A New Love Affair: Columbus Favorites

This weekend Ben and I braved the snow and spent Friday and Saturday night in Columbus. Why its taken us so long to get up there, I’m not sure, but I loved it! We stayed about fifteen minutes from downtown at the Hilton Polaris and the whole weekend was the perfect mix of relaxing and doing. My very favorite was the German Village, a historic district of Columbus complete with cobblestone streets and authentic German bakeries. We devoured some incredible pizza and followed it up with German pastries. If the clouds hand’t been leaking freezing slush, I could have wandered those streets, camera in hand, for hours.
^^so much brick – I felt like I was back in Europe, wandering the city streets of Tallin. The whole neighborhood was seeping with stories, with culture, with history. I’m already planning our next trip (to Columbus, not Estonia).

^^all decorated for Christmas
^^I loved these iron numbers (and the 1/2s)


^^best pizza I’ve had in America, hands down. I’m so glad we found this little gem.

^^the main room squeezed in fifteen tables and they cooked just on the other side of the counter. In the summer they open up to a large patio courtyard in the front.


^goat cheese and sausage (mine)

^^pesto artichoke (Ben’s)

I’m thankful for a husband who works so hard and a company that rewards their employees in fun ways. Columbus, we’ll be back.

  1. Columbus is a great town – the Short North and Jeni's ice cream are a few of my favorites. Where is the pizza from?

  2. German Village is by far my most favorite part of Columbus. I love all of the cobblestone too!
