Went to see CBJ win vs. the Flyers. Love the arena, crowd is good and atmosphere is fun and exciting. Need cheaper beer though...

Since I work in the Arena District I get around there quite a bit. The sports venues are great -- hockey and baseball -- lots of places to eat before and after the games too. Close to freeways so it is easy to get anywhere in the City. Especially close to the Short North and OSU.

Love the brick streets and old building. We went during a special event and walked and walked but it was worth it. Great parking and lots of restaurants. If your going to a baseball game or hockey game better make reservations for dinner. These places fill up early.

Great place to spend an afternoon. Lots of cool brew pubs and restaurants to check out. Very pedestrian friendly place to go and stroll around.

Went to a hockey game here. It was an awesome atmosphere, fans were nice, tickets were reasonable and it was a great time. I stayed at Red Roof inn Columbus West and that was the worst part of the trip
