Columbus is #1
It's that time of the year when we tend to take a look back. When I reflect on what the past year and half has meant to Columbus, I'm reminded that this is a city with much to celebrate.

We're number one. A lot.

I'm not just saying that, either. There's proof:

Excitement abounded when COSI was named #1 science center in the country by Parents Magazine .

Shortly after that, Columbus was named #1 sports town in the U.S. by Scarborough Sports Marketing.

We love sports, but we also love books. The Columbus Metropolitan Library was ranked #1 library in the nation by Hennen's American Public Library Rating (it's been in the top four every year since 1999).

That was followed by the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium being named #1 zoo in America by USA Travel Guide .

Then, E. Gordon Gee, president of The Ohio State University , was named #1 college president by Time Magazine .

And most recently, Huntington Park was named Ballpark of the Year by Baseballpark Digest (and, the park received the same distinction from back in August).

We're on a roll, Columbus. Who will be honored next?
