Columbus is one of the world's top 52 places to go
New York Times, 2019

In the Columbus Region, we’re proud of our teams—and can cheer them on no matter what the season. Catch a game with the Columbus Blue Jackets (NHL), Columbus Crew SC (MLS), Columbus Clippers (MiLB) or hometown college football-favorite, the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Hike one of several beautiful Metroparks throughout the Region. Hit the links at one of the many golf courses where golf pro Jack Nicklaus learned to play. Explore one of our neighborhoods, each with its own distinct personality and charm.

Columbus is an unlikely ethnic food paradise
USA Today, 2020

The Columbus Region has earned a national reputation for its energetic blend of arts and culture. We have the No. 1 zoo, the No. 1 science center, the No. 1 public library, and even the No. 1 ice cream.

We’re proud of our independent artists and professional troupes here, too. Count on our acclaimed museums to challenge your perspectives, and our exceptional, culturally diverse food scene to introduce you to your new favorite cuisine. You can also check out one of our many local shopping “hops” to experience local merchants, food and entertainment at its best.

Columbus' low cost of living and can-do attitude make it the perfect home.
