I’m a bit concerned about the picture of our city’s skyline on Wikitravel. It is dismal. Just compare it to the skyline photo of Dayton at the same site. Someone needs to put a better Columbus skyline photo up there IMHO.Asap.December 7, 2015 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #1105896

Banner image guidelines
Want to create a banner like the one above? We’d love to see it!

How to create a banner
If your photo meets all the requirements, the next step is to upload.
1. Upload the properly cropped banner to Wikitravel Shared and make sure to name it using the destination name followed by “Banner.jpg”

The wikitravel article for my hometown Springfield is hilariously half-assed and at the same time completely accurate.
Springfield, OH is a small-medium city in Ohio, USA. It is somewhere between Columbus and Dayton.
I recommend visiting Springfield by taking the exit off I-70 between Columbus and Dayton.
Check out the Hampton Inn, Red Roof Inn or other similar Inns.
McDonalds, Arby’s and some similar local fare are all excellent. Prices are generally low, but if you look hard, I’m sure you can splurge.
There are several gas stations and a Kroger.
Springfield is not well known for its culture, but it does have people. There is also a University. Singer John Legend hales from Springfield.

They should use the South Park rendering of Columbus.
