After reading the glowing reviews, I found that it was not all what I had thought or hoped. VERY spread out, the places of interest are few, and very far between. While it does have some interesting architecture, that too is not easily found. We...More

German Village is a nice, pricey area of Columbus that hosts some really good eats depending on your cravings. Here's my favorites: Lindsey's - best quiche' and chopped salad ever; Mohawk - potato pancakes and crustless pizza are yummy; Thurman's - best burger anywhere -...More

What's not to love about the brick streets and lovely homes in the area. Great coffee houses, restaurants, bookstore, etc. Schiller Park is a wonderful little park. Stop at one of the bakeries and don't miss Helen Winnemore's.
