Its always good on the weekends, but if you can hit the "Gallery Hop" its a must. Great dinning, fun places to see, great people watching. Going to "Big Fun" is a must.

A wonderful vibrant area adjacent to downtown. These days you see more cranes than art galleries. Still a very social area, nice restaurants and bars. A definite stop when in Columbus.
