If you’ve ever met someone from Columbus, Ohio, there are two things they will make very clear to you. They love their city, and they are indeed Buckeye’s. Aside from college football, there is a whole host of other reasons these folks are passionate about their city. Columbus has an amazing culture that gives it a unique identity. Whether you’re looking to visit a botanical garden, enjoy a night at a local spot at the Brewery District, or just want the convenience and diversity of a city with soul, Columbus will win you over as a new place to call home. While nearly all parts of Columbus are great in one respect or another, the neighborhoods of Upper Arlington, Bexley and Clintonville deserve special attention.
Soaring high on the scoreboard, this neighborhood exceeds expectations in all aspects. Not only does it have a great employment market, your kids will attend some of the best schools. If that doesn’t impress you, perhaps endless activities, a great housing market and a quick commute by car or even public transit might be the proverbial icing on the cake. Situated just outside of Ohio State University and close to the school’s golf club, the area has a great, spirit filled atmosphere nearby, but far away enough to have peace and quiet whenever you’d like. Game day on campus is a quick trip away, and so are many restaurants, shopping and even a winery and country clubs right around the corner. Upper Arlington is great for anyone, and certainly a great place to raise a family. It does an amazing job of combining the amenities found in larger cities with the peacefulness of a suburb to create its own unique vibe. It’s truly a great neighborhood to call home!
Bexley is a great neighborhood that has something for literally everyone. This suburb makes a perfect location for families who want a relaxed environment, while still being within proximity to city conveniences. With tons of shopping like the Easton Town Center, the Discovery District, dining, parks and recreational activities like the Olentangy Bike Path Schiller Park, and confectionary delights at Greater’s Ice Cream Factory your family will be happy to call Bexley home. The access to major highways and ample public transit for a suburb make life easier. This area is also within a reasonable commute to downtown Columbus. With so much to do and such a great place to live, you’ll find your home and heart in Bexley.
Any Buckeye at heart will love Clintonville. The area has not only a great family environment, but the amenities can’t be beat. Being along two major highway corridors and having access to many bus lines, getting around is easy. Aside from having many dining options and even a local winery, you’ll never run out of local culinary delights in this neighborhood. The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum and Schwarz Castle give this neighborhood its distinct character. With a low cost of living, a great job market, the best health care, and a great employment market, it’s easy to see why so many are proud to call Clintonville home.
