Great downtown area

Visiting on a weekend with lots to do and lots of eating and entertainment options in the area. Just wish the weather would have cooperated more.

Visited for a Blue Jackets game and came back for a Clippers game. Had a great time, and plenty of restaurants to choose from.

This is a beautiful area with lots of varying restaurant choices. The district is easy to navigate with the hockey arena as the focal point.

Big CIty Feel to These Streets - Loud Noisy Drunken Sports Fans and Rock Concert Goers. They are trying to sell this as a place to live. Huh?

Lots of restaurants (50+) from higher end, candle lit dinners to burger joints and sports bars. On a weekend evening, this is the place to be. Parking can be a bit tricky, but $5-6 for an uber ride can resolve that quickly. Oh, & there are not many chain restaurants around there. If you're like me and always wanting to... More

The people we met were enjoying themselves, There were a number of parks and a lot of beautiful foliage as well as brick streets mainly reserved for walking which made this an enjoyable place to stroll around.

Not a shopping mall, calm down. A mall like Boston Commons or Washington Mall or Mall of America... okay not MoA. But you get the picture. It's a nice little historic district that sets a solid and decent time for the downtown area. I enjoyed it very much. The arena, the ballfield, the arch, the little park, they're all part... More
