Did you know? Columbus is the Number 6 best city for creatives (SmartAsset, July 2015).
Located just up the street from campus, the Short North Arts District offers something for everyone. Whether you are interested in looking through art galleries, shopping, eating or drinking coffee, you will be impressed with the excitement and local focus that the Short North has to offer.
The community is centered around visual, performing and music arts and currently includes more than 18 galleries of various styles. Each month, the Short North Arts District hosts a Gallery Hop where all of the galleries, shops and restaurants are open from 4:00pm-10:00pm. This is a great community event to help Columbus celebrate its art.
While you are experiencing all of the art, you may find yourself getting hungry! Not to worry- the Short North offers incredible selections for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The district is also home to many coffee shops, bars and local wine, beer and spirits. If you are going to be in the area, make sure to get your hands on the 2017 Dining Guide.
Finally, while you are walking around the district, you will find yourself drawn to the window displays of several local shops. You can shop for toys, jewelry, clothes, home and garden, furniture and antiques, just to name a few. Check out all of the shops on the 2017 Shopping Guide.
