"I love Columbus! It is an area that keeps growing and expanding with people of all different cultures and backgrounds. There are lots of opportunities to meet new people and explore exciting places. Almost anyone can find something they enjoy here to do. The activities are numerous. For example, they have multiple music halls to suit everyone's tastes. The Newport is great for alternative and up-and-coming artists and the Schottenstein Center houses tons of big artists. In addition to entertainment, there are lots of parks for being in an urban environment. This is great for people with dogs or people who just need a break from the hectic feel of city life. I would highly recommend this area for people with families as well. There are growing suburban areas surrounding Columbus that have great schools and shops of their own to explore. Once I am done with college, I may set up a permanent home in Columbus myself because the environment is unmatched." - Niche.com
