Must stop for people visiting Columbus. Great bars and restaurants, shops, etc. pedestrian friendly and fun to walk. Think King Street in Charleston with less history.

The gallery hop is great. The famous ice cream joint rocks.The restaurants are cool, but not much diversity is visible or available food wise.

Nice trendy shopping and dining area. Good selection of pubs that offer a variety of local craft beer. Parking on the side streets is abundant and cheap. The short north area is close to other Columbus attractions and I would recommend leaving your card and taking the free hop on hop off trolley

Love the galleries and restaurants here especially the Happy Greek and the North Market. Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream always has something interesting and different that I love to sample in the North Market, Easy to find something to do here.
