Let's build more new housing--great--as everyone wants to move to cities' downtowns again, but you cannot have a "Short North" as it started out with former parking lots becoming sites for pricey high-rises! The Short N is a fun place to visit, but I've stopped...More

The lack of parking is taking its toll. Several small business's and galleries have gone out of business as of summer of 2018 but strides are being made to rectify the problem. Let's hope it's not too late. The District is wonderful, vibrant and growing.

Start near the Nationwide HQ building, then hit the north market then back to High Street and keep walking north. Shops. Candy. Food. Brew pubs. Trollies. A peddle wagon roaming bar. Exercise and drink at the same time. Again, something for everyone. Cheers!

There is not normally a charge for the monthly Gallery Hop event. Maybe you are looking at some type of fundraiser being held?
