A northern suburb of Columbus and home to more than 14,000 people, Worthington is one of the Midwest’s first planned communities. Original buildings and churches still cover Worthington today and offer attractions, amenities and dining while still having a small-town feel.
Dining in Downtown Worthington is one of the best places to get good food. J. Liu of Worthington, Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza and Live Music, The Pub Out Back and the Whitney House are just few of many places that line Downtown Worthington. Dining in Worthington is even considered Columbus’ top dining establishment.
The Worthington Library was voted National Library of the Year in 2007 and currently has three branches. Worthington is also home to the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington that is a community gathering space that increases opportunities for the arts. The Worthington Community Center offers a fitness center, swimming area, basketball courts and an art studio. Worthington also offers the Healthy Worthington Coalition, a volunteer organization dedicated to health and fitness.
Downtown Worthington is the local’s favorite spot. With plenty of shops and dining, there is always something to do and see. The Shops at Worthington Place is also a favorite for those that like to shop. Farmer’s Markets, the Worthington Art Festival and the 4th of July Worthington Family Picnic are just a few highlights of living and visiting the Worthington area. The Village Green is also a popular destination in the summer with concerts and ice cream socials weekly.
