You'll find the open-air shopping district, Easton Town Center, about a 10 miles northeast of downtown Columbus, up I-670 E. Hosting stores like Nordstrom, Coach and Crate and Barrel, the district also welcomes a farmers market on Thursdays from June to August. The complex is home to a number of restaurants as well, which range from fast and casual (Panera Bread and Cosi) to more upscale establishments like Smith & Wollensky and Mitchell's Ocean Club. Come summertime, Easton Town Center hosts several events, including art shows, yoga classes, movie screenings and concerts.
Travelers say this is a great place to shop, grab a meal and people-watch. However, some say that it's best to visit this shopping complex during the day as lately the nighttime crowd has become a little rough.
The shopping complex is best reached by car; it's open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. For more information on stores and restaurants at the Easton Town Center, visit the website.
