The district incorporates a riverside walk, two sports venues, a food market, and sometimes outdoor activities such as live music and festivals. It is located on the near northwest of downtown, and is very safe. Lots of city police presence, parking rates are very reasonable by large city standards.

The Arena District has some of the best nightlife because of the many restaurants and bars, and the Lifestyles Community Pavilion which... More

OK….I'm a bit biased because I work in the Arena District. With that said, you won't find a better area of town for entertainment such as concerts and sporting events like baseball and hockey. The array of eateries is fantastic and there is plenty of easy parking. Great part of the city to visit!

This is the future of how cities can finally capitalize on sports facilities. Put them downtown and use them to build family-friendly entertainment districts.

Well it's new to us!! Lived in Columbus a long time ago before the new Clippers stadium was built. The Arena area is a fun place to walk around before the games, with plenty of restaurants and bars. And if they're not in town, just go for the restaurants. Great area to visit. Nice job, Columbus!!!
