There is so much to do, see, and eat in this area. So many choices of places to eat that will please any appetite. Don't forget to hit Nationwide Arena for a Columbus Blue Jackets hockey game while you are here!

We attended an NHL game (Blue Jackets defeated the Mighty Ducks 4-2) and had a great time. Food and drink were reasonably priced, too.
