If you want anrtsy I suggest finding your way to the Short North in C-bus. I love that place! Gallery hop night is when the galleries have their places open late (1st Saturday of each month). The North Market, which is in Short North, is fun place to visit; good food and market days are a fun experience too. I like hanging around OSU too. Always something going on around there. Those are my two cents.

I agree with all of your cents! Smiley

There are always lots of festivals & shows going on all around Columbus, too.  Check out http://columbus.citysearch.com/ for all sorts of stuff happening around town.

columbus is the best!  i just moved here and i've fallen in love.  i grew up in a really small village southwest of cleveland--yes, a village; it's not even big enough to be considered a town--and i thought the transition from the country life to the city life would be overwhelming.  but it's so great and welcoming here, and there are a million parks all around, so you almost forget you're in the city.  aaaaanndddd.....we have art hops the first saturday of every month!



also, i don't know if anyone else already said this, but oberlin is a nice little town too.  comparable to yellow springs, but without the yellow springs.  they have a coffee shop called the cat in the cream there, which has world-famous cookies (they're as big as your head!).  i like oberlin a lot too.  it has LOTS of parks and an incredibly high people-to-bicycle ratio (i've heard the highest in the country, but don't quote me on that). 

overall....

ohio is the best.  period.

jerri, you're so fun!

I grew up in Ashtabula... the NE corner of Ohio.  Lots of cows & snow! Cheesy

There ARE lots of parks here...metro parks, bike paths, rose gardens...woot!  We just found another dog park in Reynoldsburg.  It's huge & has a lovely pond for the pooches to swim in.  We've been going there a few nights a week and the doggers can't get enough.

I know that this is a totally old thread, but it was bumped...soo...
Yes, Antioch is going on "hiatus" for a year-it's a shame. I don't know what it will do to the town. I grew up on a farm in between Yellow Springs and Dayton. I haven't lived in Ohio for years, but I must say it has some of the best junking/antiquing places in the country-and I've been to 48 states! There is so much to do in Columbus, Cleveland, Dayton, Cincinnati as far as art/crafts go. And I love the Athens area-a vital crafting community and beautiful to match. Ohio is filled with small college towns and there is nearly always art there-Denison,Kenyon,Wooster,it seems there's a college every exit!
My daughters love going to Ohio just for the garage sales Grin

I went to college (in Ohio) with a girl who lived in Ohio her whole entire life and had no idea what a buckeye was. Not OSU people, but what a real buckeye was. I was like ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?!  Shocked
