Downtown / Things to Do
Columbus locals head downtown for family fun, shopping, date nights and cultural events. We think spending time in our downtown is one of the best ways for visitors to get to know our city. You’ll be struck by the charm of this colorful, bustling and walkable neighborhood.
Many of the buildings that have made Columbus famous are located right downtown. Some visitors are surprised to see the modernist buildings we’re known for mingling with historic Victorian storefronts. Exploring on foot is a great way to see it all!
