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

From the March 28, 2013 edition

Showing off your city to out-of-town visitors is always a struggle, no matter where you live.

There’s an expectation among your guests to experience whatever it is that best represents your city, but often those place-definers are overtly obvious tourist-traps and time-sucks.

The Short North, however, is none of those things.

It’s lived-in by locals, uniquely inhabited with history and stuffed with interesting Columbus-made options for food, drinks and shopping.

What other part of the city tells the story of Columbus’ renaissance into an exciting, hip and artist-rich Midwest mecca than the Short North?
