Where is there? Well, this is downtown Columbus, Ohio right across from the Convention Center and right next door and in front of the North Market. It’s also a block or so away from the Short North Arts District with all of it’s wall murals and art galleries and great places to eat and drink indoors and on patios, and if you keep going in that direction north on High Street you will eventually land on Ohio State University’s campus.
To the lower right and a bit behind is the Arena District where there are sports and music events. Further to the lower right (south on High Street) you will find yourself in German Village with it’s beautiful old architecture and guess what? More good eats! There is a bakery there whose name I forget that made the best cookies! They didn’t even make it from the bakery to the car they were that good! We’ve been here for five years now this month and still do not know where a lot of things are but what we have explored we’ve come to really like and sometimes love.
The science center, major companies, hotels, theater and street festivals (Highball Halloween is coming in a few weeks), Drake Brothers Mead (good stuff), the wonderful parks, antique stores galore and so much more are around here. They are building new hipster lofts and boutique hotels while behind them are beautiful old homes that have been around since the early 1900’s. It was hard at first moving here from the only place I have ever lived but now it is home. But I will always be loyal to my home town baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals; NLC champs for 2015 🙂
Enjoy your weekend everyone. My plan is to participate in one of the local Scott Kelby’s worldwide photo walks tomorrow but the weather is saying 60% chance of rain with winds and highs in the mid 50’s. Not so sure about that…
