Columbus Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Columbus, Ohio - OH, USA)

Although it is fair to say that Columbus may not be the most appealing or attractive of America's cities, it is a particularly affordable destination and boasts a very noticeable injection of youth, thanks to its giant Ohio State University campus. However, that does not mean that there is no interest for tourists.

Sightseers arriving in Columbus and preparing their itinerary should consider visiting the German Village, a period neighborhood located on the southern side of the city center. The German Village comes with restored 19th-century architecture and a number of tempting beer halls. To the north, the high concentration of shops, eateries and galleries based in Short North provide plenty of distractions for a leisurely day of shopping, or alternatively, the Wexner Center for the Arts is on hand to inject a spot of culture.
