Ohio's only public market is in Columbus and certainly worth a walk through. North Market was first established in 1876 and is home to more than 30 vendors selling a range of products, including fresh meat, produce, baked goods, cheese and flowers. On select Saturdays, a portion of the market is set up outside, and on Sundays in June to October local artwork, furniture, jewelry and more is also on display.

Visitors say this market provides a wonderful food selection at affordable prices. Many were impressed with the sheer variety of cuisine types represented at this small market, and say there's something for everyone here. A few warn that the market gets quite congested on the weekends, so it's best to arrive early or visit on a weekday to beat the crowds.

You'll find North Market just north of Huntington Park and the Arena District. On-site parking is available for a small fee. The market is open Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. For additional information on vendors, events and festivals, visit North Market's website.

Enjoying a baseball game at Huntington Park is one of recent travelers' favorite things to do. The homegrown Columbus Clippers are the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians and visitors appreciate the views, the atmosphere and the affordability of games at this ballpark. The park can accommodate 10,000 but most say it's rarely crowded, allowing for visitors to walk around and explore different parts of the stadium. Recent travelers added there's not a bad seat in the house.

Single game tickets cost between $7 and $20 for adults and between $4 and $7 for children younger than 12 and seniors, depending on the seat. Several concessions vendors are spread throughout the stadium for food and drink needs. You'll find the stadium downtown in the Arena District; parking is available on-site for a small fee.
