Take a leisurely stroll with us through Columbus’s hip Short North and savor its culinary delights. More than just an arts district and home to the monthly Gallery Hop—a famous downtown Columbus event—the Short North also boasts a wealth of dining and shopping opportunities. The Short North is packed full of Columbus’ best restaurants, boutiques, bistros and nightlife, and this local food and walking tour is designed to show off some of the best that the Short North and Columbus have to offer.
We’ll start at the North Market, Columbus’ historic public market, where we’ll meet some of the local food vendors and learn the history of the building. We will then stop at neighborhood eating establishments, sampling some of their signature dishes and hearing their stories. Stops will include some neighborhood favorites, and some highly regarded new additions. We will finish on a sweet note with a trip to the renowned Jeni’s ice creams, featured on the Food Network’s “America’s Best Sweets.”
We will be walking approximately 1 mile during the tour, and along our route you will also learn about the colorful history of the Short North neighborhood.
The Short North Food Tour & Walking Tour starts at 11am, rain or shine. Although we are never outside for more than a few blocks at a time, we suggest that you dress appropriately for the weather.
