“Columbus is a town in which almost anything is likely to happen and in which almost everything has,” wrote native son James Thurber. It’s true that Columbus, in its own unassuming way, has grown into a great metropolis, with something for almost everyone. Columbus is Ohio’s state capital and is also the center of Buckeye pride. Columbus is home to The Ohio State University, the state’s flagship, and the Buckeyes are a college football powerhouse. This is a town that roars on game day and if you hear someone yelling O-H, better yell back I-O. But Columbus is much more than football and the university. It’s also thriving economically, home to multinational and Fortune 500 headquarters, a flourishing tech scene with both outposts of established companies and an expanding start-up culture, and a strong manufacturing sector. Greater Columbus comprises ten counties, which includes farmland, quaint villages, lakefront living, planned communities, traditional suburbs, and grand exurbs.
