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 four 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 Forbes named Columbus a “hidden gem in plain sight,” Thrillist called the city a “queer oasis” and why Essence named Columbus one of the Best Destinations for Culinary Travel in 2024.
