ApocalypseCow:  Is your hotel the Hilton downtown? If it is I would check out the North Market, it’s an awesome little place. You MUST go to Jeni’s and get some ice cream. There are locations all over Columbus. If it’s nice out the Park of Roses is really pretty. There are also a ton of unique little restaurants and boutiques along High St in the Short North that are pretty fun to browse. I’ve lived here almost a decade so if you have any questions feel free to ask away 😉

I’m not sure if you’re native to Ohio or not, but you could schedule it over a home OSU football game and go!

ApocalypseCow:  Dude Jeni’s is based out of Columbus!!! lol the closest to Polaris will probably be the Dublin shop. Definitely second the OSU game and tailgating experience.

If you have time to walk around the OSU campus before the game, check out Thompson Library. It’s kinda nerdy but it’s huge and gorgeous!

For sushi, I like Kikyo in Upper Arlington. If you like tacos, there is also Tacos al Pastor in Upper Arlington which made it to a top 10 taco list nationwide. It started out as a taco truck but they have a storefront now and they have the best pork tacos (and all other types). Great prices still too. 

North Market is a good place to look around too, there are lots of restaurants (and also a Jeni’s inside). If you shop around the Short North (downtown) this would be a good place to stop. If your stay coincides with the first Saturday of the month, there is an event called Gallery Hop where all the shops in the Short North stay open late and there are a lot of art galleries, sometimes street performers, and of course a good time explore some of the restaurants.

If you’re into food, girl, we have food here.  Take pandabee’s suggestion and hit up North Market–you’ll get a little sample of lots of different restaurants there.  As has been mentioned, Jeni’s is also worth visiting.  If you’re up in the Polaris area and you like the outdoors, Highbanks Metropark is only a short drive away, and it’s very pretty.  Will you have a car?  If you are willing to drive a couple of hours south of the city, the Ohio Renaissance Festival runs in September and October, and that can be a fun experience, too.  The Greek Festival is also usually going on (over Labor Day weekend, I think.)  The Columbus Museum of Art always has something interesting going on, and the Wexner Center often has cool artists coming through as well.  Also, please get to COSI, the amazing science museum, and our lovely Zoo.  In fact, if you’re here during the week, the zoo is EMPTY on weekday mornings in September, and it’s usually cool enough outside that all of the animals are out and being active.

ApocalypseCow:  Go to Skillet in German Village.  Not too expensive and one of the best meals I had when I lived there.

I used to live in Charleston, SC so I’m a little spoiled when it comes to food.  Skillet definitely lived up to my expectations.  Skip Barcelona, it was disappointing.  For sushi, I like Aki Hana.  Very authentic.  In fact, most of the people eating there tend to be Japanese.

With that said, if you can swing Charleston instead, I definitely reccommend it rather than Columbus 🙂

ApocalypseCow:  Oh, and Pistachia Vera in German Village has great coffee!  Grab something there and then head to Skillet for brunch on a weekend.  There’s usually a wait.
