The Arena District is fun and lively. The Arena itself has a plethora of concerts and sporting events. There is also a baseball stadium, and there are plenty of restaurants. There are 3 condo buildings with a 4th under construction. The area is very walkable

The Arena District is a great place to walk about. There are plenty of restaurants to chose from. Look for the "ruins" of Columbus Union Station.

We parked close to the arena at a meter and found it to be a safe, enjoyable place for a Saturday afternoon. We enjoyed lunch at Bostons. The brick sidewalks were beautiful and nostalgic.

My team was here for conference at the arena. We ordered online for a 1:30 delivery time at our hotel. By 2:30 still no freaky fast service. We walked the 1/2 mile to retrieve our food. There were still 3 orders in front of ours to be delivered (already 1.25 hours late). We didn't receive an apology, a discount, a... More

Spent the day downtown here for business, but was surprised on how many people were walking around during lunch time! Perfect location for a lot of restaurants which are all near by!

Maybe I'm too sedate for this area, but it seemed loud and a little cheesy to me. Walking through early in the morning allowed me to look at some of the gorgeous old buildings without the crowds.

the arena district is a trendy looking area with restaurants, fitness center, movie theater and more. clean and trendy, stylish and fun......and quick bites from places like Jimmy Johns or sit downs like Boston Pizza, Ted's Montana, a Brazilian steak house, or breakfast fare from Sunny Street café or Tim Hortons. Close to many downtown hotels and a great place... More
