You're Invited to Columbus in 2023

Columbus is a city built on bold ideas and fueled by relentless optimism. Here you’ll find a welcoming and forward-thinking city in the heart of the Midwest. In fact, we’re the 14th largest city in the U.S., Ohio’s capital and one of the fastest growing cities in the Midwest. From world-class museums like COSI, named the best science museum in the country for three consecutive years by USA Today 10Best, to unique neighborhoods like the Short North Arts District, historic German Village and the Arena District — where three professional sports teams live on one street — Columbus has so much to offer. See why The New York Times named Columbus one of the Best Cities for Gen Z in 2022 and why companies like Intel are choosing to call the region home. 


Why Columbus? 

Jeni Britton, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Avishar Barua, Top Chef season 18 contestant, and Coyote Peterson, host of YouTube’s Brave Wilderness, all choose to call Columbus home. Find out why.
