The NY Times is writing about Columbus! Business First is touting Columbus as One of the 10 Best Cities to do Business in 2009 and we still have good reason to celebrate our beloved Buckeyes and their crushing defeat over the team to our North….you know who I’m talking about. (Even if your not a football fan, the city does FEEL it when we win or loose during football season and everybody loves a winner!) Our Columbus Crew won the MLS Championship this year. We are famous around the globe because of our Crew! The Columbus Board of Realtors reminds us that Real Estate is always local and we do enjoy an “Affordable, Stable and Available” market place for homes. I have several friends who have enjoyed the “Columbus Boomerang Effect” even further bolstering my personal opinion that we are an Awesome City! (Have any people in your life that leave for a bit, but come back to plant some roots? That’s the Boomerang Effect!) While I love so much of the development plans Columbus has underway and I’ll always be a fan of the University District and all that it encompasses, our music scene is completely stellar and where do I start with our impressive array of restaurant choices! However, I’ll always maintain, that Columbus works because of our people. It’s always about the people despite all the other treasures we have to offer. You might have to poke around a little bit to find your people, but once “you’re in”, you are home. What are some of your favorite things about Columbus? We would love to hear from you!
Welcome to the new blog spot for The Columbus Team at Keller Williams Capital Partners Realty. We know Columbus! Thanks for reading and please let us know if there is anything you want to know about Columbus Real Estate, Real Estate in general or an event you want to know more about or even promote. We’ll do our best to share our knowledge and help keep you informed.
Fall has arrived and if you’re like me, a life-long Columbus resident, we welcome the change of seasons with an unspoken excitement for cool evenings with friends on the porch, Mother Nature’s gift of color and all the exceptional fresh veggies that come to the table quicker than we can eat their bounty! (Actually, there are countless more reasons to love the Fall Season, but this is just a start.) One can smell the familiar scent of the illustrious urban fire pit as we take advantage of our sacrificed trees and branches while we review our day, contemplate our future and enjoy our blessings. On the flip side, we know what is coming next…. As the seasons shift we’ll experience Darkness by 5 PM, icy car window’s to scrape in the morning and a general slow down as we hunker down for the coming winter, but enough about that!
Let’s celebrate the season and fall in love with our city again! Here’s a short list of fun fall activities to take advantage of in Central Ohio before Old Man Winter takes hold:
1. Circle S Farms: Kids can play in a barn full of hay, take a hay ride to the pumpkin field and enjoy a taste of the country.
2.Wexner Center for the Arts: Make sure to see the latest and greatest exhibits.
4.Boo at the Zoo: Check the Columbus Zoo website for times through October for family friendly fun at our very own world class Columbus Zoo & Aquarium!
5.Ohio’s Haunted Houses: We’ve got all the up to date info for you on our Columbus Haunted Houses page.
6.COSI: COSI is always enjoying new exhibits and beginning in October, “Sesame Street Presents: The Body” will launch a new interactive exhibit. Check out the annual membershipfor great savings. If you go a couple of times in a year, it’s well worth the cost of the membership.
7.Renaissance Festival: The annual Renaissance Festival is in full motion for the season with loads of entertainment, food and jolly good times in the spirit of 16th Century England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I on 30 acre historical replication of a village in Harveysburg, Ohio. Get your turkey legs here!
8.OSU Football: Easy entertainment during the home games can be found everywhere you look, but most especially along Lane Ave. bordering the north side of the University. Go Bucks!
We are so fortunate to live in Columbus, a dynamic hub nestled in Central Ohio with so many outlets for culture and arts, sporting events, amazing restaurants and world class libraries and parks. Enjoy!
