It is with great enthusiasm that I lend my support to CityPulse Columbus. I encourage you to use this incredible resource as not only a guide to the Columbus young professional community but also as an introduction to all of the great people, places and things that contribute to the vibrancy of our city.
On behalf of our great city, I invite you to explore Columbus. Our rich and diverse neighborhoods offer fun for any taste. From the always bustling Arena District to the family favorite COSI and from our beautiful and engaging Franklin Park Conservatory to the shops and restaurants of our many historic and vibrant neighborhoods, Columbus offers something for everyone.
Not only is Columbus the state capital, it is also the nation’s 14th largest city and a metropolis that is thriving thanks to the members of our community. In Columbus, we are blessed with a dynamic business climate, a commitment to celebrating diversity, numerous annual festivals and cultural events, and exciting arts and entertainment opportunities. No matter what season it is, we are proud to be the home of great professional, amateur and collegiate sports teams. Teams like the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets and the Ohio State Buckeyes help us to connect with our neighbors and stand together in support of something.
We are a young city that continues to grow and innovate. I invite you to grow with us as we continue our work to make Columbus America’s Opportunity City.
