Columbus : Michelin's recommendations
Ohio's capital city, Columbus marks the approximate center of the state. Located on the banks of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers, the city was named for Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus; a full-size replica of his flagship the Santa Maria is docked downtown and serves as a history museum of Columbus' day. This is a lively city, combining a strong preservationist ethic with forward-thinking development. In the Brewery District, old brick warehouses have been converted into clubs and brewpubs while German Village preserves some 233 acres of mid-19C residences. The Ohio State University, with almost 60,000 students, boasts one of the largest enrollments in the nation.
