Named after Christopher Columbus, this Ohio town is consistently named one of the best places to live in the U.S. The capital of Ohio and the home of the mammoth Ohio State University, this city is still one of the nation's breadbasket areas as well as housing some of America's largest supercomputers.
Well-rounded, progressive and rich in history, finding a home in a Columbus apartment will put you in the center of one great place to live.
There are five key districts in Columbus. Downtown, the University area, and then the Northeast, Northwest and South areas. While the downtown area is primarily business, there are areas close by that offer housing and very good lifestyles.
Victorian Village and German Village both offer quaint residential areas and good amenities. The Brewery District is seeing a boom in both new housing and office buildings.
The Southern section of the city finds some of the grander homes while much of the new development is going on in the northern section, primarily the Arena District with its high rises. No matter where you find your Columbus apartment, you will quickly notice that it is a town being revitalized in every corner.
Columbus has an extensive parks system and much of the area along the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers is becoming a vast greenbelt area. The sports enthusiast will find places for hiking, biking, swimming and golf. There is an excellent aquarium as well as a science museum, COSI, with numerous interactive exhibits that kids, in particular, enjoy.
The city hosts several dozen annual festivals including such events as the Columbus Jazz and Ribs Fest, the Quarter Horse Congress and Festival. This is a party town and wherever your Columbus apartment is located won't be far from entertainment.
The city loves its food and can be an epicurean adventure for even the most discriminating diner. From local specialties like fried sauerkraut balls to Ôbusters', a breakfast treat, Columbus also offers a huge ethnic base for foods. Try the fare at City Barbeque or sample German cuisine at Schmidt's Sausage Haus.
The Buckeye Hall of Fame Cafe is an upscale reflection of how seriously sports are taken in Columbus. Located near the university, it is part shrine and part gastronomic feast.
Beer and Bands
Twenty-somethings head to the Arena District where there are many bars and clubs, each with a different personality. Up in Short North, try the Bodega with its 50 different draft beers. For live music, there are many options. One of the favorites for hearing local bands is The Basement. Getting into your Columbus apartment is just the start.
Then the partying begins!
