General Content

Columbus is the 14th largest city in the country and the fastest-growing city in the Midwest. You’ll love exploring the place that is known as one of the nation’s most creative, innovative and up-and-coming destinations. Celebrated for its incredible arts, entertainment, fashion and culinary offerings, exciting collegiate and professional sports teams and spectacular sprawling green space on the Scioto Mile downtown riverfront, this city has something for everyone.

Columbus’ food scene features top-ranked chefs, a rich farm-to-table movement and one-of-a-kind restaurants. Columbus has consistently gained national recognition for its food scene in recent years, including head chef of Service Bar, Avishar Barua, competing on Season 18 of Top Chef in 2021. You’ll find more than 100 restaurants in walking distance of the convention center, with the largely local options ranging from fast-casual to fine-dining and everything in between.

Columbus’ vibrant neighborhoods offer endless entertainment options. Collectively, these districts are referred to as the “Five on High,” as they sit on a five-mile stretch of High Street, the city’s main drag. Each neighborhood is packed with local restaurants, bars, clubs, boutiques, art galleries and more. Many of these popular locales are accessible on foot from the Greater Columbus Convention Center or by a short ride with Uber or Lyft.
