Also there are all sorts of festivals to enjoy. Arts, Oktoberfest, jazz, sports, butterflies, food trucks, It won’t be long before a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday (days of the week) festival pops up. I kid, but still…….
There are all sorts of foods to be eaten. People in Columbus love their food. There are craft beers and a lot of coffee shops around the city. All of these things are drawing people to the city.
One other thing about Columbus and it is not great news. The city ranks as the third or fourth (depending where you look) worst driving cities in America. Yet, that is not stopping people from moving to Columbus.
Also there seems to always be orange barrels out. Construction is everywhere in the city. The orange barrel could easily replace the carnation as the states flower.
