Central Ohio is very liveable and very clean
Columbus,Ohio is one of the most liveable cities in the country...maybe even the most liveable here is why...
CLEAN: COLUMBUS,OHIO IS SO CLEAN YOUR FEET STREAK ON THE SIDE-WALK..IT IS THE CLEANEST CITY IN THE US
Location: 70 minutes from Cincinnati theme parks, 90 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati (which is very impressive, especially the 7th and walnut library), 2 hours from Cleveland's flats district and ethnic neighborhoods, 2 and a quarter outside of Pittsburgh's strip district, carson street Italian food and 90 something ethnic neighborhoods
Employment: Columbus,Ohio is a major employment center from health care, insurance, blue-collar management and small mom and pop operation (many,many of those) the unemployment is like 4% right now, it used to be like 1 3/4% before the recession, wages are very high.
Cost of Living: Is very,very low especially on the south central and south near west side of Columbus a 3 bedroom duplex can be had for $350 a month...grocreys are dirt cheap...A motel room thats decent can be had in South Granville or Olentangy for $125 a week....thats value
Good Bus service: Buses on some routes run every 5 minutes....service starts at 4:30am and ends at midnight
Try a Sausage, then a Bavarian Cream Puff
Located in the Old German village area, this restaurant serves delicious german cuisine. I tend to gete the bahama mama sausage and follow it up with a cream puff. They are incredible large and tasty, so if you have a partner to split it with you both might be happier.
The Olde Mohawk
People who find themselves hungry in Columbus after 10:00 p.m. on weeknights typically order a pizza. With the exception of trashy 24 hour chain restuarants (Tee-Jay's, Steak and Shake) Columbus pretty much rolls up the sidewalks at around 10:00 p.m Monday-Thursday. The Olde Mohawk is one of the happy exceptions to this, staying open past midnight on weekdays, and past 1:00 a.m. A 'Pub with Grub' with low key lighting and a laid back atmosphere, the Mohawk sits in the heart of beautiful German Village. The food is by no means expeptional, but its pretty good. The burgers are large, and the various single portion pizzas are quite good. The favorites amougnst regulars seem to be the pastas. The best menu item tends to be the ever changing special- which is what I almost always order. Tuesdays are all-you-can-eat-quesadilla nights. The deserts are outstanding. A suprising menu item: real turtle soup (tastes like chicken.) Chocolate Suicide Cake
Gotta Love Statues!
Columbus has many very cool and detailed statues all throughout the city and parks, mainly concentrating on the downtown area. Personally I love photographing statues and I am in awe towards the artists that create them. In the picture section of this tip is some photos of my favorite statues around the downtown area. Enjoy!
World War I Memorial Statue
Along with the Ohio Spirit of '98 Soldier Statue, the bronze of equally human proportions, the Ohio Doughboy serves as guard to the West entrance to the Ohio Statehouse. The Doughboy statue is a memorial to veterans of World War I, and was dedicated in 1930. The bronze cast statue is the work of Arthur Ivone.
