So much to do here. Lots of unique restaurants, shops, galleries, many cuisines, boutiques, fun things to browse or buy. Take a stroll through Goodale Park, it's beautiful, see the quaint re-habbed houses, have a great meal, try some Jeni's ice cream, it's fantastic!

Loved this place! Lots of fun places to visit and eat at. It was also fun to just walk up and down just to see what might be there. There was construction and parking was somewhat difficult to find, but no biggie!

This is a wonderful must go area of Columbus. It is filled with small boutique shopping and some of the best dining in Columbus. It is also filled with art and breweries. They have the gallery hop every month as well.

I guess if you live in the area it is something to do. Coming from out of town it was simply businesses and restaurants down the street. They look nice but nothing real special.
