Setting a new standard for metropolitan development

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!!!

Went to a clippers minor league game. Don't stress over getting seats before the game. Save the transaction fees and buy at the stadium. There are a few restaurants in the local vicinity to keep you happy before the game starts.

We always enjoy our walks through the arena district. Fun things to look at and really nice restaurants. Its a very diverse crowd and you have the North Market on the fringes. Take the time to check out the area on a sunny day.

Was here the Friday before Stones concert at Ohio Stadium. Bernard Fowler and Band 2 were incredible. This venue is right downtown, parking a bit tricky, but I snagged the last spot behind the building. Spacious inside, has lounge area, reserved tables, and balcony. Have to get there a little early to be at front of stage, where I was,... More

You can take in a ballgame, a hockey game, a movie, a concert or all of them in a safe, clean area with plenty of restaurants all within walking distance of the Convention Center or hotels surrounding the Convention Center.
