I love the Short North! Restaurants, pubs, shops, galleries - so much to explore! It's a fun, funky, eclectic area of Columbus with GREAT dining options. Definitely explore on foot.

Hipster heaven with a diverse crowd. Trendy and artistic shops and eateries galore. Murals painted on sides of the shops along the streets and unique places tucked away into alleys between main thoroughfares. Fun area.
