So… you have guests in town and you want to show off the best of what Columbus has to offer. While our city doesn’t have too many large tourist-trap type destinations, there are some specific places where you can easily showcase how much fun Columbus can be from a tourist’s perspective.

When we asked our readers where they like to take their guests, the number one result was The Short North. This walkable urban neighborhood features unlimited entertaining potential that includes shopping, dining, drinking, dancing, picnicking, biking, people-watching, arts-viewing and plenty more. It’s also within close proximity to Downtown hotels and neighborhood B&Bs, so those staying nearby have easy access.
