Overview of Columbus

Live in the heart of Columbus and take advantage of everything that the city has to offer - from great nightlife to lively surroundings and more, you'll love living in your one-bedroom apartment in Downtown. Your nights and weekends will be far from mundane when you live in the center of all the activity. Remedy a long work day by immersing yourself in the busy surroundings of your new neighborhood, whether it means visiting a bar, attending a concert or going out to restaurant. 

You won't worry about getting to work on time or staying out later when your apartment's right in the area. Walking to and from work will be a breeze. In fact, your location is in such a great area that you'll even want to go home for lunch! 

Never feel crowded

Despite being a large and very well-known city, Columbus stands out from other metropolitan areas. Unlike New York, your city isn't packed with towering skyscrapers that block out the sun and obscure your view of the big blue skies. Instead, it's an urban landscape with plenty of room between buildings and wide streets that are interspersed with trees and comfortably accommodate cars. When you live in your one-bedroom apartment in Columbus, you'll enjoy the bustling activity and beautifully designed buildings, but you'll never feel crowded.

Enjoy the arts

Art is the norm when you live in Columbus. After all, it's where Doris Shlayn's ART sculpture stands, clearly spelling out the word in a bold red and standing over Gay Street. Whether you love viewing art or enjoy doing it, you're in the perfect spot to experience all the wonderful work that Columbus has to offer.

The Columbus Museum of Art has a stunning collection of 19th and early 20th century American and European art. You'll be able to admire examples of Impressionism, German Expressionism and Cubism. Additionally, it holds special exhibits, so you'll want to have the museum schedule on hand and keep an eye out for ones that pique your interest. Want a more hands-on approach? Don't worry, because the museum offers art-making classes just steps away from your one-bedroom Downtown apartment. 

Immerse yourself

The nearby Kelton House Museum and Garden is a more immersive setting, where the architecture both inside and outside is art in of itself. This Victorian mansion showcases life in Columbus during the second half of the 19th century. You can attend lectures, take tours and even gaze into the America's past by taking a look at the house's role in the Underground Railroad.

Topiary Park sits east of Kelton House and was designed after the style of Georges Seurat's painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte." You'll love this three-dimensional depiction of the two-dimensional work. 

Take up art

If you consider art as more than just a hobby, then the Columbus College of Art and Design is where you'll want to be taking classes. The institution offers both bachelor and master of fine arts degrees. There are nine undergraduate majors, including illustration, interior design, industrial design and photography. 

Meet other artists and join the growing art movement of Short North, located north of your one-bedroom apartment in Columbus. This steadily growing, up-and-coming district is known for its historic architectures and public art. Be a part of art history in the making by breaking out the museums and participating in the contemporary city culture, admiring colorful murals and appreciating how old spaces can be repurposed for new uses.

Living in the bustling city will provide you with plenty of inspiration to create art, and with so many great resources right outside your door, you can't go wrong living in Downtown.
