This is just some of what awaits you in Ohio's capital city. Columbus' top entertainment areas surround downtown meaning you don't have to venture far to have a good time. Next to the convention center, the Arena District is home to the Blue Jackets NHL and Clippers Triple-A Baseball teams, concerts and restaurants. In the neighboring Short North Arts District, you'll find restaurants, galleries and boutiques.
