This historic neighborhood was named after the sixth governor of Ohio, Thomas Worthington, in 1803. The landscaped, walkable streets and the unique businesses add to the already vibrant scene. As with nearly every neighborhood, it is separated into Worthington and the historic Olde Worthington where numerous buildings have been restored and preserved or renovated for a variety of uses. The hustle and bustle of visitors and residents keep things lively.
The housing options are ample surrounded by 13 parks totaling 200 acres of green space. Only nine miles from downtown Columbus, Worthington provides a perfect balance of park to city and is close to three of the major roadways, I-270, I-71 and SR 315.
The Village Green is home to park-goers, summer festivals and concerts, and great opportunities to be outdoors. The McConnell Arts Center provides opportunities to experience art, take a class, or hear music in their performance hall.
Worthington is perfect for the foodie at heart from Cameron’s American Bistro to The Wine Bistro. Early birds can visit Farmers Markets from May to October, giving locals time to slow down and pick their own produce.
The Worthington Arts Festival in June is rated one of central Ohio’s finest art shows. Old Worthington Market Day is in September, the Taste of Worthington is held in mid-July (and welcomes nearly 5,000 people), and Treasures on the Green in late July offers a flea market style shopping experience.
