Columbus, Ohio: OSU, Acclaimed Museums, and One of the Country’s Best Zoos
In 2012, Columbus made Business Week’s list of America’s 50 best cities, thanks in part to the city’s best-known institution—Ohio State University. Though the university helps drive urban progress, Ohio’s capital is much more than a college town. Its walkable downtown is home to trendy restaurants and bars as well as a groundbreaking interactive science museum, COSI, and the highly acclaimed Columbus Museum of Art. The Scioto River bisects the city, flowing past public parks and miles of walking and biking paths. A half hour north lies one of the country’s best zoos, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium—its director emeritus is the famous Jack Hanna.
