On a daytrip to Columbus, we made a brief stop in this neighborhood after noticing the beautiful murals. I had to take some photos!! Really stunning and thought-provoking!! Would love to come back and walk around some more as well as visit some of the shops and restaurants.

Parking rule changes have ruined Short North, and if you can't figure out the app in time, $30 tickets (that become $50) after 10 days. You are better off going to Bridge Park in Dublin, plenty of free quality parking and the dinning and stores are just as good.

I felt like we were in NYC’s Soho. Large attractive murals on the sides of buildings both high & low. Unique shops, outdoor cafe’s, restaurants and bars. The area is marked with arches over the street that light up. Pretty flower displays & colorful people.

We wish we could have been there for the gallery hop on the first Friday of the month. Still, Short North is a great neighborhood with unique, fun dining and shopping options.

Go for the first Saturday of the month "Gallery Hop" especially in nice weather. Lots of action. The Pearl, The GuildHouse, Marcellas, Northstar, Lemongrass, Basi, Jenni's, Hyde Park to name just a few of the top notch restaurants to choose from. The only negative of the area is PARKING is fierce, in short supply. There are lots of valet stands ($$$) and the meters are driven by phone app....which is beyond me.

This is a success story in the city of Columbus. Many years ago this area wasnot exaactly the cultural haven it is now. This section of town, minutes from downtown Columbus, has become a very popular site. During your visit you will find many converted structures. Just about anything can be found there: old clothing, records, various restaurants, flower shops, toys and jewelry. For those of us from Columbus, it is exciting to see the progression of this area.

Having been far too many years since I've made it back to the area, I was blown away by the countless improvements changes and choices surrounding the University and Columbus area. Countless great places to eat & drink. Great area. We had our group of 9 Buckeyes converge for the football weekend and glad we stopped back in. We'll be back sooner than later.
