COLUMBUS, OHIO This vibrant city has so much to explore, from the eclec- tic art scene, to the microbreweries that dot the land (there are more than 30!). Ohio State University is nes- tled within the university district, which is comprised of a handful of smaller neighborhoods, including: Glen Echo, SoHud, the Peach District, Old North Columbus, and Tuttle Park. Enjoy brightly colored murals along the streets, historic churches and memorials, and small din- ers that the locals go crazy over. If you are hungry for something unique and delicious, head over to Mad Mex or the Ugly Tuna Saloona, both of which are co-ed critically-acclaimed. Mad Mex is and American-Mexican fusion spot that is serving up classics with a twist, along with original creations, like the Mad Mex crab dip. Grab a fishbowl at the Ugly Tuna Saloona, like The Chumbucket, with Three Olives Cherry, melon liquor, sour mix, and Sprite! No matter what you are searching for when in a college city, you’ll find it here in the Midwest. The weather is beautiful during summer, and the schools will be calmer with vacation in effect. Try out one of these “univer- cities,” and experience the history, food, and quirky per- sonalities that these areas are offering up to visitors of all grades!
