Columbus

Downtown Columbus
Downtown Columbus
While home to Ohio State University, one of the largest campuses in the world, there's more to Columbus than Big Ten sports. Boasting a sizeable geographic footprint, Ohio's capital is the center of government, home to a numerous national brands -- Nationwide Insurance, Wendys, Limited Brands -- and a breeding ground for a growing research and high-tech economy. The city is also blessed with scores of charming suburbs, all begging to be explored. Touring the galleries of the Short North is an absolute must for art lovers, while foodies make a point to sample the culinary riches of German Village and Grandview. That youthful supply of students keeps area music clubs packed with up-and-coming bands and the groupies who love them. For sports that don't happen to bleed scarlet and gray, there is professional soccer, professional hockey, and a minor league baseball team that plays in a brand new stadium.
