The variety of shops, goods, eateries, and art never cease to amaze. A perfect place to explore when visiting Columbus for those interested in something more than a mall fare!

I go to Ohio State (campus is right down High Street from the Short North) and this is the best place to come for a fun night out. When my mom comes to visit we love to check out the galleries and bars, and when it is my friends and I, the restaurants and fun events are always awesome. The... More

Loads of galleries and restaurants. This s sort of the chic place to spend a weekend evening. Parking is at a premium, so the valet is the way to go.

We live in Columbus and go here often to shop and to enjoy dinner. It truly is a diamond for the city. For sure take the time to walk around this area.

A fun place to walk and shop. Great mix of shops and dinning. Big Fun is a great toy store. Plenty of coffee shops to keep you amped.

The Short North in Columbus is your destination for the Arts, Food, Fun and Hockey! While the food is great up and down high street, there are many places that foster unique art galleries as well as "boutique" shops. Nationwide Arena is around the corner as is the North Market, where you will find foods and gifts from many cultures!... More

Fun area to walk around in, shop and plenty of small bars and restaurants to try out. We rode the free CBUS from the Hilton downtown and enjoyed walking back to the hotel. Check out the Pint House if you like craft beers and wings.
