Best Place to Take Out-of-Town Visitors: North Market

From the March 29, 2012 edition

North Market is rightfully one of the first stops many tourists make while visiting Columbus. The historic building (glowing rooster included) is a quintessential Columbus landmark. And inside is a true representation of what’s great about our city. Great stories abound — see: Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams — and a diversity of foods and wares is celebrated.

Runners-up: Columbus Zoo, German Village
