There’s something for everyone in the City of Columbus. As the most populous city in the state, Columbus is home to a diversity of activities and opportunities. The over 900,000 residents of Ohio’s state capital could be university students, sports enthusiasts, avid foodies or adventure-seekers, drawn to the city because of its strong sports scene, its local breweries and pubs or even by one of the largest state festivals in the nation. As diverse as Columbus’ cultural scene is its economy, which is based in a wide range of industries, including education, banking, defense, insurance, aviation, logistics, steel, apparel, medical research, health care, hospitality, technology, retail and more. The world’s largest private research and development foundation is housed in the city’s metro area, which is also home to the headquarters of five Fortune 500 companies. The city’s wealth of opportunities and options create a monumental amount of freedom and flexibility for any resident or visitor looking to settle down or explore.
