Crime is fairly low, cost of living is low, good job market

Thurmans, hound dogs pizza, columbus zoo, nationwide arena, records per minute, lost weekend records

City centered around The Ohio State University but with a lackluster downtown and surrounded by suburbia.

Shitty weather and tons of traffic with road construction.

Columbus is an inviting city with friendly people. It's a safe place to visit with many things for families to do such as the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, COSI, and a wide variety of restaurants.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is a wonderful place for a family to visit. There are also many wonderful restaurants and breweries downtown to enjoy. COSI, a science center, is another fun place for a family to visit.

Our school buildings are old and many do not have air conditioning. College football is immensely popular here, housing is plentiful, and there are a host of restaurants out there one can eat at.

The traffic on the major roads in the morning and afternoon and be rather bad and construction isn't helping. The weather can be hot in the summer and quite cold in the winter, but it's still a decent place in which to live.
