Downtown Columbus


From The Scioto Mile to Nationwide Arena to Columbus Commons to the Columbus Clippers at Huntington Park to the nationally ranked Columbus Metropolitan Library and Columbus Museum of Art, the landscape changes the way you discover the city.

Some might say we still have a way to go, but that’s okay because we are open and smart, and we’ll get there together.

 Community and collaboration are the names of the game. In this city, you get a seat at the table whether you call ColumbUS home or headquarters.

Columbus Downtown Development Corporation and Capitol South Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation take the lead on landscape altering projects downtown. Capital Crossroads Special Improvement District and Discovery Special Improvement District help keep downtown the clean, safe and fun. If you see our Downtown Ambassadors, make sure to ask them where to get a great burger and beer. Our Ambassadors are just like your own walking concierge.

So, explore the city. Take your own tour with our Downtown Walking Map. Download the full size map (11″ x 17″) or try a map just a little smaller (8″ x 11″). Either way, you’re gonna love what you find. If you need some fancy, schmancy pocket-size maps let us know, we’d be happy to send you some.

And, if you need some Columbus swag, check out the Experience Columbus Visitor Center at 277 W. Nationwide Boulevard, right downtown. They’ve got tons of Made in CBUS things that you can’t live without.
