Travel Tips for Columbus

Go have lunch at the North...

by ColumbusGuy

Go have lunch at the North Market
The North Market is Columbus's equivelant of Seattle's Pike Market, or Boston's Quincy Market. Not as large as those two places, it, nonetheless has its charms. Featuring excellent markets and food stalls, its a great place to have lunch, pick up some coffe, wine, or a quarter poud of Roquefort. Star of India is a standout for lunch.

Best Chinese Restaurant in Columbus

by Robot433 about Little Dragons

This is the restaurant that Chinese people eat at in Columbus. To prove this to yourself, you need only visit during lunchtime on the weekends and you'll see lots of large groups and families sharing dim sum and various dishes. Like most great Chinese restaurants (eg, House of Nanking in San Francisco), the interior is far from fancy, but the chef is a master. However, you will need to ask for the Chinese menu so you are not limited to the typical fried rice/General Tso chicken/egg drop soup fare. Some of the wait staff have better English skills than others, but they're all very friendly and professional. And the food is reasonably priced. My wife celebrated her birthday here last year, and the bill for 15 guests was just over $200. It is nearly impossible to narrow it down, but here are some of my faves: spicy salted squid, crispy smelts, spicy wonton appetizer, Chinese broccoli in garlic sauce, scallion pancake, mapa tofu, etc. Please note that, although good, their dim sum is served by order, not off carts as is typical for big-city dim sum restaurants. Remember that Chinese families order food family style and share several dishes. In other words, if you order the squid, all you're getting is a plate of squid with nothing else but a bowl of white rice. Be prepared to order a couple of meat or fish dishes and one or two vegetables.

Dinner and a show

by spartan about The Japanese Steak House

You sit at long, low tables with many other people, and in the center of the table is a large rectangular grill. Servers take drink and food orders and a chef comes out with raw filet, chicken, shrimp and/lobster tails to prepare the meals. They flip shrimp tails into peoples' pockets and show great expertise with sharp knives and sliced up veggies.

They have a creamy sauce that is served on the finished meal (I forget the name of it, but your waiter will ask you if you want it) which is high in calories, but tastes fantastic. This restaurant can be very expensive, but try it you'll like it. Shrimp, Chicken, Beef and Lobster combinations

Center of Science and Industry

by Tom_Fields

All over the country, these science centers are popping up like mushrooms after a summer storm. This is among the better ones (my favorite remains the Exploratorium in San Francisco). Here, one can actually learn something.

Opening in 1964, the Center of Science and Industry, or COSI, has gradually expanded and diversified. Arata Isozaki designed this building, which covers 320,000 square feet.

There are some things that adults can appreciate, but COSI is mainly for children. There are mock-ups of a space station (with artificial gravity), a deep-sea base with a submarine, some computer simulators, and other things for kids to play with. This is more of a theme park than a museum.

Columbus City Hall and Columbus Statue

by atufft

A very large and impressive statue of Columbus, present in 1955 by the United Italian-American Association, stands in front of the Columbus City Hall. Behind the statue is the outstanding gothic style city hall building built in 1872. I walked around the landscaping of the City Hall and got some great shots from near the river.
