The Discovery City

More than just one of the nation's top business centers, Columbus is a mixture of many different parts of America, situated at the spot where the so-called "Bible Belt" meets the varied cultures of the Great Plains and Appalachia. Named after Christopher Columbus, this cosmopolitan city boasts America's highest concentration of students, most of them attending classes at one of the country's biggest public research universities. The nearly 60,000 students affect the city's economy by making this one of the most budget-friendly urban centers in the United States. The city's diverse neighborhoods offer a good selection of museums, galleries, restaurants, and shops, which attract a growing number of tourists. Use our United States trip itinerary builder website to arrange the details of your trip to Columbus and other destinations.
