Many cities have similar areas to the Columbus Short North Arts District. While the area has several quite interesting and well curated Galleries we really did not find many eclectic shops or boutiques that I read about. You will certainly have no problem finding either...More

So much to do here. Lots of unique restaurants, shops, galleries, many cuisines, boutiques, fun things to browse or buy. Take a stroll through Goodale Park, it's beautiful, see the quaint re-habbed houses, have a great meal, try some Jeni's ice cream, it's fantastic!

Loved this place! Lots of fun places to visit and eat at. It was also fun to just walk up and down just to see what might be there. There was construction and parking was somewhat difficult to find, but no biggie!

This is a wonderful must go area of Columbus. It is filled with small boutique shopping and some of the best dining in Columbus. It is also filled with art and breweries. They have the gallery hop every month as well.

I guess if you live in the area it is something to do. Coming from out of town it was simply businesses and restaurants down the street. They look nice but nothing real special.

There is not normally a charge for the monthly Gallery Hop event. Maybe you are looking at some type of fundraiser being held?
