See why TripAdvisor calls Columbus a ‘Best Destination’

We hate to say we told you so, but … well, we told you so.

Columbus has nabbed attention for being the place to be for tech startups, hipster homebuyers, and college graduates (among many others).

This time TripAdvisor is singing our city’s praises. The travel review website recently named our hometown one of “The Best U.S. Destinations You Haven’t Visited Yet.”

“Creative-minded yet down-to-earth and affordable, Ohio’s capital city is full of beautiful neighborhoods, a critically acclaimed food scene and top-ranked attractions,” wrote TripAdvisor in its ranking of U.S. destinations on the rise.

Other Travelers’ Choice award winners, based on reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travelers, are Kihei, Hawaii; Park City, Utah; Portland, Maine; Louisville, Kentucky; and Tucson, Arizona.
