meet local artists showcasing their work during the Short North Gallery hop, or to take your time to wander through some of city’s great museums, you’ll find some incredible art.
We have great ethnic festivals, an exciting music scene, and amazing performance art.
We Love our Sports
It’s been said that Columbus has the distinction of being “one of the smallest big-league cities.” While it’s true we don’t have our own on professional football team, there is nothing like experiencing a Buckeye game day in Columbus. The entire city bleeds scarlet and gray, and it’s common to see tailgating and football festivities on every corner.
It’s also fun to take in a Columbus Blue Jackets game, cheer on the Columbus Crew, or watch the Columbus Clippers!
